Here's a rundown of what the top correspondents are up to now:

Steve CarellSteve Carell
Arguably the most successful correspondent thus far, Carell contributed more than 330 'Daily Show' segments from 1999-2005, before leaving to head the cast of NBC's 'The Office'. He's since become a major star on the big screen, with roles in hits like 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin' and the Oscar-winning 'Little Miss Sunshine.'

Stephen ColbertStephen Colbert
After appearing in over 800 segments from 1997-2005 (take that, Carell!), Colbert went on to host Comedy Central's 'The Colbert Report,' which now leads out of the 'Daily Show.' He also competes with Jon for Emmys, critical acclaim and ratings. Luckily, they both have a sense of humor about it.
Demetri MartinDemetri Martin
Martin went on to more 'Important' things, including the Comedy Central series 'Important Things With Demetri Martin.' The show premiered to huge ratings, and has since been renewed for a second season.
Ed HelmsEd Helms
Not only is Helms featured as a late character addition on 'The Office,' playing Andy "Nard Dog' Bernard, he also had a key role in last summer's comedy feature hit 'The Hangover.'
Rob RiggleRob Riggle
Like Helms, Riggle appeared 'The Hangover.' He's also guested on CBS' 'Gary Unmarried,' and will be seen in the Brendan Frasier family film 'Furry Vengance,' alongside our next correspondent ...
Samantha BeeSamantha Bee
Bee has been, well, a busy one, balancing her work between movies and TV. She's had roles in Woody Allen's 'Whatever Works,' and recently appeared on an episode of the HBO series 'Bored to Death.'
Rob CorrdryRob Corddry
Corddry's 2007 Fox sitcom, 'The Winner,' was short-lived, but he continues to show up everywhere, including in the role of Ari Fleischer in Oliver Stone's 'W.' Corrdry's brother, Nathan -- once a 'Daily Show' writer -- is now a regular on Showtime's 'United States of Tara.'

John HodgmanJohn Hodgman
Following the 'Daily Show,' Hodgman went all "PC" on us -- well, at least in those ubiquitious Apple commercials. He plays the "PC" guy, opposite Justin Long.
