Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert Plunge in Repeats


TV Decoder reports that the writers’ strike has already delivered a nasty lashing to Comedy Central’s smirk-some duo, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.


Both ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ and ‘The Colbert Report’ with Stephen Colbert were forced into repeats on Nov. 5. Since then, in the demographic of viewers ages 25-to-54, ‘The Daily Show’ is down 35 percent and ‘The Colbert Report’ is down 28 percent versus the prior fourth quarter average.
