Even as Viacom prepared to pull “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and “The Colbert Report” from Hulu last night at midnight, Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman was telling investors that the shows could eventually return, Multichannel News reports.

Speaking at the Credit Suisse Global Media & Communications Convergence Conference, Dauman said the Comedy Central shows could return if it became possible for the company to make more money off the site.

"In the current economic model, there is not that much in it for us to continue at this time," Dauman said, adding that, “If they can get to the point where the monetization model is better, then we may go back."


  1. It’s nice to see these multi-billion dollars companies continue to work toward ekeing out an extra dollar from an already struggling consumer base.

  2. Just refuse to pay. these media companies need to stop hurting the consumer. FCC will step in soon.
