YouTube & Television

Within the past couple of years, the majority of chat shows, from the US, UK, and all around the world, have started YouTube channels devoted to their show. Usually, the channel consists of clips and videos of stuff that happened on the show a couple of nights a go. The most popular chat show channels are ones like The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late Show with James Corden, and CONAN. The reason these channels have started up and became so successful is because this allows all people from around the world to see the humorous events that happened, not just people who have access to it in America. Also with the help from social media (i.e. Facebook and Twitter) it gives the videos the chance to be shared around and gain a lot of publicity. One prime example of this is the Carpool Karaoke series on the Late Late Show with James Corden. Almost everyone has seen the infamous Carpool Karaoke videos with famous singers like Adele, Justin Bieber, One Direction, and my favourite, Stevie Wonder where they drive around LA, sing to their songs and have a fun time. YouTube and social media are the main reason why these videos are so popular, as well as the charisma of James Corden. Before James Corden became the host and before they had a YouTube channel, the Late Late show was not that popular because it aired at 12:30 am, which is really late for most people. So due to the help of social media and YouTube, we wouldn’t know about these hilarious videos with amazing content.
