I don’t think I could love this any more if I tried.

HE’S IMMORTAL. HE’S IMMORTAL AND HE FLEW OFF INTO THE MOONSET WITH SANTA CLAUS AND LINCOLN. He’s going to spend the rest of eternity being a happy, fulfilled, magical do-gooder in the name of the best of America.

My heart grew three sizes the moment Jon came out, and then it just kept getting better. Neil Degrasse Tyson! The real Stephen’s family! Muppets! People in Afghanistan and on the ISS! Tek Jansen! Fellow fake newspeople from The Newsroom! And more!

And ending it with thank you for that report, Stephen, tying a bow on the whole show as the greatest adventure a TDS correspondent could have.

The thanks to their IRL supporters. The apologies to Doris Kearns Goodwin. The final shoutouts to Lorraine and Charlene, the passing-on of Sweetness to that one poor guy in the audience who just keeps getting shot, the heartwarming handholding with Jon, the everything.

I’m going to miss the show dearly, but I can’t even be sad right now. Great ending? No, greatest ending.
