Comedy Central’s hotly anticipated premiere Monday night of “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” drew a younger crowd — and a larger one — than the show typically reached during Jon Stewart’s long tenure.
The cable channel reported that the premiere “scored a total reach of 7.5 million viewers across its simulcast of Viacom Media Networks brands. On Comedy Central, ratings among Adults 18-34 soared by 41% and the show’s median age dropped by six years (46).”
“The premiere also drew its third-largest Live + Same Day gross average audience in the series’ storied history [Monday] night with 3.7 million total viewers tuning in across the night,” Comedy Central adds. “In addition, the premiere of ‘The Daily Show with Trevor Noah’ was the #1 series on Nielsen Social Guide for the day ranked on Unique Audience among all non-sports programming.

The guest list for the rest of premiere week features Gov. Chris Christie (Wednesday, Sept. 30) and Ryan Adams (Oct. 1).
