Jon Stewart welcomed "Daily Show" alumni Rob Corddry to the anchor desk Thursday (March 12), and he comments that it's nice to see what his former co-stars go on to do after they leave.

"First of all, the kids on that bus weren't repeating a rap song that they had heard. They were gleefully performing one of their fraternity's old, let's call them, anti-negro spirituals. ... Black rappers did not introduce that word into the vernacular," says Stewart.
