Epic Meal Time's success is amazing, and it keeps on rolling with the announcement that it will get a chance on the gaming/entertainment network G4 soon. The deal gives Epic Meal Time a pilot, but let's face it, that show is likely to get a season there as the show seems easily tailored for success on TV. The web sensation was picked up by Revision3 in April and their YouTube channel has more than 2 million subscribers and nearly 300 million upload views. And now, they go to a perfect place for their demented cooking show in G4.

This comes not too long after another YouTube sensation, The Annoying Orange, was picked up by The Cartoon Network last month.

The show is hosted by Harley Morenstein and hails from Montreal. Here's a few of Epic Meal Time's episodes, including their latest Christmas-themed episode, "Bacon Tree:"
