Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert renew Comedy Central deals

On the heels of a new election season, Comedy Central late night hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have signed deals to remain with the network for a few more years.

Election cycles obviously provide a wealth of material for both “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” and “The Colbert Report” — and with new contracts in place, Stewart will remain at the network through mid-2015, with Colbert signing through 2014.

Stewart has been on the air since 1998; Colbert started his show in 2005. Viacom, which owns Comedy Central, will present shows from several of its networks to press next Friday at the Summer TV Press Tour 2012.
