Jeff Swartz on the next big thing in media

Touching on everything and anything to do with media, advertising, and marketing

The End of AFV?

America’s Funniest Home Videos and other show of that nature cannot hold a candle to the attention humorous websites are getting from 18-25 year-olds. Two examples of these sites are break.com, which used to be big-boys.com, and collegehumor.com.

I used to love watching clips on funny television home video shows, but now I find very few clips on those shows funny. The guy from the movie Varsity Blues said it best…”they should change it to funniest videos of guys getting hit in the nuts.”
Web sites are starting to take over. They have jokes, funny videos, interesting videos, pictures, games, and more all on one stop. Also, they are up dated everyday, so, unlike television shows, they are resent clips.

Some of the content on them may not be appropriate for young children, but the young adults of today seem to eat up the material on them. Also, it allows a person to have a better chance of getting one of your own video or picture online than on a television show.

This is yet another shift of on demand technology becoming more and more appealing to Americans.
