Stewart is set to host HBO's upcoming "Night of Too Many Stars", and was asked about the networks decision to yank comedian Louis C.K. from the lineup.
"You give your friends the benefit of the doubt", Stewart told Today'sMatt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie. "Could I have done more?' In this situation, I think we all could have".
"I try to think of it in terms of, I've had friends who have had compulsions and have done things, gambling or drinking and drugs, and we've lost some of them, some of them have died", Stewartsaid.
Stewart noted that the comedy environment has never been kind to women, despite some changes over the years. It's gotten better over the years, but certainly when we started 30 years ago, it was really hard.
In the report, multiple women alleged sexual misconduct against the comedian, allegations that Louis C.K. later confirmed were true.
The New York Times report about Louis C.K. caused a videotaped interaction between Stewart and a University of Chicago student from a year ago to resurface.

John Oliver kicked off the fourth season finale of his talk show Last Week Tonight with a "lightning recap of the week", which included a jab at Louis C.K, the latest in a string of men in Hollywood to be accused of sexual misconduct.

"I'm not that connected to that world". I don't know what you're talking about....
Though it's a little unclear, Stewart then suggests that he and his team looked into the allegations at that point but that "we were all assured, no, and we took somebody's word for it, and maybe that's an error on our part".
Distributors in Scandinavia (Sweden's Nonstop Entertainment), France (ARP Selection) Israel (Shoval Film) and the Middle East (the Dubai-based Front Row Filmed Entertainment) have canceled plans to release Louis C.K.'s I Love You, Daddy in their territories, The Hollywood Reporter, and Variety and ScreenDaily report.
