It’s been almost a year since a squabble between Viacom and Hulu ended up with Comedy Central’s one-two punch of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report being pulled from the online video site. But now the two sides have reached an accord that will bring both of these shows, along with a bunch of other Viacom content, back to Hulu.
The deal will also bring in shows from all of Viacom’s networks, meaning content from MTV, VH1, Spike TV, BET, and TV Land–and specifically current episodes of shows like Jersey Shore, Tosh.0, and Hot In Cleveland–will be available through Hulu for three weeks after they air. Those who subscribe to Hulu Plus, meanwhile, can have access to Viacom’s vast library of older fare like The Chappelle Show, Reno 911, The Real World, Punk’d, and Beavis And Butt-Head.
In celebration of this news, here’s another look at Mr. Colbert’s visit to the Consumer Reports labs:
