Comedy Central to offer Stewart, Colbert on Hulu

Reuters reports that Viacom Inc's Comedy Central will begin to offer full episodes of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and the "Colbert Report" on Hulu.com as part of a test, reversing an earlier position that it would mainly focus on offering its shows on its own sites. The deal to offer these popular shows on Hulu could lead to other Viacom content on the online video service, co-owned by General Electric's NBC Universal and News Corp. Comedy Central's two most popular shows also will be available in full-length on ComedyCentral.com, Erik Flannigan, executive VP-digital media at MTV Networks said. Previously, only clips of the skits were available. Comedy Central will receive a percentage of ad sales sold by Hulu.
