Tonight, Jon Stewart bids farewell to The Daily Show with an extended episode. Over the past 16 years, Stewart turned the parody of the nightly news into an influential source of political and news commentary which contributed greatly to Comedy Central’s growth. The ratings for the final episodes have been strong. Monday and Tuesday’s episodes garnered a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating. The best comparison is the final episode of TDS’s companion show The Colbert Report which earned a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating on December 18. The Daily Show finale is likely to outperform it. How well do you think it will do? Make your predictions.
