The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah will now air on Comedy Central
Since The Daily Show with Trevor Noah‘s broadcast hiatus last Monday, Trevor Noah has been posting his opening monologues from home through Youtube as a way to continue to connect with the show’s audience during the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 18, Noah along with The Daily Show‘s production team have decided to launch a digital version of their show called The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah, where it continues to have its videos and graphics.
Now, after three uploaded episodes, Deadline brings word that The Daily Social Distancing Show will now be making its broadcast debut on Comedy Central, beginning today, March 23 which will take up the show’s original 11 PM timeslot. This news comes on the heels of TBS’s late-night talk show Conan announcing their broadcast return last week.
So far, The Daily Social Distancing Show has been success, with the digital series amassing 3+ million viewers per episode within 24 hours of release on YouTube alone. The first three episodes varied in length between 12-18 minutes where it also featured celebrity interviews and correspondents with Noah also creating a donation drive for charities like No to Kid Hungry which currently raised over $139,000.
The Daily Show will be the first late-night talk show to return on air followed by Conan as other late-night shows including The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live! are still on indefinite hiatus but are doing their best to continue communicating with the audience by filming their daily monologues at home.
