Fans of "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" can count on getting their fake news fix on Comedy Central for years to come. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have renewed their contracts with the network through 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Comedy Central released a statement that Stewart will remain the executive producer, writer and host of "The Daily Show" through the middle of 2015. Colbert’s extension will keep him and "The Colbert Report" on the network through the end of 2014.

After what is sure to be an eventful election season on the political satire shows, these contract extensions ensure that Stewart and Colbert will at least be around for the following midterm elections.

Both "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" received multiple Emmy nominations this year and "The Daily Show" delivers more Adults 18-49 (1.4 million) than any late night talk show in all of television, according to the most recent Nielsen data.
