John Krasinski is turning his YouTube series into a CBS All Access show
New episodes of Some Good News will stream exclusively on ViacomCBS’s streaming service, CBS All Access, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Krasinski, however, will no longer host the show. Instead, he’ll step into a producing role, with a new host to be announced at a later date.
Whether a version of Some Good News produced by one of the largest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world can retain the authenticity of Krasinski’s show will be the biggest concern. Krasinski’s show works because it’s one man sitting behind his desk at home, looking into a web camera, and reacting to viral videos. It’s quintessentially a YouTube series. There are no network executive notes or concerns about proper lighting. Under ViacomCBS, that might change. Production values might increase, the new host might not be as immediately likable and charming, and the corporatization of the entire show might act as a turnoff. Genuineness isn’t something that people can fake very well or very easily.
