After a rocky first year,  February was “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah’s” most-watched and highest-rated month ever among total viewers (1.5 million total viewers) and Adults 18-49 (0.74 rating, up +11 percent). “The Daily Show” continues to dominate among Comedy Central’s key core, millennial audience, finishing February as the most-watched and highest-rated daily late night talk show among all millennials.

Among daily late night talk shows, “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” is the only series to record year-over-year growth among both total viewers and adults 18-49, both for February and the current quarter, Comedy Central says.

“The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” also continues to succeed and grow digitally and socially, exemplifying the true multiplatform nature of the series and how it connects with Comedy Central’s target millennial audience. Digital viewing in February was up 42 percent versus over a year ago, and “The Daily Show” was the most engaging show among the daily late night competitive set on social platforms in February, generating the highest engagement with over 6 million total actions, according to  Shareablee.

Host Noah’s global resonance is growing with international ratings up +22 percent year-over-year since the election, led by strong increases in the UK, Belgium, Norway and Sweden.
