It's only been five weeks since John Stewart left The Daily Show and it returned to the air Sept. 28 with its new host Trevor Noah.

So how did he do?

Well, there was a lot of winking.

Pope Francis has left America behind, but surely he will not soon forget his six-day visit to America.

Washington D.C., New York and Philadelphia all got a chance to glimpse the Pontiff.

He was put on a pizza and recreated in dog form and even used to troll NYC.

He also made resigning Speaker of the House John Boehner cry.

But possibly nothing could prepare him for coming big hat to big hat with a baby dressed up in the robes of the supreme Holy See.

It looks like he loved it.

Bon voyage, Pope. See you later.

Madame Tassaud drove a wax statue of Pope Francis around and tricked New York.

While Pope Francis addressed Congress Sept. 24, New York City waited for his arrival. It was the perfect time to prank the Big Apple.

So, Madame Tassaud's drove around a new wax statue of the Pontiff in a convertible, leading to many turned heads, many selfies, many confused looks, many traffic snarls and at least one investigation by authorities.

Local news channel 6ABC has the story:

The wax figure of the pope was part of a publicity stunt for Madame Tassaud, which added it to its collection in advance of Pope Francis' visit to the United States. The company drove it around Midtown, hours before the pope's expected arrival.

Someone who saw the figure of the pope riding down Fifth Avenue was concerned, snapped a photo and sent it to the New York City Police Department.

Officers investigated and found that the pope wasn't really in the back of the white convertible, which hardly looked like the popemobile. The actual Pope Francis was addressing Congress at the time the replica was spotted in NYC.

No charges were filed in the incident, but Madame Tassaud personnel apologized to officers for not having a front license plate - a state motor vehicle violation.

One reporter even took a video of the goof.

This was on Columbus Avenue just now.

Sorry, New York. Not quite.

Hopefully you didn't confuse this pizza or these dogs with the real Pope either.

This is not the way to promote world peace.

Some poor, poor guy over at Gawker had his life's dreams put on hold when the Pope came to town. And he is surely not alone.

With the Pope's parade into America came enormous traffic blockages that put the kibosh on iPhone 6S deliveries. As the writer says:

The monstrous traffic congestion caused by the arrival of Pope Francis is expected to be so bad that UPS and Apple are already warning customers against the worst: missing the promised Friday arrival date of our new aluminum and glass idols. I received this email yesterday, and renounced my faith in the Catholic Church:

We know the Pope spreads an anti-capitalism message, but shouldn't it be one that doesn't involve the delay of new technology? Think of the children!

Well, we need our iPhones. How else are we supposed to use those cute little emojis that Twitter created for your visit?

iPhone owners wept.

Unfortunately, the video doesn't give the real reason for this epic meet up. However, it does say that the Harlem Globetrotters have actually met multiple Popes in the last 30 years.
