Jon Stewart’s ‘Daily Show’ Finale Is Second Most-Viewed Episode In Show’s History

7 August 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jon Stewart’s farewell helped his “Daily Show” capture some of the best viewership in the series’ history, with approximately 3.5 million viewers tuning in to see the witty host bid adieu to the program.

Last night’s fade was the second most-watched episode in the program’s tenure, according to “live plus same-day” Nielsen data released by Comedy Central on Friday afternoon. The most-watched “Daily Show” ever remains an October 29, 2008, episode during which Sen. Barack Obama paid Stewart a visit, which lured 3.577 million viewers overall. (See chart below, which illustrates that politics was the biggest ratings driver for the show over the years.)

An average of 1.8 million viewers between 18 and 49 (a 1.4 rating) watched the landmark episode, according to Nielsen, tying for the show’s second best rating ever — behind only a 1.7 rating for that October visit by Obama six days before his first presidential election.
