Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert Hulu.com Price Tag at $40 Million

Colbert & Stewart Hulu.com News

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are available for a cool $40 million. Or, that is how much Hulu.com will fork out to get The Daily Show and The Colbert Report back on their programming, according to AllThingsDigital.com.

Both Colbert’s and Stewart’s shows left the site last March, taking with them a hefty chunk of Hulu.com’s trafficking. In order to get Colbert and Stewart back, Hulu.com has agreed to make a payment to cable giant Viacom in the range of $40 million to $50 million.

Viacom will only allow the deal to extend to 2012, but this two year deal means that Colbert’s and Stewart’s shows will be back on Hulu.com, available the day after they air.

Does this deal effect you greatly? What do you make of it? Sound off in the comments below.
