Trevor Noah as Host of The Daily Show

In December 2014, Noah became a recurring contributor on The Daily Show. In March 2015, Comedy Central announced that Noah would succeed Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show; his tenure began on 28 September 2015.

After Noah took over from Stewart, viewership dropped 37%, and its Nielsen ratings fell below those of several other shows hosted by Daily Show alumni; however, according to Comedy Central’s president, the Daily Show under Noah was the number-one show for millennials.

 James Poniewozik of The New York Times praised him and the show’s writers, saying, “Mr. Noah’s debut was largely successful, it was also because of the operating system—the show’s writing—running under the surface”.

 Noah’s platform on the show has led to three stand-up specials on Comedy Central and Netflix.  By 2017, nightly viewership was less than half of what it had been during the end of Stewart’s tenure; viewership among millennials remained solid, however, and Comedy Central extended Noah’s contract as host of The Daily Show through 2022.
