When NBC News and Cenk Uygur “mutually agreed” to part ways last week, Uygur took to his internet news program to explain his departure. He boasted that his YouTube show had “up to a million views per day.” This suggests that the world was hungry for Uygur’s special brand of progressive political commentary.
We here at Breitbart.tv have taken a look inside the numbers and the fact is that political commentary is not what online viewers of “The Young Turks” keep clicking for. In fact, they aren’t looking for “news” either. The “up to a million views per day” are coming from folks interested in the same thing most online consumers are looking for: scantily clad women and sensationalistic viral stories.
Here is a very brief and hilarious overview of the top 50 highest rated shows presented by Uygur. These aren’t cherry-picked, these are the shows that got Uygur those ratings at YouTube that he is bragging about. Millions of people have indeed clicked on The Young Turks over the years, and these are the most popular shows according to YouTube statistics.
After viewing them you’ll be asking yourself how NBC News ever hired him in the first place.
Special thanks to Big Hollywood contributor Ezra Dulis for editing this video and for having to sit through all 50 of these shows. Hazard pay is in order.
