Jon Stewart: 'Daily' Love for 'Chuck'

The Save "Chuck" campaign has picked up some unexpected support from... Jon Stewart?

The host of "The Daily Show" threw in a random plug for the NBC bubble show Tuesday night during a segment ripping House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over her knowledge of the Bush administration's torture activities.

"It’s good to know that Nancy Pelosi took torture as seriously as a ‘Don’t Cancel 'Chuck' petition," Stewart said, adding: "But seriously though, don’t cancel 'Chuck'.”

Video of the segment below, with the "Chuck" quip at the very end of the clip:
