John Krasinski's SGN (Some Good News) on YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOe...S3PdIfb9q9pGug

Is anyone here watching this channel on YouTube? What a delight this channel is. He posts a new episode every Friday and focuses on the positive going on in the world despite the coronavirus.

4 episodes have aired and they have been a delight to watch.

He already has almost 2 million subscribers for something that just launched 4 weeks ago.

I totally don't get into the YouTube stuff, but I saw this on a news article, and have been watching these ever since. Pretty fun and lighthearted stuff, which is the antidote we all need during this time.

Brad Pitt's weather was funny on the latest one.

I really enjoyed last night's episode of SGN. The Office "reunion" was fun. They even got Creed as well.

I think after last week's episode, Krasinski didn't have much great material this week. It was mostly a clip show.

I'm willing to bet that Krasinski is getting scripts in for real work and he needs to read them and talk to producers and such. So this side gig has to be put on hold for now.

Sold to ViacomCBS after a massive bidding war.

I enjoyed the 2 months with him hosting it. But as I said, he ultimately has to go back to his day job. But, good for him getting rewarded for the work he put into it.

Just didn't feel like something that needed to be monetized.

Feel-good fluff sells.

I agree with your basic point, but if he didn’t want to continue, it had become too valuable a property to just give away, and it sounds like he’ll still have some control as an executive producer. Maybe he also negotiated that it would maintain some free component etc.

I wonder if all those people that did him a favor by guest starring will be getting a cut.

I think it was his plan to monetize it all along.


What's too bad is that anyone who set up their own version of the show (something Krasinski actively encouraged in one of the eps) is now going to be served a cease and desist letter

It’s also a shame that another rich guy gets richer. I bet there are a bunch of regular folk who did the same kind of thing but didn’t get a big offer from anyone.

Re: John Krasinski's SGN (Some Good News) on YouTube

I did watch it last night. It was a nice episode. Most of it focused on an unemployed father who’s also a widow. He was trying to sell all his comics and geek memorabilia to buy Christmas gifts for his kids. John saw his story and tried to buy his stuff, but the guy thought it was a scam. John revealed it was him. Dwayne Johnson came into the mix because the guy also tweeted him to get attention to his stuff for sale to get some help. The Rock came in and said he will buy his kids the gifts and he can keep his stuff. He’s also paying for a trip to let him bring his kids to tour WB when the pandemic is over and will also give him a signed copy of his script. It was a nice story and I was happy John and The Rock helped him.
