If you know who Ryan Hansen is, you’ll find Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television pretty amusing
The YouTube Red series starring the former Veronica Mars star is, says Daniel Fienberg, “a bloated and sloppy and amateurish in a way that occasionally rises to the level of "gleeful," but it's occasionally hilarious and delivers a much more scathing, granular and detailed satire of the television business and Hollywood fame than the facile yuks of Showtime's departed, overpraised Episodes. If anything, Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television is too inside baseball and too far up its own butt, but if you're a small screen obsessive, there's definitely amusement in this industry “

Don’t bet on YouTube Red and Facebook Watch disrupting the TV industry
The entry of the two tech companies in original programming isn’t going to kill the TV industry, says Tim Goodman. “Using Facebook doesn't mean people will watch TV on Facebook,” he says. “Watching YouTube videos doesn't mean people will pay to watch TV on YouTube or pay to subscribe to it, either. There are no analytics, no long-running sample size that indicates people will watch anything on either platform that is fundamentally different than what they choose to watch there now — up to and including pricey scripted fare.”
