A late-night host will be on the job through 2022 after signing a major extension on his contract. Comedy Central today announced the extension for Trevor Noah, host of “The Daily Show.”
As part of the deal, Noah will produce and host year-end “Daily Show” specials in addition to his regular duties.
Kent Alterman, president of Comedy Central, made the announcement. “Trevor makes us look smart on a daily basis, and for that we’re grateful,” Alterman said.
The show is on track to finish the 2016-2017 season as the only daily late-night talk show to post year-over-year growth among both total viewers (+14%) and adults 18-49 (+6%), the network noted. The show also ranks as the most-engaging late-night series across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, according to the announcement.
