In case you missed the 67th annual Prime-Time Emmy Awards on Fox Sunday night, you didn’t miss much.

With all the competition from Netflix, Amazon and other online services, the 2014-15 was one of the best TV seasons ever. And the Fox telecast hosted by comedian Andy Samberg was perhaps the worst, or at least the raunchiest with references to porn and oral sex in the first hour.

If you stayed around for the end, the best moments came in the final hour:

--Comedian Tracy Morgan walking on stage 15 months after the New Jersey traffic accident which took life of his friend James McNair, to present the best drama award to HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the big winner Sunday night. (See full list below)

--Viola Davis (ABC’s “How To Get Away With Murder”) quoting former slave Harriet Tubman after becoming the first African-American woman to win the drama best actress award. She also said:  “Let me tell you something: the only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity. You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there.”

If you’re recording Jon Stewart’s last “The Daily Show” at 11 p.m. Thursday, set the DVR for an hour. Comedy Central’s schedule plans for at least a 50-minute farewell for Stewart, who’s leaving the show after 16 years.

Before Stewart says goodbye, Comedy Central will air a 12-hour marathon Thursday, starting with a repeat of Monday’s show with Amy Schumer (10:28 a.m. Thursday) and Tuesday’s show with Denis Leary (11:01 a.m.).

The reruns shows with Steve Carell (1:17 p.m.), Newt Gingrich (4:38 p.m.), Bill O’Reilly (5:38 p.m.), President Barack Obama (7:20 p.m.) and a special called “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart: News Your Own Adventure” (8:56 p.m.).

Call him a comedian, call him a political satirist, call him an unabashed liberal. But to me, Jon Stewart is arguably the most influential comedian of our time.

Stewart leaves “The Daily Show” (11 p.m., Comedy Central) Thursday after 16 years with 19 Emmys for his blistering satires and holding politicians accountable. He turned a late-night comedy show originally hosted by former ESPN anchor Craig Kilborn (1996-98) into Must See TV, skewering politicians on the right and left. He wasn’t afraid to argue with President Barack Obama, members of congress or political commentators.

Here’s his final guest list:
