YouTube has some terrific free channels with exclusive content being posted during the shelter-in-place/Quarantine timeframe we’re in. Here are some suggestions for you:
A few years ago when the TV show SURVIVOR was unique and different and much more awesome than it is today (not because today’s version is less challenging, but because Survivor has become more mainstream when compared to other programming — and because Web Watch has an awesome idea for Jeff Probst and crew that we’d love to see implemented on a future season of Survivor… if only Probst would return our calls)… where were we?
Ah – yes, a few years ago when the TV show SURVIVOR was unique and different, Web Watch helped with a promotion entitled URBAN SURVIVOR. The premise was exactly the same, with contestants living in unfamiliar circumstances and having to compete in challenges to survive until the end.
Thanks to all of you who took the time to visit WEB WATCH in 2012.
For those of you who weren’t able to read Web Watch every day, here’s a quick look at what everyone took a look at while they were here.
Are you watching the current BRAVO TV program LOLWORK?
It’s a reality TV program that allegedly shows the real-world behind-the-scenes workings of how the Cheezburger Network — home toLOL CATSand millions of other funny animal pictures and videos — does business.
While most the show appears to be purposefully driven to make what is supposed to be good TV, there are specific business-aspects that get aired that really for-real give a reasonable peek behind the curtain of what it takes to run a popular content-driven website.
Watching LOLWORK will give you a good reminder that it’s always hard work to create good, compelling CONTENT for your website, but that it’s that same content that also brings eyeballs to your site in the first place. Focus on the content, let everything else fall into place later.
By now, Web Watch is sure you’ve seen the trainwreck of a reality TV show on TLC, HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO.
We thought it would be a perfect time to tell you how to DRESS LIKE HONEY BOO BOO as the Perfect Halloween Costume for this year.
Does anyone remember that FOX TV reality show MR PERSONALITY?
On this dating show, the male contestants all wore masks to hide their facial features from their potential love interest. The concept was that for any pure relationship to work, one’s personality should take priority over one’s looks.
Obviously, with the subsequent success of shows without masks like THE BACHELOR, the American TV audience is more interested in the visuals and sex appeal of their reality TV contestants rather than the more sincere personality-driven programming.
There are fans of the TV show SURVIVOR – like Web Watch and others we know, who enjoy the adventure and gameplay that Jeff Probst and Mark Burnett bring to our television screens each week (along with the hysterical ignorance of every contestant to Jeff’s constant advice to always be looking towards the end-game in determining how to best strategize your way to a $1 million dollar grand prize).
And there are Super Fans, folks who study every aspect of the show – who train themselves on show trivia and gaming techniques in the hopes that they too will be picked by the shows’ casting directors and added to the list of hundreds of Survivor contestants who have pushed themselves to the limits (both mental and physical) to claim the title of Ultimate Survivor.
