Congratulations to Comedy Central on another year of success at the Emmys! The network took home an impressive five Primetime Emmys, including a nod at the great work done by “Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs.”

We were happy to see “The Colbert Report” have its much-deserved moment up at podium, with its first win in the “Outstanding Variety Series” category. After breaking “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’s” decade-long winning streak with this win, Stephen Colbert broke character in his acceptance speech — also a first for many of us to witness. He humbly extended gratitude to Jon Stewart. Then, he rescinded his humility on his show this week after the Emmys, bringing Stewart onto the show as a guest to gloat. But Stewart couldn’t be happier. You can watch it happen in the video above.

The complete details of the award wins are below.
