Progressive digital news service The Young Turks Network (TYT) launched a linear channel on YouTube‘s live television service in May with a slate of four shows — its largest concurrent programming addition ever.
Now, the company is adding three shows to its lineup — for a grand total of roughly a dozen YouTube TV series. They include: Reasonably Shure, a 30-minute weekly interview program hosted by seasoned political analyst Michael Shure; Rebel HQ, in which host Cenk Uygur will cover the grassroots movement and candidates running to unseat establishment Democrats; and The Jimmy Dore Show, in which the political satirist will skewer corporate-controlled media. While Shure’s show is brand new, Rebel HQ and The Jimmy Dore Show are already running elsewhere across TYT’s distribution network.
Reasonably Shure will air Tuesdays at 4:30 pm ET; Rebel HQ will air Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays at 11:00 pm; and The Jimmy Dore Show will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 4:00 pm. They join the four existing shows announced by TYT upon its YouTube TV launch: John Iadarola’s The Damage Report, Ana Kasparian’s #NoFilter, Brett Erlich’s The Happy Half Hour, and Old School Sports.
In addition to its television foray, TYT Network — which clocks 200 million views per month across all platforms — also recently expanded distribution through the launch of an audio network in partnership with podcast giant Panoply Media.
