Like all four of global standup sensation Jeff Dunham’s previous top-rated comedy specials, his latest horror-themed, Halloween-timed “Minding the Monsters” show scored high with TV viewers last Sunday, October 7th, on Comedy Central. Five million tuned in for its 9 PM premiere, with 100 percent of them watching the entire show, and another 2.5 million viewed its 10 PM repeat for a total of 7.5 million across the evening.
It was the second most-watched cable show of the night with all viewers 18-49 years old, #1 with males 18-34 and #2 with all viewers and men 18-24. It posted the best ratings of the year for a standup special on Comedy Central, and is the fifth most-viewed standup show for the network. Dunham now holds three of the top five most-viewed programs on Comedy Central with “Minding the Monsters,” “Controlled Chaos,” and “A Very Special Christmas Special.” The special also broke ratings records on Canada’s The Comedy Network by becoming the most watched broadcast this year for the channel with nearly half a million viewers.
