Jon Stewart is back!

I would bet you never even knew that he was gone. Fear not, Viacom and YouTube have reached common ground. According to AdWeek, Viacom had this to say:
"Like our peers in the media industry, we are focused on finding the right business model for professionally created content to be legally distributed on the Internet," the Viacom rep said. "We want our audiences to be able to access our programming on every platform and we're interested in having it live on all forms of distribution in ways that protect our talented artists, our loyal customers and our passionate audiences."
Although no official licensing agreement has been reached, YouTube has Viacom's blessing to store and show short clips from The Daily Show, Colbert Report, South Park and others.

Merry Christmas.

Whoa. A media conglomerate that gets it.

Is the sky falling? Has hell frozen over?
