In this Friday’s installment of our partnership with 5by, the video discovery platform that curates the web’s best viral videos, we take a look at the top five videos of the week from the platform’s TV category.
Trending this week is a host of clips all either added this week, about a new series, or about a new season. For more on the videos selected, Theo Tabah, 5by’s Head of Content:
Late night TV clips continue to make for viral videos as hosts coax celebs into doing wacky things, speak their mind or poke fun at serious issues. Jimmy works out with The Rock, John Oliver blows our minds with some disturbing American prison stats, and 14 year-old’s performance on Australia’s Got Talent will certainly go through the social media share cycle.We’re also seeing more and more YouTube stars get big-time deals, and paving the way is ”Epic Meal Time” – a popular miniseries that involves dudes, ridiculous recipes, and usually bacon. It was offered a TV show and naturally, they released their entire first episode for free online. Finally, another teaser was released for the 5th and final season of Boardwalk Empire, which is gearing up to be the best yet.
