You've got yourself a deal, Viacom

News broke yesterday that Comedy Central would no longer allow popular video site Hulu to present episodes of “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report.”

The Hollywood Reporter asked Viacom if the network intends to go after websites or bloggers who post unauthorized clips.

“Yes, we intend to do so,” PR rep Tony Fox told THR. “My feeling is if (websites) are making money on our copyrighted content, then that is a problem.”

I can’t speak for anybody else, but I’m absolutely content with no longer helping Comedy Central promote their products. I haven’t watched an entire episode of either show in years. Stewart and Colbert, along with Bill Maher and all the other self-congratulatory applause-break comedians out there, seem to be doing just fine without my help. I’m more than happy to comply.

Also, they never should have canceled Tough Crowd.
