Would You Watch Online Videos on TV?

I told you the other day that a major theme of the CW's presentations at the TCA press tour was that it's the youngest — and, theoretically, the coolest — of the broadcast networks. To that end, the network will premiere a show this fall called "Online Nation," which will attempt to cull the best viral videos on the Web into a half-hour show hosted by Stevie Ryan (at right), better known as YouTube's Little Loca.

On the one hand, I think it's cool that the CW is trying to incorporate Web audiences and online video makers into its programming. On the other hand, part of the appeal of Web videos for me is watching them when I have a free moment or just need a laugh; I don't have to stick to a TV schedule. What do you think? Could you see yourself watching funny Web stuff on TV regularly?

What TV station doesn't already have a lame show like this? STOP!

Sounds very lame. But if a show like this is already on VH1, that just shows that Viacom encourages its networks(BET,MTV,VH1,CBS,CW) to copy one another.

Isn't there already a show on VH1 that's like this? It's like Webjunk or something like that.

Part of their appeal is the fact they short clips and are only online
