YouTube is sniffing around the possibility of producing its own TV shows, and its VP of content Kevin Donahue said at CES that the company is even thinking of creating a TV channel with selected clips chosen from the millions that are hosted by YouTube on line.
"We're noodling on it. We haven't gone down a specific road yet. We've had a lot of conversations with networks that want us to do shows, companies that want us to do linear YouTube channels ... We're more in strategy phase right now."
"Noodling" on it? Ha. Sounds like this might be a hybrid of America's Funniest Home Videos and Jackass all rolled into one.
