Trevor Noah will host 'The Daily Show' through 2022

Trevor Noah will host 'The Daily Show' through 2022”

"It's really exciting to renew this contract for either five more years or until Kim Jong Un annihilates us all-whichever one comes first".

Comedy Central notes that The Daily Show is the most-watched daily late-night talk show among millennial viewers. The network announced today that it's extended Noah's contract at the network through 2020, which includes his job hosting The Daily Show as well as year-end Daily Show specials starting this year: "The Daily Show will no longer take for granted that humankind has made it to another December 31st and from here on out will celebrate in annual year-end specials", the network explained.

A relative newcomer to "The Daily Show" who wasn't all that well known to US viewers, Noah was a controversial choice to succeed Stewart two years ago.

Comedy Central and Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, have agreed to a contract extension that keeps Noah on as host through 2022.

The transition was bumpy at times.

Noah, Steve Bodow, Jen Flanz and Jill Katz are the executive producers of The Daily Show.

In the current television season, "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" is averaging 1.5 million viewers, up 14% from the previous year, according to Nielsen.

Viacom CEO Bob Bakish went out of his way to praise Noah at an investor event earlier this week. "He now has the largest audience of millennials in late-night TV against everybody".

"We knew it would take him a while to find his voice in the show, just as it took Jon some time to transform the show from what it was under Craig Kilborn", Alterman said, attributing Noah's growth to an increased comfort with the inner workings of the show and the perspective that comes with living full time in the United States for several years. More-popular "Daily Show" disciples - Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee and John Oliver - left to host programs on other networks. Jon Stewart did not become Jon Stewart in one year. "Trevor is on a very good path", Mr. Bakish said. "The Opposition" is set to premiere on September 25.

Mr. Noah is the second late-night host to get a big vote of confidence from his bosses lately.
