The Chris Gethard Show is just the latest crazy, hilarious, original project from Chris Gethard. Chris has spent the last few years dreaming up some of the coolest comedy projects to come out of New York City. He's used his brilliance to bring Diddy to the UCB, treat a depressed comedy nerd to the time of his life, travel cross country using only Twitter as a map, and is now broadcasting weekly out of Manhattan Neighborhood Network every Wednesday. Learn more about Chris and how his work ethic propels him this week on The Wolf Den.
Episode 41 — The Chris Gethard Show

Will Earwolf be affiliated with the upcoming CBB show on IFC? If so, will any revenue come in if the show gets picked up? On a different note, the new Eardrop initiative is absurdly good/funny. This has the potential to be a major innovation to the existing Twitter platform. Having brief audio clips that are seamlessly integrated into tweets would be welcomed by countless industries and advertisers. Good luck "fuddy duddy!"

Great episode. Chris Gethard is hilarious and his show is really great.
On another note, I don't see the problem with bringing in a big time show that could act as a tent pole to support the network, even if it doesn't fit the original plan you've set. It's not a radio station where anyone would be forced to listen to it. This is likely a much worse scenario than the one you were actually presented with, but for example: If you started running a show that would bring in some big advertising dollars called Donald Trump's Jackass Business Hour why would anyone care? Sure, Donald Trump is the worst, but I wouldn't have to listen to it and the money could act to support the network. Unless it would force you to actually change shows you are already running, I really don't see how it's a problem. It's not like you'd be supporting Donald Trump so much as he would be supporting you. If AMC started running Donald Trump's Jackass Business Hour on Wednesdays I'd still watch Breaking Bad and Mad Men.
