It is a shame that he will not continue career dive, as they are the content that I have liked from him. It showed passion.
Oh, the slide in views is still happening. Now he's averaging around 300K for a Nostalgia Critic video. That is really bad considering before The Wall video he was averaging well over a million. It'll just continue to slide. The questioning is what is the breaking point where Doug can no longer afford to hire his little acting troupe and his "studio".

Honestly, it's like with most other CA reviewers (or others who mimic the CA-style reviewing format). They've done the exact same formula for the past decade and some change while viewers jump ship and try to scavenger something fresh, new and original, which explains why these videos keep struggling to hit as many views as back in the old days.

Sure, while this also applies to some viewers finding out behind-the-scenes drama and such, even then people are just trying to find something more original in this day and age rather than watching the same exact shtick over and over. And those who still keep watching aren't as die-hard of fans as they were back then, but morseo they just tolerate them.

Well, I would say it's more the fallout of The Wall video. It shined a light on how incompetent and uninformed Doug is and it became (for lack of a better term) uncool to watch his content.

It's like when the character Stewart in Beavis & Butt-head wears the Winger shirt:

Probably further away than we think given that Doug and company as able to move to a bigger studio after #ChangeTheChannel.

If you wanna put it that way, you think another Wall esque video will be the thing to finally sink Doug for good?

I think they're already sinking. Another bad take opus that goes viral for all the wrong reasons might do it. But I think Doug, Rob and Michaud are considering Plan B options when this finally is no longer profitable for them to do.

Edit: I noticed in the Tom & Jerry video (that I heavily skimmed through and once you remove all the plugs including the charity plugs the review is closer to 19 minutes long) that Malcolm and Tamara are only in the beginning sketch and that was it. You could say COVID restrictions but I'd be willing to bet that he can't afford to pay them to come out as often as he used to.

As a side note YouTube pushes Channel Awesome as recommended. It doesn't help due the fact that Nostalgia Critic format ages like milk carton stuck behind the radiator, Doug and rest of Channel Awesome degenerates aren't exactly funny after woke disease spread from Lindsay to Linkara. Combined with cringe and YouTube going to shit, Zoomers are more interested ogling at Vtubers, having sugar paper thin skin in current year, being trannies, furfags, etc. Due the fact that content creators are scared shitless to try to be funny and offend some 1/256 native American or something similar and get cancelled as a result.

This is why likes of Linkara are sucking tranny cock, whore himself on twitch playing Pokémon or other children's games.

Doug can't seem to find new formats, innovate or create projects that aren't unfunny or dated. He writes a manchild who is stuck in past and wants old times to come back, unfortunately for him they aren't and his fragile ego will not accept feedback or innovate.

For example James Rolf reviews modern games, does things with his white couch nigger Mike Matei.

Doug unlike James, Sage know how to shill merch and get sponsors.

In his infinite Wisdom Doug in his infinite wisdom just Keep burning bridges.

And lastly entire CA are DEVOID of charisma and magnetism. Not inability to improve themselves as script writers.

TLDR Channel Awesome is going way of machina and Rooster Teeth due to lack of adaptability

You can bet the second Malcolm and Tamera leave, everyone will be trying to get them to “spill the tea” of what happened behind the scenes.

I gotta be honest (and blast me all you want), but this is one of the most hypocritical threads on this site, if not THE most. You guys dedicate your time to talking about how terrible Doug is and his inabilities as a reviewer, while taking cheap shots at his fans, friends and folks, but as soon as someone else on youtube or twitter does it, you dog pile on them and mock them for beating a dead horse, when you're practically doing the exact same thing. You're somehow worse than Nostalgia Critic.View attachment 2245942
Literally who are you and why should I care

All I know is that you’re an autistic faggot based on your use of a children’s show for pedophiles

Out of the blue, I decided to watch his Blade Trinity video and it was just so lazy. Utterly lazy. Why Blade Trinity out of the blue? Who knows? Maybe lead up to that and review the Blade movies or do a retrospective video? No? Too much effort for Doug? The most baffling thing is that he never once brings up the bevy of behind the scenes drama for the film. There's a wealth of info on that shit, mostly provided by Patton Oswalt, and Doug doesn't feel that's even worth a mention how Wesley Snipes refused to cooperate, would call Ryan Reynolds a cracker, would stay in his trailer and smoke pot all day, and get physically violent with the director and crew until the director and Patton befriended some bikers and brought them to set as protection.

This faggot doesn't even mention the obvious CGI eyes on Snipes.


The video is so lazy and autopilot. Just utterly lazy and not funny.
Because he reviewed the first two already.

You guys really have it out for Doug and hope he fails, if these last few posts are to be believed.

That and that last doomer post about how much gen zers suck and YouTube sucks is making me consider taking some downtime from this thread.
I’d say it’s about half and half in terms of people wanting him to fail. I think they just post more often.

He's survived worse, barts nightmare couldn't kill his career, CTc couldn't kill his career, half his former staff and coworkers Turing sjw traitor on him couldn't sink him, hell even the wall for as bad it was and made it near impossible for him to break a million views couldn't sink Doug's career.

I doubt that even with the audience for YouTube being what glow said it is (cringe, furries, snowflakes streamers and manchildren) and the site itself being a cluster fuck will impact him much.

And he does sell merch too there's links in most of his videos to a tee shop, plus like most A or b list youtubers he's got sponsorship
