5 reasons FOX’s ADHD will beat SNL

Quietly in the past few months, FOX laid the groundwork for a revolution in late night. It has nothing to do with Lorne, Fallon, Leno, Conan, Kimmel, Letterman, Stewart, or Colbert. In fact, kids growing up in America for the past 15 years might never have been significantly exposed to those late night titans, thanks […]

Event programming is here to stay, no matter the platform

I’ve written about event programming here before in the context of live TV, so here’s an update. At a certain point, we had to know it was coming: just like the movies, it’s getting harder and harder to take a good risk on TV. That’s a shocking thought during this golden age of television, but […]

Now I get it: Google wants my cable box

I was upset to hear of the passing of Robert Galvin, the longtime CEO of Motorola and a man I was lucky enough to spend a day with in 2006 (a story for another post). But even in death, he’s inspiring some ideas: I didn’t realize Motorola Mobility, yes that half of the company, doesn’t […]

YouTube’s live push plays to the internet’s real time strengths

I still find it impressive how much the internet has changed the focus of our communication to real-time, current, relevant information, shrinking the news cycle and creating massive events around happenings that once might have only been a blip on our collective radar. Even if these new real-time events only last a few hours, they […]

Streamys 2010: Making web content is hard. It’s amazing we’re even able to do it. Get over it.

At last year’s Streamy Awards, everything felt new and exciting, if a bit self-serving. The first annual awards were a chance for a burgeoning group of starry-eyed creators to gather in meatspace for the first time and acknowledge that yeah, we’re all doing this, and yeah, we’re onto something here. During the show, the in-jokes […]

The iPad as interactive storytelling device (with the right software)

With the hype dying down, TechCrunch recently published a

Broadcast is dead. Long live broadcast!

With this week’s announcement of NBC falling under the same corporate umbrella as NBCU’s cable empire (Bravo, Syfy, Oxygen, MSNBC, CNBC, the list goes on…), broadcast television is dead. Where there has always been a dotted line between the profits of the NBCU cable empire and the losses of NBC Entertainment, there’s now also a […]

We Live in Public, but it’s more complicated than that

I had the pleasure of seeing We Live in Public the other night, Ondi TImoner’s well-done and well-received follow-up to DiG!. It follows the life of Josh Harris, a guy you’d think us web series enthusiasts would know more about, considering he founded the very first web TV station, Pseudo, using a lot of money […]

What NBC’s ratings woes can teach us about TV and web series aesthetics

It’s not news that NBC’s ratings are in the toilet, and the vast majority of critics will argue that it’s a result of the network developing and airing shows that have narrow audience appeal. Shows like Kings, 30 Rock, and the recently-premiered The Listener might be hailed by critics and appreciated by TV nerds like […]

Cold, hard, factual numbers pwn Kevin Wasson, @paidContent

Kevin Wasson posted yesterday at paidContent about how Hulu and other web services offering television for free are doing more harm than good: the networks have simply relegated themselves to being content producers. …The value of NBC is not in a show like Heroes or Friends. The value of NBC is the more than 70 […]
