If you're looking for entertainment news on YouTube this year, you'll have a lot of choices.  The latest two original channels, The Young Hollywood Network and ENTV, will be a constant flow of celebrities, news, and Hollywood gossip.  The two new entertainment channels will now compete with the already-established ClevverTV and its many celebrity/entertainment/gossip shows.  ENTV promises to be an all-day entertainment news channel while Young Hollywood will post new videos every day at 1 PM EST.  As long as these channels don't start producing reality shows for people who think they're celebrities, I'll be OK with it.

Young Hollywood, ENTV The Latest Original Content YouTube Channels

Younghollywood.com, founded in 2007 by RJ Williams, was already an established entertainment website with around a million users, and YouTube snatched them up.  The Young Hollywood Network [Tubular Creator ProfilesView Creator Profile] will have 5 shows each week:

  • Monday: Studio Secrets
  • Tuesday: Quiet on the Set
  • Wednesday: Power Players
  • Thursday: Guest List Only
  • Friday: Celebrity Trend Report

On Saturdays and Sundays it looks like they have some special grab-bag of shows.  Like this week, it's "Celeb Bites: Vegan Cooking."

Here's their preview video:

ENTV [Tubular Creator ProfilesView Creator Profile] is a product of ION TV and PMC.  PMC is behind things like deadline.com, Movieline, TVLine, and HollywoodLife.com.  The idea is to bring all of those sources together for basically a 24/7 look at entertainment.  They were all over the Golden Globes and their site is filled with related content:

You get the idea.  Established brands, easy to get advertisers to work with, you as a viewer have tons of choices, everybody wins.
