Trevor Noah may have found some well-received moments on The Daily Show, but he is not out of the red yet. Ratings for the show may have leveled off in January, but they are still low. Worst of all, they are much lower than when John Stewart held the reins.

According to Showbuzz, Trevor Noah’s The Daily Show landed at No. 28 when it came to original cable television newscasts, as he attracted only 882,000 viewers and only 360,000 in the 18-49 age range on Monday night. Last Thursday, he attracted 768,000 viewers, with 310,000 in the 18-49 range. However, the night before, Mr. Noah helped attract about one million viewers with approximately 440,000 in the 18-49 range.

Talk radio station 89.3 KPCC recently wrote an article about why Trevor Noah still hasn’t found his groove.

“But four months into Trevor Noah’s tenure, his ratings have dropped more steeply than expected, and they have yet to climb back anywhere near the ratings of ‘The Daily Show’ of old,” claimed John Horn, who adds that even the election cycle hasn’t helped Trevor Noah and the show find its way into the center of the cultural conversation.
