article imageStewart and Colbert shows added to Hulu

By Chris V. Thangham     Jun 10, 2008 in Entertainment
Hulu is slowly becoming a central network for TV Shows online. It's recently added two popular Comedy Central shows to its already large collection.

Stephen Colbert's "The Colbert Report".

Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show".
Video site Hulu is trying to become a premier online site like YouTube. While it may not reach YouTube status, it certainly won’t lag far behind. Hulu is backed by TV broadcasting companies such as NBC and News Corp, so it is able to get all the big TV shows from them. The other broadcasting companies have not joined yet but companies like Viacom are releasing shows to Hulu.
Hulu announced it added Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” and Stephen Colbert’s “The Colbert Report.” to their online offering. I checked Hulu and found “The Daily Show” has more than 15 full episodes from this season along with popular clips. The same can be said with “The Colbert Report.” Hopefully Hulu will add more in the future.
These two shows are already available on Viacom's parent site ComedyCentral.com, but they don't offer embeddable videos, ratings and comment features like Hulu.com. The shows are available on Joost.com but with Hulu, it will get a broader exposure.
Hulu also plans to add popular shows from PBS such as Nova, Carrier, Scientific American Frontiers, Wired Science and more.
Altogether, Hulu offers nearly 70 TV shows (most of them full episodes) with ads. The revenue will be shared equally between the producers of the show and Hulu.
