Chrome cast fail 2/5
Not supporting chrome cast in the version. Says connected but not working.
Commercial Volume is LOUD!!!! 1/5
Goodness gracious is the commercial volume like 2x the volume of the TV show. IT IS CRAZY LOUD. Protect your ears and just skip watching Comedy Central. OH, AM I TALKING TOO LOUD? THATS BECAUSE comedy central HURT MY EARS.
Fix your intentional show volume to commercial volume and I will fix my review.

App crashes when streaming from phone 1/5
Proper airplay support 1/5
Not that hard
No casting here 2/5
I've tried multiple times to cast a show to my tv, but it never works.
Keeps dropping Chomecast 1/5
This app is terrible if you are trying to steam a show. It will connect to our TV - but won't actually steam any of the shows to the TV. I've deleted and re-installed it multiple times - same problem. All I want to do is watch the Daily Show, but this stupid app refuses to work.
This app is a joke. 2/5
I can't watch a whole episode of Broad City. I'm casting from my iPhone 7 to my chrome cast. It plays a little bit of the show and then completely cuts off. And when I try to play the show where I left off it restarts the episode and I end up watching tons more ads. Then it glitches out where the shows playing on the TV but my phone says it's playing ads and I can't choose the part of the episode I want to watch. Because the time bar is gone. Keeps closing because of content errors.
Would be great if chromecast worked 1/5
App stops casting like every 5 minutes on Chromecast and won’t reconnect without disconnecting and restarting the app a bunch of times.
Super buggy w Chromecast - can't finish an episode 1/5
App now freezes within 10 minutes of viewing. Even when it worked the amount of ads was over the top compared to other cable channel apps.
Comedy Central content is great. Their app is garbage. 1/5
By Jon Red
Every time you move the slider, you get a two minutes of ads. That's in addition to the two minute add breaks built in to each show. Okay so don't move the slider, except you have to when the app loses connection to Chromecast which is often. It will not gracefully reconnect like every other Chromecast app. Also you will randomly get "content errors" that straight prevent you from watching anything for upwards of an hour at a time. If you contact support, you won't get a response for 3 days AT LEAST. Don't buy the "developer responses" you see, you won't get a response from that e-mail address for ages. I'm telling you, this app is poorly implemented garbage.
In summary: It's glitchy, lacks functionality provided by every other chromecast app, randomly just breaks and is poorly supported. Dear Comedy Central: DO BETTER.
Chromecast Incompatible, Very Buggy 3/5
The latest version of the CC app is very buggy and won't operate with my Chromecast at all anymore. When I finally got a video to stream (after four attempts and a reboot of my Chromecast), it only played for 10 minutes before crashing. The app hasn't been updated since May… may want to get on that in preparation for iOS11, huh?
Ads are 4x louder than the show your watching, causing you to have to mute commercials because they COULD NOT GET ANY LOUDER
UPDATE: Issue still not fixed months later. A very simple fix and the developer provides a canned response.
The content is fine and the app works well. Just fix the commercials. I'll just mute them until its fixed but I have a feeling it never will be.
Apple TV app freezes up 2/5
The Apple TV app freezes up and plays an endless loop of commercials. The iPad app keeps locking up as well during comercials
This app is awful, just like the Apple TV version… 1/5
This app is horrendous, it crashes constantly. The Apple TV version will play the same commercial three times in a row but won’t show you the episode of the show you were trying to watch, just keeps looping the commercials. Then it will eventually load to a later episode that you don’t want to see. Not sure how they’re OK with the app being as bad as it is but I have decided to stop watching Comedy Central shows as it is too frustrating, there is easier stuff to watch on Hulu and Netflix.
Would give 5 stars if it worked 1/5
I had this app for a year and it worked really well. The app now stops playing video after roughly 10 seconds of streaming. Every single show. Can't get more than seconds in without the video just crashing. I have updated and refreshed and reloaded and reset every factor involved in my wifi and streaming - even reinstalled apps and such, checked login info etc., this app is the only app I have that does. Quite annoying
Comedy Central 1/5
I'm trying to watch Broad City, but the show stops then re-starts over and over again. I've downloaded the app on my iPad and phone but still the same issue. App is useless.
