Overnights: Jon Stewart’s Daily Show Earns Largest Live-Plus-Same-Day Audience Since April 15

Monday night’s Daily Show saw Jon Stewart attract his largest live-plus-same-day audience in more than a month.

Per Nielsen live-plus-same-day data, Monday’s Stewart-led Daily Show episode averaged 697,000 total viewers and 152,000 P18-49 viewers at 11 p.m. ET. Comparing live-plus-same-day data, that’s up +1% in total viewers, but -11% in P18-49 viewers from his most recent Daily Show episode (May 13, 2024).

It’s also worth keeping in mind that The Daily Show‘s May 20 episode will see a significant linear viewership bump once time-shifted data arrives in the coming days.

Chairperson of the Commission on Presidential Debates co-founder and co-chair Frank Fahrenkopf was Stewart’s guest last night on The Daily Show. Fahrenkopf’s appearance was a newsy one, having come on the heels of news last week that both President Biden and former President Trump had agreed to face-off at two presidential debates that would be held outside the purview of his organization, bucking a longtime presidential campaign tradition.

Daily Show correspondent Michael Kosta will host the Tuesday, May 21 – Thursday, May 23 episodes at 11 p.m.
