February 3, 2011

(AP) -- "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report," which have been absent from online video service Hulu for almost a year, are back on the free service.

But you'll have to pay $8 a month for the Hulu Plus premium plan to watch shows like "Jersey Shore," "Tosh.0" and "Teen Mom 2." Those shows will be available to paying customers 21 days after they debut on TV.

The new content deal between the owner of Comedy Central, Viacom Inc., and the online venture owned by ., The Walt Disney Co. and Corp.'s NBC Universal was announced Wednesday.

Terms were not disclosed

Hulu CEO Jason Kilar applauded the deal by citing an abbreviation from "Jersey Shore" meaning "down to snuggle": "We are thankful that was DTS."
