New York, April 27, 2020 - As The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah enters its sixth week of hugely successful remote shows, Comedy Central's stalwart late-night franchise announces an unprecedented format shift. For the first time in its 24-year history, The Daily Show will lengthen its episodes to 45 minutes starting tonight, Monday, April 27th and airing weeknights, Monday through Thursday at 11pm ET/PT on Comedy Central.

The news of supersized Daily Show episodes comes at a moment in time when viewers are heading to host Trevor Noah, not just for satire and escapism, but also for an honest point of view and as a source of trustworthy information. Continuing to build on its prior momentum, Comedy Central and The Daily Show have seen significant linear ratings success, digital gains and highly sought-after bookings as audiences find comfort in comedy programming. Last week, Noah scored New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's first ever late-night interview and on March 26th, Dr. Anthony Fauci chose The Daily Show for his first late-night appearance during the pandemic. Together, the interviews have garnered more than 43M views across channels! Additional show highlights include:

#1 late-night show with young viewers P18-34 and young men M18-34

#1 most-engaging late-night show

1.4B views in 2020, up +56% year-over-year

Comedy Central is #1 Total Day Cable Network with M18-34 in 2020

In addition to the aforementioned illustrious guests, Noah has spoken with a highly impressive lineup of critical voices since The Daily Social Distancing Show's launch: co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Bill Gates; Governors Phil Murphy (D-NJ), Gavin Newsom (D-CA) and Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI); NASA Astronaut Christina Koch; Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot; 3x NBA Champion/2x MVP/6x All-Star Stephen Curry; 5x NBA All-Star & Mental Health Advocate Kevin Love; Grammy Award-Winning Artists Babyface (11x) & Teddy Riley (2x); Golden Globe Award-Winning Actress Jennifer Garner; author and activist Roxane Gay; President of the Ford Foundation Darren Walker; Founder and CEO of RISE Amanda Nguyen and more.

Each night on The Daily Social Distancing Show, Noah suggests charities for his viewers to donate. The call to action has helped the show raise more than half a million dollars to support those directly affected by the COVID pandemic: City Harvest, No Kid Hungry, Feeding America, #SaveWithStories via Save The Children, NYC Mayor's Fund for First Responders and #FirstRespondersFirst.

In addition to The Daily Social Distancing Show, the show has continued to have a strong presence on its uber popular and super engaged social and digital platforms creating viral content including the tribute to the Heroes of the Pandumbic, which has generated over 27M views across all channels; Trump's Blame Game; When You're Inspired By Italy But Live In New York; Some People just don't get it... ; Fox News Is Very Concerned About This Presidential Candidate's Brain and more.
