Last night was a "Rosewater"-themed "The Daily Show" to celebrate Jon Stewart's directorial debut.

Back in his non-premium cable chair, Oliver proceeded to lead the audience through the special programming, including interviews with Jason Jones, Maziar Bahari, Jon Stewart and more. The best part, however, was seeing the gang back together again. Watch below:
