Skip to comments.New Media Fail: 'Daily Show' Less Popular Online Than 'Platetopper'

By simple reporting and exposing their dismal numbers, Big Hollywood has completely obliterated the ongoing media myth and charade that "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" represent some kind of populist phenomenon.
The media elite love their fellow elites Colbert and Stewart and so the media elite create a phony reality that claims that both of these left-wing, speech policing, Obama Palace Guards are, you know, actually popular. When the truth is that they're regularly beaten by cartoons, reruns, and "Robot Chicken."
Now, it appears as though the last refuge of "Daily Show" defenders have switched the argument to something along the lines of, "But-but-but Stewart and Colbert's populist popularity is mostly online!"
Fair enough. Let's take a look at those numbers, shall we?
Everyday, "The Daily Show" breaks individual episodes up into six or seven separate videos and publishes them here. Thankfully, for my purpose at least, they also publish the number of views each video receives.
Between April 11 and today, "The Daily Show" posted 14 videos. As of this writing, those 14 videos have received a total of 747,819 views -- or statistically zero when compared to our country's population. Or still not enough views to raise the dismal cable ratings to anything approaching the numbers a 2009 rerun of "Family Guy" receives.
