Stephen Colbert has snapped Jon Stewart's decade-long winning streak at the Emmys.

The Colbert Report topped The Daily Show in the Best Variety Show category at the awards ceremony in Los Angeles.

The last time The Daily Show lost the category was in 2002.

Colbert was a contributor to The Daily Show before leaving to front his own program.
