Trevor’s summer hiatus will commence on Friday, June 18. The show will continue to produce exclusive brand content across its digital, social and podcast platforms the entire summer. The Daily Show has recently been recognized for its efforts with Adweek naming it the “Hottest Show on Social” and also received a record-setting 13 Webby awards this year including @TheDailyShow as a “Webby Winner in Social: Humor” category.
The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah was the first late night series to bring their fully remote show to linear television which started on Monday, March 23, 2020. The final remote episode will air this Thursday, June 17.

To date in 2021, The Daily Show is the #1 most-engaging late-night show with over 83M engagements, 1.4B views across platforms and 2.5B minutes consumed on YouTube. Recent viral highlights include:
Twitter War with Senator Cancun: On Twitter, the team replied to a tweet from Texas Senator Ted Cruz who was trying to debunk a recent segment where Trevor explained how the new US Census numbers affect states’ representation in the Federal government. The Twitter back and forth went throughout the day and into the evening, when Biden’s first 100 Days address to the nation was happening.
Klepper vs. Trump Supporters is the most-engaging Facebook video from a late night talk show with over 153M views across channels.
In the Awards space, The Daily Show is a 2021 Television Academy Honoree, a first ever win for the late night series.
