you don't get your pudding if you don't eat your meat
It seems like Viacom is taking the bold move of removing The Daily Show and The Colbert Report from HULU, much to this dismay of college students with MacBooks everywhere. Bloggers everywhere (including us) are going to have a much harder time embedding clips of last night’s zingers on their posts.
The shows will still be available on ComedyCentral.com, but have you tried to use that site? I mean COME. ON. You need some sunglasses. So many colors.
But seriously folks, in all actuality the videos that get posted to Comedy Central’s microsites: TheDailyShow.com and ColbertNation.com aren’t half bad. It’s just going to be frustrating for people who sort of like an all in one solution, but for that, there’s always Boxee, which is better at online video than Hulu anyway.
One more gripe, when you embed, the video isn’t 16:9. What is this, 2007?

Kudos to MTV who launched MTVmusic.com recently. The videos-only site allows users to search practically their entire collection of music videos. MTVmusic.com is like a HULU.com for music videos. Given that MTV rarely plays music videos on television anymore, the information superhighway is where it’s at. Back to basics, we like that. You can keep MTV.com for re-caps of The Hills and The Real World.
