If you like "Best Week Ever" -- which has its moments for me but I never record it or remember to catch it -- you might like "Best Night Ever." But maybe not. Can they keep it fresh? Can they keep it interesting? They've got one advantage over me and other video bloggers like RB, Kitka, Steve Garfield, Moments Showing, etc. They've got more money. But that doesn't mean they've got better ideas, personality, writing. They'll have higher production value (sets, locations, sound, lighting, etc) but they may not be able to translate that into audience. I think so much depends on the value of the content. Viewers of video blogs are willing to accept lower production value for more personal, more independent, offbeat, quirky, honest, edgy, sexy material -- or whatever it is the Internet video users is searching for. Some part of me instinctively flinches at the entrance of established commercial media, but another part of me thinks: bring it on. You guys make such terrible, mediocre crap, come on to my playing field and let's rumble. In the end the commercial media entry into Internet video blogging may have a salutory effect: ultimately it validates Internet video as a worthwile market.
