I do not believe The Daily Show is ever aired live anywhere. It's taped at around 5:30-6:00PM Eastern.

 

Comedy Central has a replay of the previous night's episode at 7:30PM Eastern.

Even if the show was shown live at 7:30 PM, that is up to Comedy Central, not U-Verse or Direct TV. Comedy Central does the scheduling. U-Verse shows what Comedy Central transmits.

What time zone are you in?

 

Looking at the Comedy Central schedule, at 7:30 pm Eastern, they air the Daily Show from the previous evening.

 

New episodes air at 11 pm eastern.

From Wikipedia:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Daily_Show

 

Production

The show's writers begin each day with a morning meeting where they review material that researchers have gathered from major newspapers, the Associated Press, cable news television channels and websites, and discuss headline material for the lead news segment. Throughout the morning they work on writing deadline pieces inspired by recent news, as well as longer-term projects. By lunchtime, Stewart—who describes his role as that of a managing editor[34]—has begun to review headline jokes. The script is submitted by 3 pm, and at 4:15 there is a rehearsal. An hour is left for rewrites before a 6 pm taping in front of a live studio audience.[6][22] While the studio capacity is limited, tickets to attend tapings are free and can be obtained if requested far enough in advance.[35]

The Daily Show typically tapes four new episodes a week, Monday through Thursday, forty-two weeks a year.[36] The show is broadcast at 11 PM Eastern/10 PM Central, a time when local television stations show their news reports and about half an hour before most other late-night comedy programs begin to go on the air. The program is rerun several times the next day, including a 7:30 PM Eastern/6:30 PM Central prime time broadcast.

 

To the original poster: notice that all references are to taped programming, none of it live. The only time the word "live" is mentioned is in reference to the fact that the show is taped in front of a live audience.

 

The article indicates, as previous posters have, that the show is rerun at 7:30 PM Eastern Time.
