Not-so Daily Show

More4 drops nightly editions

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is to become the weekly show in the UK.

From next month, More 4 is to drop its nightly 8.30pm showing of the satirical show, instead airing the compilation Global Edition on Monday nights only.

The show, whose correspondents include British stand-up John Oliver, has been a staple of More 4’s schedules since it launched in 2005.

The Global Edition is compiled for international broadcasters – including CNN – with Stewart adding a new introductory monologue. At present, More 4 airs this edition on Monday with new episodes on Tuesday to Friday, one day after they have been broadcast on America’s Comedy Central.

The Daily Show attracts an average of around 75,000 viewers in Britain.
