Jeff Dunham Show sets ratings records for Comedy Central
Last year ventriloquist Jeff Dunham’s Christmas special set ratings records for Comedy Central. Last night he did it again with the debut of The Jeff Dunham Show which averaged 5.3 million viewers and the most-watched series premiere in Comedy Central’s history.
The show also posted records for a Comedy Central series premiere in adults 18-49 (a 2.6 rating rating, but I’m checking to see whether that’s just a coverage rating, if so, it could drop down to ~2.2 when compared with the overall TV audience).
Another 2.6 million average audience watched the encore of the show to bring the night’s total to 7.9 million.
