These 5 points on John Stewart and the Daily show by a stat guy from Fivethirtyeight.
1. his viewership has been way down over the past 4 years. Like 50% down. Kimmel has been steady.
2. He continuously gets crushed in overall ratings by almost all others. He does well with 18-49, but Fallon crushes him here too.
3. The median age of his audience has been getting older over the decade as television has grayed. Most of his viewers are over 40.
4. Stewart's audience looks like something the New Yorker or the Times cooked up. It matches them on liberalness/wealth (and it's wealthy).
5.O'Reilly actually has more self identified Democrats watching his show regularly than Stewart has Republicans watching his show.
