The Daily Show does have a big UK audience, it's just that they have to watch what's provided to them on their terrestrial TV i.e. Channel 4. I know that on the Daily Show website there is a great archive where you can watch all their past shows, but that is inaccessible to UK internet users (without using internet proxies, etc.)
Also, as far as I know, the Daily Show has made quite a few pointed barbs at the monarchy and the UK =p They even have a 'UK Special Correspondent' Jamie Oliver. (Who coincidentally does a lot of comedy work with cricket satirist Andy Zaltzman)
