Overnights: Jon Stewart’s Daily Show Sheds Viewers From Previous Monday

Jon Stewart returned to The Daily Show anchor desk last night, and while viewership remained up relative to other nights of the week, there was a drop off from his most recent Monday episode.

Per Nielsen live-plus-same-day data, the June 10 Daily Show averaged 770,000 total viewers with 140,000 P18-49 at 11 p.m. That’s -2% and -5%, respectively, from Stewart’s June 3 episode, which drew the show’s largest live-plus-same-day audience in more than two months. While down from the previous Monday, last night’s episode still drew a larger live-plus-same-day audience than any Daily Show airing in April through May.

It’s also worth keeping in mind that last night’s Daily Show will see significant linear viewership growth once delayed-viewing data arrives in the coming days. After all, the aforementioned June 3 “Trump guilty verdict” episode saw its total audience nearly than double after live-plus-three-day data arrived (787,000 to 1,517,000 total viewers).

Stewart was joined on yesterday’s Daily Show by sports media personality Monica McNutt. The ESPN and MSG Network host gave her thoughts on the state of women’s basketball, with a focus on star WNBA rookie Caitlin Clark.

Daily Show contributor Jordan Klepper will host the Comedy Central program tonight through Thursday, June 13 at 11 p.m. ET/PT. This will mark Klepper’s fourth week sitting solo behind the Daily Show desk this year. He also co-hosted the week of April 23 with Ronny Chieng.
