I'm not asking for anyone to delude themselves. I just don't think harping on the relative unpopularity of any of the sites is going to encourage them to make the segments any better. Of course there's realistically the more important sites and the less important ones, but using that to try and marginalize certain sites is sort of crass.
 
For the record I agree that the Happy Hour segments are not being filled well every week and could do with a re-think. I'm just addressing the notion that Giant Bomb should be treated as the main attraction, even if they are.

Using the viewing stats for the Happy Hour from the sites is a terrible way to judge how popular they are.  A lot of people who visit one WM site visit others, too, but they aren't going to open the stream for every site they visit.  Screened and Tested are pretty awesome, Comicvine does an okay job, and Giantbomb has a legacy of making absolute crap really interesting.

Members,

As you know, being a Whiskey Media member has it's perks. As you may not know, we're in the process of making the Whiskey Media Store more of a permanent thing. That means new cool shit to buy - but also, more of it. Today we're opening up the new store to members and non-members alike, but you guys are getting first crack at it. You'll have a chance to get your hands on the once available but quickly sold out Giant Bomb Throwback tee, as well as our newest addition to the Whiskey Media gear line, the Tested Blockhead tee. With this member's only discount code and store access code you'll get $5.00 off your purchase. But get in there quick, as we'll be letting the non-subscribers watching our free end of the month Happy Hour know shortly after the show begins that the store is open to everybody. Thank you for your support of Whiskey Media. You keep our lights on, and we appreciate you for it.

Your buddy,

Dan

from your actual Email account not through a PM, have you turned off notifications or something? might be why you don't receive emails from GB, in which case you shouldn't complain about not being in the know.

I might be, but they are presented so badly that I don't think a discussion format works, so don't watch live and skip through now.

that's a bit of a dick thing to say man.  
 
Enjoy GB, but don't shit on the other sites just because you don't like them, they're alright, they cater for their audience which is growing, if you remember back when this site was a year old how many people regularly checked it out, they had a lot of help because Jeff and Ryan were known names, and had a lot pull, Comic Vine is the webs biggest site for Comics, Tested is growing and now a year old, Screened is starting to grow, Anime Vice caters to it's audience and it is quite large for what they do Tom Pinchuk is doing what he can, until Whiskey hires new personalties to run the site, Whiskey is going to expand with two new sites this year. 
 
Don't be such a downer man.

Did read that, but honestly, it doesn't change anything I said. The "for better or worse" excuse doesn't really cut it if the answer is "it's for worse." GB bits, for whatever the reason, are the only thing that make most of it worthwhile. To get people to tune in, you have to basically tack on everyone else to Giant Bomb. It's kind of cruel to say, especially since I love Will Smith and don't mind Screened, but GB is practically what carries these live shows (if not WM as a whole). It doesn't really make it any better.
 
I think the idea of a live show as a membership perk is a cool one, but they still need to actually figure out what to do during these live shows if they're not going to scrap them and redirect the time and energy into other things. Hearing people talk about movies or watch trailers isn't anything special and making an actual segment out of that on something you would usually have to pay for is kind of bizarre. (You could also say the same thing about GB playing video games, but the experience of them playing games is fundamentally different with each game.)
 
I guess that was just a really long way of saying that if they're going to keep spending hours preparing and doing these live shows instead of other things, they need to actually put thought into what the hell they're doing in them. 
 
(And personally, IMO, the biggest problem with these live shows is that they basically just try to make them small 20 minute microcosms of the sites that make up Whiskey Media. It almost feels like a clip show. You could basically take a Quick Look, a chunk of the Screened podcast, any random clip of Will Smith just talking, and add shots of them drinking, and you have a perfect replica of the Happy Hour.)

Of course the GB segments will be better, because they already do content daily that fits the live show. All they have to do is a short-form Quick Look.
