'The Daily Show' with Trevor Noah contract renewed
Last week Trevor Noah pleaded to the "The Daily Show" fans to save the show from being canned.
Taking to Twitter, Noah posted a video with the caption: "AT&T-DIRECTV is about to drop Comedy Central and up to 22 other channels.
If that happens, you won’t be able to watch The Daily Show with me! Call 888-250-5557 and tell AT&T-DIRECTV to keep Comedy Central. Go to (link: http://keepviacom.com) keepviacom.com for more info. #keepviacom".

Asking fans to call and visit the website in an attempt to save Comedy Central along with the other 22 channels form being canned form AT&T Direct and it seems to have worked.
The official Viacom Twitter page posted on Monday that a deal had been struck between AT&T Direct and Viacom. Stating that their contract has been renewed and that Viacom services will continue to be available on AT&T platforms & products.
We're pleased to announce a renewed Viacom-AT&T contract with continued carriage of Viacom services across multiple AT&T platforms & products. The deal brings AT&T customers more choice & improved value for Viacom content. We expect to share more details in the near future.— Viacom (@Viacom) March 25, 2019
While Trevor's Daily Show rein continues, the initial reaction to the possibility of the show being canned created a Twitter divide as some where for his exit, while others supported his call to action.

I have never watched you or Comedy Central - and I have no interest to start now. I'm glad they are eliminating the Lowest Rated 22 channels. We wish you the best 😭😭😭— US Veteran (@USVeteran4Truth) March 24, 2019
