Oct 30, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Sen. Barack Obama’s appearance on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” last night was the program’s most-watched episode ever.
The episode attracted 3.6 million total viewers and a 2.6 household rating, besting its previous record—when Michelle Obama was a guest on Oct. 8—by 22%.
The half-hour also garnered 2.2 million viewers and a 2.0 rating among people ages 18-49.
“The Colbert Report” broke its previous record too, bringing in 2.4 million total viewers and a 1.8 household rating for the Oct. 29 episode.


  1. Mutually The president and Ahmadinejad are overwhelmed with uppity peasants. Obama considering the Tea Party. Ahmadinejad considering the Green Revolution it is absurd.
