"A Video Site Where Almost Everything is Entertaining"
NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- My Damn Channel, a leading entertainment studio and distributor of premium videos by top talent, today announced that they were voted one of TIME Magazine's Top 50 Websites of 2011. My Damn Channel was listed as one of the Top 5 sites in the music and video category with HBO GO, Howcast, Turntable.fm, and 8tracks.
My Damn Channel joins the ranks of companies like Groupon, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, The Onion and Netflix who have made this list in previous years. The 2011 selection process began with TIME Magazine editors nominating sites to make this year's list. The 50 best websites were determined by a vote and TIME's technology writer and the founder and editor of TIME's Technologizer, Harry McCracken, provided the editorial commentary.
"We're honored and humbled to be recognized by one of the world's top news sources," said Rob Barnett, Founder/CEO of My Damn Channel. "For 4 years, we've built our business giving top talent the chance to deliver excellent, original video directly to their fans. This feels a little bit like nailing a perfect score on the SATs and our artists deserve all the credit."
TIME Magazine said: "Brevity is the soul of the wit at My Damn Channel, a video site where almost everything is entertaining and nothing runs for much more than five minutes. It features short-form sitcoms like Versailles (with Fred Willard, Patricia Heaton and William H. Macy), stuff by dependably funny people such as Harry Shearer and Bruce McCall, an in-your-face instructional show called You Suck at Photoshop and the self-explanatory Cookin' with Coolio. More professional than YouTube and less schlocky than much of what's on the networks and cable, My Damn Channel is damn good TV."
