“I’m thrilled to be continuing this amazing journey with both fans of The Daily Show and Comedy Central,” Noah said in a statement. For his extension of term as the host of Daily Show means she is going to be covering the election of America come 2020. Since Trevor Noah has taken over the Daily Show, the audience numerical strength has grown globally. This was in 2015, and the show has grown exciting network.
Noah found his footing in the following months of his appointment. His audience has continued to expand after the initial post-Stewart ratings drop: Daily Show is the only daily late-night program to grow its viewership year over year in both total viewership and the key 18-49 demo, where it currently records a third place behind The Late Show and The Tonight Show. The show also just received its first Emmy win since Stewart left—for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series, in recognition of its “Between the Scenes” digital exclusives.
On Thursday, the President of Comedy Central signed another agreement with the comedian that he is going to be on the show till 2022. With this renewal, Comedy Central proves it’s happy with Noah’s work so far, and that it believes in his potential going forward. “It’s really exciting to renew this contract for either five more years, or until Kim Jong Un annihilates us all—whichever one comes first,” Noah joked.
