Google Unveils YouTube's New Custom Channels (Including TVLine's Parent Company)

YouTube is changing the game yet again.

After months of speculation, the Google-owned video behemoth confirmed late Friday that it’s launching 100 custom video channels featuring original content produced by the likes of Madonna, Ashton Kutcher, Amy Poehler, Tony Hawk and — wait for it — TVLine’s parent company, Penske Media Corporation!

* Live with Michael and Connie
* Live with Michael and Mariska
* Live with Michael and Kristen
* Live with Michael and Lauren
* Drinking Live with Michael and the Cast of Cougar Town
* Antiques Roadshow: Smurfs
* AS-P Presents Classic Gilmore Girls Scene Reenactments
* Asterisk Quiz Show
* Swag Hoarders
* Who’s The Biggest Aushole?  

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    My dream – and maybe you and Youtube can make it come true for once- is to do a gay version of the View…with pop culture, politics etc from a gay viewpoint…I wish I had the knowhow and money to do the show on youtube so someone could see- but I don’t have the ‘talent’ people I need for my panel…Ive thought about this for years…and had so many ideas for panelists…maybe you can make it come true
