After the initial surge in viewership when he took over from Jon Steward, ratings are said to have decreased, so much so that an online survey by Slate.com is asking ‘Why are Americans Ignoring Trevor Noah?’.

According to the survey, some viewers have said they find the South African comedian “distant”, and that his jokes lack the “outraged advocacy” that made Steward so popular with the public.

So, is Trevor just too nice? Does he need to turn it up a notch to get Americans to love him?
