Jon Stewart’s faceoff with CNBC’s Jim Cramer Thursday night gave “The Daily Show” its second biggest audience this year.
The media-hyped event was seen by 2.3 million total viewers on Comedy Central. That trails only the Inauguration Day episode of “The Daily Show” in 2009, which had 2.6 million viewers. The show was also in the top 10 in the show’s history.
Today, TheDailyShow.com posted its highest traffic day of 2009 and streamed more videos than on any other day so far this year.
