Viacom is Removing ‘The Daily Show’ and ‘The Colbert Report’ from HULU
Comedy Central and HULU were unable to agree on a price, and the shows are therefore being pulled from HULU. The actual numbers involved in the negotiation are unclear, but it is speculated that, in addition to receiving a portion of the ad revenue, Comedy Central wanted an upfront payment. This is a huge blow to HULU, as ‘The Daily Show’ and ‘The Colbert Report’ are two of the most watched shows on the site. Fear not, though. The shows will still be available on the Comedy Central site.
