Hulu snags Daily Show, Colbert Report, and NOVA

Online video site Hulu has added some high profile programming to help tie you over during the summer rerun season. Thanks to a partnership with PBS, Hulu users will be able to watch shows like Nova, Carrier, Scientific American Frontiers, and Wired Science starting later this month.
Wait, that's not the really exciting part. I mean, sure, it's pretty cool for science geeks. But most of those shows are already available via the PBS web site, not to mention available for free over the air. But Hulu is also announcing another partnership today. The company has teamed up with Viacom to stream full length episodes of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.
As of today, there are a good 15 episodes of each Comedy Central program available as free, advertising-supported streams. For anyone keeping track, this means Hulu now has content from Fox, NBC Universal, MGM, Sony, Warner Brothers, PBS, and Viacom and a handful of other big name studios and independent content producers.
