After the program announced his win, social media users bashed the 39-year-old on social media.
“Talk shows must suck. I stop watching them after [David] Letterman and J. Stewart were done,” one hater penned, while another said, “I guess the voters really love hearing jokes about trump for the hundredth time.”
A third individual described the win as “terrible,” while a fourth asked, “People still watch this?”
Despite many people slamming Noah, others were happy for the TV personality.
“I just know Seth and Jimmy are fuming,” a user claimed, as another penned, “Seth and Jimmy don’t be bitter challenge.”

He continued: “I told you we’d beat John Oliver if he wasn’t in our category. We did it, we got rid of John Oliver."
"This story has been so long, so crazy, so wonderful. I want to start by thanking the crazy Africans who followed me to this country, David Kibuuka and Joseph Opio, David Meyer, my partner in crime, the writers and the team, Roy Wood Jr. from the very beginning, Jordan Klepper, whose flight got canceled," he added.
"Thank you so much to the team, to everyone who gave us an opportunity, and honestly, the person I always thank because he’s a crazy genius for thinking of it, Jon Stewart. Wherever you are my friend, thank you for calling me up and asking me to come and join you on this crazy journey,” Noah concluded.
