Jon Stewart seems just a bit resentful towards Apple for canceling his show.

Ahead of his return to The Daily Show tonight, Jon Stewart is doing the usual press rounds. And on CBS Mornings, he briefly touched on Apple’s abrupt cancellation of The Problem last year.

“I very much wanted to have some kind of place to unload thoughts as we get into this election season. And I thought I was going to do it over at, they call it Apple TV Plus,” he said before joking about the service’s popularity. “It’s a televison enclave. Very small. It’s like living in Malibu. But they decided that they felt that they didn’t want me to say things that might get me in trouble.”

In October, The New York Times reported that Apple’s decision partly stemmed from Stewart’s plans to cover topics including artificial intelligence and China in the show’s now-scrapped third season.
