TGWTG "Nostalgia Critic" / Doug Walker, Rob Walker, Mike Michaud, Mike Ellis, Holly Christine Brown, et al - The Incompetent Predator-Protecting Upper Management of Channel Awesome, Doug Still Not That Funny

Looks like there might not be more Career Dives as Doug admitted from 6:55-7:33 that the Julie Taymor Career Dive Bombed.
Here’s the Views for all The Career Dives so Far.

I think why the Julie Taymor Career Dive didn’t do well is because Julie Taymor isn’t that well known, or at least not as well known as a Jim Carrey or Danny Devito. This is the second Career Dive to not do that well as The Danny Devito Career Dive didn’t do well because it got demonetized because of a cigarette in the thumbnail so they had to remove it later on.

I hope that’s not the case because I really enjoyed the Career Dives that Doug put out.
Well, another thing that Doug has to put out to pasture before returning to the NC grind. At least it wasn’t such a massive bomb that it gave his haters ammo to try to run him off the Internet again.

I don't pay attention so I had no idea CA picked up streaming. One of my favourite stories is how LordKat had dinner with Justin Kan (co-founder of Twitch) when Twitch was in its infancy and then went to CA's management offering to run stream content for them (because he was already familiar with it) and got told that streaming was a gimmick that wouldn't go anywhere. How times change!

Yep. And he’s gone on to do hours of podcast time to talk about how CA is a poorly run mess.

Lordkat was one of the early streamers and how did that turn out for him? He ended up a complete hasbeen only remembered for ranting about Spoony and CA. It doesn't matter if you know how things are going to shape up in the future, only if you actually take advantage of that knowledge.

He's got a stable IT job now so I'd say he turned out better than pretty much everyone from CA. Nice job completely missing the point by the way.

But there's still the smallest part of him probably pissed off that Doug and company haven't been forced to shut it all down and leave the Internet thanks to their incompetence, or at least crash and burn and be in the same state Spoony is in.

Unlike the CtC folks, I am guessing Doug and family have enough set aside that they could probably live very comfortably without the site. Even with it not generating as much as it once did, it's still bringing in some cash.
I don't think all these people that shit on Doug would have the big win they thought they would have because he would still be living very well. Hell, he would probably start a moderately successful Walker's Review channel and just do new movie reviews or some shit and still win in the end.

Found this on a 4chan /co/ thread today. Apparently Magpie V. Raven, the victim of the Hazbin Hotel Stalker, Mixx Master / Lincar Rox, admitted that the creator of Chucky Chicken, Michael Cook was shitty to the artists on his projects.

On top of that, Chucky Chicken is also possible ripoff because it has some similarities to another cartoon named Chimney Chicken that came a few years ago around the mid-2010s.

This just further proves that nobody except Channel Awesome's most autistic subscribers care about Doug. And even then they don't care unless he's making crappy preschool sketches and screeching like a monkey.

That and that Doug really doesn't think about what audiences want.
Meanwhile, you may have some trying to egg Doug into just packing it up and getting off the Internet already.

Who the fuck is Julie Taymor?
Julie Taymor is the director of films like Titus and Across The Universe. She was also responsible for The Lion King Musical. She seems more well known for her success on Broadway than Film so that's the big reason why this video bombed. It didn't appeal to the audience, it would make sense for someone like Schaffrillas or Lindsay Ellis to do a video on her because they both have covered musicals quite a bit on their channels. Doug rarely talks about musicals or Broadway so that kind of audience who would watch a video about those subjects are most likely not watching Doug in the first place.

And if Schaffrillas does such a video, I'm willing to bet he'll take a shot at how poorly Doug's video did, and how he can blow a has been out of the water.

He already took a potshot at Doug in his Over The Hedge review as well on Twitter so it would most likely happen. He's also the kind of video creator who shoves his political views into his videos when it doesn't relate to the subject in question so those who do that kind of thing have no restraint.

If Doug doesn't think about what audiences want, why is he still doing Nostalgia Critic? Because it puts food on the table? He's hated doing it since 2012. Back then, people were super pissed off that it was going to end, but I don't think they'd be so mad now that he's run it into the ground.

You answered your own question.

Well, #ChangeTheChannel looked like the last real thing that could bring the Nostalgia Critic to an end.

It's one of the many reasons why I unsubbed from Schaffrilas (AKA: Great Value EmpLemon). A shame really because I do agree with him on DreamWorks movies such as Megamind and Over the Hedge, plus his YTPs were quite good. Too bad he's just yet another typical breadtuber at the end of the day.

That, or either Nostalgia Critic episodes, Hocus Pocus or The Wall.

Even putting aside his political views, I can't take Schaffrillas seriously because 1. that fucking voice 2. his honest to God enragement at Shark Tale when even Doug Walker for all the autistic jokes we make of him never sounded legit mad at the movie and 3. of course he's the kind of guy who loves watching Breadtube. Why not?

Also, I remember his potshot at Doug coming across as so weird the first time I watched him. Because like, only dedicated Nostalgia Critic fans and haters would remember the "Comedy comes from misery" thing. Like, if he was a big Nostalgia Critic fan before compensating by hating Doug, that's just weird. And really, having such strong feelings of hate towards Doug Walker is weird too. Get your goofy ass off of Twitter. And even then, that's not even something Doug is wrong about in a general sense. Like, there are so many things to make fun of Doug for but come on, Mr. Smart Analyzer Man, you have to realize that it's an element in a lot of actually funny jokes. Besides, he fucking loves Tom and Jerry, why wouldn't he think "Comedy comes from misery"?

Also, I just wanna bring up how fucking mad he sounds in this tweet. Like, that's just funny.

Dear god, at least EmpLemon didn't go as far as to become an "intellectual" breadtuber. Even Emp's video essays on stuff like The Thing (1982), Leafy, The Wizard of Oz, nuclear warfare, or Viacom weren't close to being breadtube material (and plus, he did an incredible job with his Jimmy Kimmel rant and he did get me interested in Nascar again thanks to his Dale Earnhardt video).
