Overnights: Jon Stewart’s Daily Show Gains Significant Number of P18-49 Viewers

Jon Stewart returned to his Monday Daily Show perch last night, and as one might expect, viewership was up substantially from his most recent Daily Show hosting stint on Thursday, May 9.

Per Nielsen live-plus-same-day data, the Stewart-led Monday, May 13 Daily Show averaged 690,000 total viewers and 170,000 P18-49 viewers at 11 p.m. ET. When citing live-plus-same-day data, Stewart’s May 13 episode is +50% in total viewers, and +102% in P18-49 viewers from last Thursday’s Stewart-led episode. The May 13 episode also grew by +1% in total viewers and +8% in P18-49 viewers from Stewart’s most recent Monday episode (April 22).

The May 13 Daily Show‘s 170,000 P18-49 average represents Stewart’s largest live-plus-same-day audience in the demo in two months (since his Monday, March 11 episode), while the 690,000 total viewers average represents Stewart’s largest total live-plus-same-day audience in a month (since his Monday, April 15 episode).

It’s also worth keeping in mind that The Daily Show‘s May 13 episode will see a significant linear viewership bump once time-shifted data arrives in the coming days.

Comedienne and actress Ilana Glazer was Stewart’s guest last night on The Daily Show.
