UPDATE: A few hours after I originally posted, I came across this article. Seems that Comedy Central was none too happy about their Daily Show audience being portrayed as a bunch of “stoned slackers” by Bill O’Reilly. No surprise here:
Viewers of Jon Stewart’s show are more likely to have completed four years of college than people who watch “The O’Reilly Factor,” according to Nielsen Media Research.
And then there’s this gem:
Comedy Central had no statistics on how many people watch “The Daily Show” stoned.
