The Daily Show: Ratings Soar Under Trevor Noah’s Watch


The Daily Show host Trevor Noah who recently bought an apartment for R130 million has reached another milestone in his career.

Under Trevor’s watch, February 2017 was The Daily Show’s most watched month after a year and a half in the job. Also, the Trump presidency appears to be the catalyst behind his ratings growth, with an average audience of 1.5 million viewers (including DVR replays).

The momentum at which the ratings have grown since Trump’s election is remarkable. The Daily Show with Trevor Noah has added viewers in each of the last three months, with particular strength in Comedy Central’s target demo of millennials under 35.

While the show’s percentage gains are not as dramatic as some other series in its category, it grew 17 percent compared to February 2016.

In addition to the aforementioned ratings, The Daily Show Host Trevor Noah has also garnered more social media love on the show. The American late-night show has picked up more followers on their social media channels. January saw the show add more followers on social media platforms including Twitter and Instagram than during any previous month.

This follows the news in October last year, that The Daily Show with Trevor Noah was the highest rated and most-watched, the daily late-night talk show in the US among millennial men (18-34, 18-24).

Evidently, Trevor appears to keep winning as his show is picking up steam from all angles. This is regardless of the fact that his show isn’t getting the sort of media coverage some of his rivals regularly receive.
