This could mean the end of one of the most watched and beloved parody news shows for AT&T-DIRECTV customers.

The South African superstar comedian has made a plea on his Twitter page calling on his fans to show their support for the show not to be taken off the air.

Noah took over from the legendary Jon Stewart as the host of the last-night comedy show in 2015 and has won various awards for his work on the show including Primetime Emmy Award.