App crashing 1/5
App doesn't open for me :/
Too many, too loud ads 2/5
Ads often exceed a minute. And the volume increases noticeably. Very annoying. Looking for other ways to watch The Daily show when I miss it. Others made a similar complaint, but their "reply" did not address the issue. There is a Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation act for TV. We need the same for apps.
Won't cast 1/5
Keeps cutting out when casting to chrome. To recast you have to watch all the ads over again. The scrubber is buggy and makes for finding the last spot you left off like a game of roulette.
Awful UI - had to sign in around 15 times, wouldn't load etc. try again.
Chromecast doesn't work 1/5
Developers, please stop with the same cookie cutter response and look at all the people complaining about chromecast issues... clearly these aren't isolated incidents. Just say it's a known issue, and that you're working on fixing it. It doesn't work at all.
Keeps dropping when chromecasting 2/5
I use the app to chromecast and it consistently drops the show mid watching. At first, I thought it was the connection but no other app does this while I'm streaming. When it does work, the ads are incredibly loud and the show is quiet. It's really awful if you're not ready to mute the ads (which means the ads aren't getting watched or noticed because I just have to mute them).
Good content but always crashes 2/5
By Stick art lady
Good content and works okay if you only watch on your device. Don't stream through chromecast or it will crash in the middle of shows with no warning them never come back.
Crashes all the time 1/5
Terrible, crashes constantly, especially when casting to Chromecast.
doesn't work with chromecast 2/5
this app isn't working with chromecast????
and it's very frustrating
Chromecast Bug Causes Content Crash 2/5
Within the past few weeks you all have updated the app a couple times, but now there is a new bug in app that is causing any content being played from the Comedy Central app to crash, once it is being casted to a Google Chromecast.
Now, I can't speak for everyone but I know the ONLY reason I use this app is because I prefer to have its content casted to my TV vs. viewing it from my phone screen. (As I'm sure you can imagine, the former is more convenient.)
So you all could fix this bug during the next update, that'd be great! In the meantime, I won't be using this application.
doesn't resume correctly 2/5
after commercial doesn't resume where it left off
Shows ads NOT shows 1/5
Downloaded app for
Apple TV registered via cable company. App will only play ad at the front of shows. Show will not load.
Best App On Planet Earth 5/5
Streams with a high degree of reliability. This app has truly changed my life. Thank CC!❤️
Chrome Crash 1/5
By pink cow photography
I've had great luck with this app in the past but right now I'm trying to cast The Broad City premiere to my TV with Chromcast and it keeps crashing. Normally I don't write reviews, but after the 5th time this happened the app asked me if I wanted to rate it and I'm irritated enough that I'm writing one. Fix you **** Comedy Central.
Broken when used with Chromecast 1/5
Will rate higher when Chromecast functionality is fixed. I know the developer will just comment and say to email customer service, but seeing as how many people are experiencing the same problems, it sounds like something the developer needs to fix in their app.
Don't Try to Watch with Chromecast 2/5
By Crafty Teacher Mom
Lovely app if you want to put your face in the phone but not if you'd like to cast to your TV. App stops loading the show or just shows static Comedy Central ads on the Chromecast. Please don't reply saying I should email Comedy Central Support-just fix the issue!
This app has proven to be a complete joke. I have been unsuccessfully attempting to get through a 21 minute episode of Broad City for the past 61 minutes. It got so bad that we made it through 75% of the episode and then it inexplicable shut off. Unless you love watching a dark screen for 60+ minutes, do not use this app.
Stop auto-playing episodes in reverse order! 3/5
It is super annoying. i.e. After watching season X episode 2 of a show, I want to watch season X episode 3 NOT episode 1.
Most other apps I use play episodes in the proper order. Please fix this. Thanks.
