Discovery Digital Networks is rolling out two new series today, starring YouTubers like Catie Wayne (Boxxy), Tay Zonday, Tara Long, and Lucas Cruikshank (Fred), for its Revision3 and Animalist Networks.
The Animalist show is hosted by YouTube-turned-film-and-TV star Lucas Cruikshank, who many of you know by his once-popular Fred character. In “Cute Combat,” Cruikshank will look to determine the “cutest animal video ever.” In each episode, the host will pit two videos against each other, and then ask the audience to vote/comment, ultimately deciding which video is the best. New episodes of “Cute Combat” will air on Animalist every Monday.
The other series, “Anyhoo,” is a new daily show aimed at covering the top stories of the day, from pop culture to politics, sex, and whatever else is happening (or being talked about) on social media. Show’s cast includes Wayne, whose BoxxyBabee channel has more than 339,000 subscribers on YouTube, crooner Tay Zonday (“Chocolate Rain”; more than 837,000 subscribers on YouTube), and Tara Long, the former host of Revision3’s “Rev3Games” and “Destructoid.”
New episodes of “Anywhoo” will roll out twice a day, every day, on Revision3.com and the network’s YouTube channel.
