Stephen Colbert's second time on stage tonight, first for writing, now for Best Variety Show. It was also the second time that Colbert really graciously mentioned Jon Stewart in his acceptance speech. Lovely. Other nominees in the category were: 

“The Daily Show With Jon Stewart”
“Jimmy Kimmel Live”
“Late Night With Jimmy Fallon”
“Real Time With Bill Maher”
“Saturday Night Live”

It's certainly symbolic for Colbert to dethrone his mentor, big win for The Colbert Report. A great night for the show.
