If I Can Dream — Hulu’s first foray into original programming — is set to premiere on March 2 on Hulu and IfICanDream.com.
The made-for-web TV show — which will be made available internationally — is a joint collaboration between the online TV syndicator and Simon Fuller’s 19 Entertainment.
December saw the top web series bounce back in popularity after a two-month slump. Actually, they did more than that.
The highest peak recorded since we started our monthly series was 93 million views in September. It dropped all the way to 73 million in November. Last month? 106 million. That’s despite the tendency for online viewership to drop while people visit their families during the holidays.

Internet news needs investigative journalists with credibility and integrity to create compelling original content.
There is nothing inherent to ink-on-paper that makes it better suited for telling news.
The internet frees video news from the shackles of network censors and the time constraints of a formula news show.
I would buy any product that buys in-line ad time for Ted Koppel: Uncensored, and would watch it every night if they made their API available for Boxee, App Store Apps, and the like.
First Review: 18 JULY 2008
From the Website:
“the show with zefrank” was a short video program produced Monday through Friday
for one year (March 17, 2006 – March 17, 2007). […] Start by watching a popular episode or two—but realize that you’re joining a conversation already in progress.
While no longer topical, “the show with zefrank” definitely holds up with age. That isn’t something you can say about a lot of Internet Original material.
Smart, hip, and funny – this podcast is a shining example of the quality that Internet Originals can be.
I recommend starting at the beginning and watching three or four in a setting. Any more than that can cause confusion, then addiction, and finally sudden withdrawl when the show comes abruptly to a stop.
Ze, I know you’re still out there. I hope you come back online with another show.