Use to work well... 1/5
Lately the advertising/commercials during shows will cause the shows to skip to an older episode or get stuck in a cycle of advertisements entirely. Latest episodes won't load or crash when an ad is supposed to play also. Whatever automated advertising system is in place has broken the app.
Total bust with chromcast 1/5
By Subway Employee
Couldn't even watch a full episode using my chromecast. Pausing, disconnecting constantly. Total breakdown when it came to commercial breaks. I have a lot of patience when it comes to apps connecting here since I get that it's not always the app's main priority to connect in this way, but it was completely unmanageable. Hopefully they work out the kinks. Be prepared for frustration if you want to cast through this app.
Needs work 1/5
This app is trash. Won't play on Chromecast. And new episodes don't upload right after they air.
Potential to be a good app, but too many technical difficulties 2/5
This app hasn't worked for my chromecast in over a week. I've rebooted my chromecast a handful of times, deleted the app, restarted my phone. The show starts playing for a minute and immediately stops flashing an error message that I can't read because it disappears way too fast. All of the other apps that I stream from work fine. Just ComedyCentral where I can't stream from. Also, commercials are BLARING... what's that about?
Couldn't even get through an episode 1/5
Chromecast feature is so buggy that I couldn't even get through an entire 20 minute show without it cutting out and disconnecting from Chromecast multiple times.
Commercials load like a champ! 1/5
By Chief KK
Nothing else likes to load very well. Plus the commercials are easily 3 times louder than the content when the content finally does load.
Chromecast Errors 4/5
Hey CC, ever since you dropped Hulu I've been watching The Daily Show via your app and my Chromecast; it used to work no problem, but lately it will play the first 2-3.5 minutes of the program and then just...not. I can watch the show on my phone without casting just fine. And I can cast from HBO, Netflix, and Hulu just fine. But I cannot effectively Chromecast from the CC app anymore. Can you please look into this? Sidebar: Yay South Park's back!
ALWAYS BROKEN WITH CHROMECAST 1/5
By Alex Iravani
***UPDATED - Hey Comedy Central! (or Isobar or whatever agency is behind this cr-app creation), NO ONE is going email your tech support!! There are LITERALLY 100 other reviews below mine outlining the same thing!! Don't you guys think you should maybe fix an app so buggy it can't run on anyone's chromecast, or several brand new iPhone 7s? This is a PATHETIC response. I hope Trevor Noah rips your agency apart on the Daily Show.***
I Have a brand new iPhone 7 and so does my girlfriend, this app has issues casting ALL the time, super buggy, skips around, never ever works. Thumbs down on this app. Get it working so we can watch the daily show!!!!
Perfect App for the traveler. 5/5
I enjoy this app... I get caught up on my show (The Daily Show) and having access to all the clips is the Best... We can do w/o all the commercials. Yet I understand the sponsorship is needed. Overall it's a great App!! 👌😎
I like 4/5
The app is fairly great but sometimes it does have trouble loading videos
Great app I can watch all my favorite shows for free 5/5
I love this app because I've been looking for a free way to stream all of my favorite shows and I've finally found it for free!
I used to love this app 1/5
I used to love this app and listen to it daily. It had so many problems, including always logging me out, that I finally just stopped using it. It has been well over a year. I just tried again and it won't even let me log in! I also agree with other about the volume issue between the show and commercials. I am hard of hearing, since birth, and the commercial volume is set quite loud. The show itself is set too low, please set it up if you do nothing else with the commercials, at least almost as high as they are so we can hear what they are saying. I believe I've posted before and I'm not the only one that said this, we would pay the fee for the no commercials. And perhaps work on the app about logging in issues? A year seems to be plenty of time to work these kind of kinks out, no?
I love it
Love it!!! 5/5
By Blue butterballs
Comedy Central is my favorite app! I watch Comedy Central all the time and when I'm in bed under the covers sometimes I watch on my app too! It's the one app that's guaranteed to put a smile on my face. Can't beat that!
I love this app
Difficult and confusing UI 2/5
By Played Hunter
UI = user interface
Edit- they get another star for contacting me about my complaint.
