You forgot to include subsidiaries, like dorkly. If you check the dorkly trends, they were still making money. Go ahead, check the trends.

I did wonder how they had that big office and sustainable income for the cast - it looked like they had much more money to spend then I thought that such a show would be bringing in.

College humor humor sucks, it's like theyo have to explain and overanalyze their own jokes. If you have to explain your own joke, then it isn't funny at all. Most of videos I've seen of them, involve awkward silence / can you believe this guy sort of crap

CollegeHumor is 10% comedy gold, but 90% comedy cringe. Most of the actors are real life losers, who would be bullied to death in school. Unfortunately that did not generate humor for them in their adult lives.

I knew Sam Reich, having worked with him in the summer of 2003 doing live “street theater” at the NY Ren Faire. He’s a brilliant improv actor and I’m sure he will find a new home somewhere.

I stopped watching a few years ago, when it stopped being college kids making funny videos and turned more towards liberal propaganda, I didn't watch College Humor to be spoon fed what to believe, watched it to laugh

The dropout subscription service was worth buying, lots of really great content on there. Unfortunately, most of the smaller shows were canceled after the layoffs and the service has gotten less valuable. Still, subscribe to Dropout! It’s got some creative and entertaining stuff.

I mean, I wanna be sad, but Collegehumor has sucked out loud for at least five years now. They may not have died until very recently, but I mourned for them a long time ago. Now Cracked, that was the real travesty.

One of the biggest reasons imo is the severe drop in talent, they had some pretty good writers just 2-3 years ago and with a few of the main cast leaving around then the quality started to really drop.

I actually really liked some of the new stuff still (even though I watched their really old videos). Brennan, Grant, ally, Katie, etc. we’re amazing actors and really helped keep the channel afloat and I would still watch them if they were able to keep going. I will miss them.

They were really funny at one point pushing envelopes the actors were likeable but around the time that tide pod CEO video came out. that was it I tuned out after that they weren't funny anymore just trying to push a political message and it failed.

Some of the newer cast members are great, Raph and Brennan for example. But they’ll never compare to CH in its prime with Jake and Amir, Murr, Gerwich, and everyone else

So the line about having 20 years to make money is pretty bad. They obviously were profitable at some point. When Sam says they were almost profitable he is talking about their subscription service DROPOUT which launched I wanna say some time in the last 2 years. Obviously, a subscription service is a front-heavy investment since they had to fund shows before charging for a subscription. But I guess whether they actually were close to making a profit is kinda irrelevant now.

As they got older, their content aged with them. Their videos of them playing games and podcasts weren’t appealing to their majority of viewers, aka middle schoolers, and I don’t think they realised that middle schoolers were their target demographic. I love college humour but I miss the sketches that I could generally relate to as part of their target demographic

Jake and Amir are at HeadGum, and while videos are less than frequent, they have established a set of running gags, the most prominent being, aside from Marty's parents' divorce, is HeadGum hemorrhaging money. But this is something else.

Wanna know why I dropped CH? With the new staff it was becoming more and more like Buzzfeed, with all their political corectness, sjw crap, preachiness and none of the edge. They dug their own grave.

I don't know about the numbers argument. Searches for just "college humor" don't factor in brands they controlled like drawfee and Demenshion20 new successful ESwomen channels with viewer counts in the millions. If you factor in these numbers there engagement and revenue streams where up and growing. College humor was expanded making new products. I'm just glad that with all the members of drawfee fired they where allowed to continue the channel on their own outside College Humor without having to change the name or fight for the legal rights.

The pie is too large, too many channels, too many competitors. If i'm in a group of a hundred people, maybe two or three are watching what i'm watching. It's so fractured these days. You either go big all the way or sink into the long tail.
