After getting pulled from the video-streaming site Hulu almost a year ago, "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and the "Colbert Report" are returning to the service, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Company Town blog.
The announcement of the shows’ return came with their reappearance on the site Wednesday, the story notes. While the shows were yanked from Hulu, they were available on their own Websites, TheDailyShow.com and ColbertNation.com, where they will continue to be available for streaming, the article says.
Viacom, which had pulled the shows after saying it wasn’t being adequately paid for the programs, didn’t disclose the terms of the deal, according to the piece.
According to the article, "Viacom also said that it would make available several other popular shows — including MTV’s hit ‘Jersey Shore’ and ‘Teen Mom 2, Comedy Central’s ‘Tosh.0’ and TVLand’s ‘Hot in Cleveland’ — to the Hulu Plus subscription service 21 days after each episode’s televised debut.
The story added, "More than 2,000 episodes of shows such as ‘Reno 911,’ the original ‘Beavis and Butt-Head,’ ‘Real World’ and ‘The Chappelle Show’ would also find their way from Viacom’s library to the Hulus Plus service, which costs users $7.99 per month
