Not more of this shit… Epic Meal Time is getting its own show on G4

Why? ¬†This doesn’t need to be on TV. We need LESS overconsumption, not more. But then, I guess TV execs never claimed any kind of social responsibility. See Jersey Shore, I Love New York, The Bachelor, etc if you need evidence.¬†

G4 has closed a deal to make a pilot with the team behind the hit YouTube cooking show created by Harley Morenstein and friends. The web effort, which regularly features outlandishly high-calorie dishes, has become an Internet phenomenom since its Sept. 2010 launch.

To date, web episodes centered on copious amounts of bacon and other meat products have collectively garnered 275 million upload views. Similarly impressive, EpicMealTime ranks as the No. 12 most subscribed to YouTube Channel of all time with nearly 2 million subscribers.

The cable pilot will be produced by Comcast Entertainment Studios, with Jay James (Guliana & Bill, The Soup), Gregory Heller, KP Anderson (The Soup, Web Soup) and Morenstein attached as executive producers. Darren Morenstein and Evan Rimer are on board as co-executive producers, with Jake Farrow as a consulting producer.
