Jon Stewart lost nearly 80% of his audience just five episodes into his Apple TV+ show "The Problem with Jon Stewart," according to a new report.

From Bloomberg, "Jon Stewart's Struggles Add to List of Streaming Talk Show Flops":
Last fall, about 180,000 U.S. homes saw the show’s first episode within the first seven days, according to the measurement firm Samba TV. By the fifth episode, which aired in early March, about 40,000 U.S. homes tuned in, down 78% from the season premiere. By comparison, an episode in March of HBO’s "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" was seen in 844,000 U.S. homes, Samba TV says.

Stewart declined to comment, though the magazine Entertainment Weekly said the show is the No. 1 unscripted series on Apple TV+, citing sources. To date, Apple hasn't disclosed any viewership numbers for Stewart's show, which since its debut has aired on a sporadic schedule. According to Parrot Analytics, Stewart's program is the eighth most in-demand talk show in the U.S., ahead of programs hosted by Ellen DeGeneres and James Corden and behind ones hosted by the likes of Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah.
His show is also getting weak interactions on social media when compared to his competitors.

It's hard to believe anyone wouldn't want to watch Mr. Leibowitz rant about the evils of white people.

The problem with Mr. Leibowitz is that he can no longer hide his atavistic hatred of white people.
