As I wrote earlier today, “The Office” actor John Krasinski created the popular YouTube show “Some Good News” (SGN) and, while the response was largely positive toward Krasinski for all his hard work, there was a part of the population who immediately turned on Krasinski for doing what capitalists do, and capitalizing on the fact that he had a hit product by selling it to CBS.
I argued that Krasinski is anything but a bad guy for doing this. He’s a very popular actor and he can’t keep doing this show forever. As fun as the ride was, it had a purpose and the purpose has been served. It will now be a part of CBS All Access, which is CBS’s paid streaming service, and will go on without Krasinski as the host.
