Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert re-up with Comedy Central
Comedy Central announced Tuesday morning that hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have both signed individual extensions of their contracts. Stewart will continue to host "The Daily Show” through June 2013, while Colbert will remain at the helm of “The Colbert Report” through the end of 2012. Both comedians also serve as executive producers of their programs.
The new deals mean both Stewart and Colbert will be in place for the 2012 presidential election. It remains to be seen how the two men, who fare well with younger viewers, will do when TBS launches its new pairing of Conan O’Brien and George Lopez this fall.
