John Oliver may have joked about how it was weird that he was in the host’s seat for the first time on The Daily Show last night but it was pretty much business as usual for viewers. The long time correspondent’s debut Monday fronting the Comedy Central show pulled in 1.5 million viewers and got a 0.7 rating among Adults 18-49. That’s actually up from the 1.3 million viewers and 0.6 rating that Jon Stewart received on June 3. It’s also up from the 1.4 million and 0.6 rating that Stewart got on June 6, his last day as host before taking off until Labor Day to direct his first feature. Overall, Oliver’s results on Monday are on par with the series average this year. The lead-out The Colbert Report was also steady with its quarter-to-date with 1.2 million viewers and a 0.66 rating.
