Jon Stewart’s final episode of The Daily Show has proved to be a ratings success as well as a critical one. The send-off for the veteran host, which featured appearances from throngs of the show’s famous former correspondents and a pair of songs from Bruce Springsteen, was watched by 3.5 million viewers on Thursday night.
That number makes it the second-most viewed episode in the show’s history, narrowly missing out on the record set by then-Sen. Barack Obama in the waning days of his successful White House bid in 2008. That episode earned 3.6 million viewers.
