Now who will feel the news at me?

Sad news for all of us Stewart and Colbert fans with DirecTV... or early bedtimes, no DVRs, and busy schedules - full episodes of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report will no longer stream online. This is due to a battle over the fees Viacom demanded for it's channels to be aired on DirecTV. In addition to yanking some of their channels (e.g. Comedy Central) from DirecTV, Viacom has now forced the removal of full episodes form the shows official websites. Clips will still be available, but still.

To arms!

Just kidding! This is most likely not a permanent change. The nature of this fanbase is young, professional, and nerdy - in other words, you can pry our internet streaming from our cold, dead fingers. More information can be found at The Huffington Post.
