Americans celebrate possible canning of Trevor Noah's Daily Show


Comedian and The Daily Show host Trevor Noah found himself on top of the trends list on Saturday morning after South Africans caught news of the possibility of his show being cancelled. Noah announced on Thursday that American direct broadcast satellite service provider, AT&T-Direct TV, was planning to drop Comedy Central and 22 other channels, a move that would directly affect his show.

He said in a video: “Hello, AT&T-Direct TV customers, my name is Trevor Noah from The Daily Show, and if you think government shutdowns are bad, get ready for something worse. AR&T-Direct TV might drop Comedy Central and up to 22 other Viacom channels. They’ll be shutting down your access to all-new episodes of your favourite shows, so take action.

Call the channel and let them know that you want Comedy Central so that you can watch Daily Show the way God intended it, that was too much, but I think they get it.
