Comedy Central has announced that The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah will lengthen its episodes to 45 minutes starting Monday, April 27th, and airing weeknights, Monday through Thursday at 11 pm ET/PT on Comedy Central.

The news of supersized episodes comes when viewers are tuning in to host Trevor Noah for a candid point of view and a source of trustworthy information.

During the past six weeks, Comedy Central and The Daily Show have seen success in significant linear ratings, digital gains, and highly sought-after bookings as audiences find comfort in comedy programming. Last week, Noah scored the first-ever late-night interview with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and on March 26th, Dr. Anthony Fauci chose The Daily Show for his first late-night appearance during the pandemic.

Other guests have included Bill Gates, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, and basketball star and philanthropist Steph Curry.
