Comedy Central: Most-watched summer ever

Posted on

Comedy Central has reason to crow these days: Thanks to shows like The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Tosh.O, the cable network posted record ratings among young adults and men for the months of July and August. The network was also No. 1 in cable this summer among men 18-34 and men 18-24.

Tosh.0 was the most-watched series in all of TV on Wednesdays with men 18-34 and men 18-24, while the return of Futurama and the Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff helped the network earn double-digit increases among adults 18-49 (up 25%), adults 18-34 (up 35%), men 18-34 (up 37%) and men 18-24 (up 27%) versus the same period last year.

Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report also posted their highest-rated summers ever among total viewers, adults, and men.
