Planet Nerd Episode 3

Tomorrow night is a landmark in television, for that is when Planet Nerd Episode 3 goes to air. After a rollercoaster week which saw us become the #1 comedian on YouTube (take THAT kitten-that-almost-says-hello!), we return with our biggest show yet!

  • Dan Walmsley reports pseudo-live from Steve Jobs’ keynote speech at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference
  • Paul Verhoeven and Ben McKenzie investigate the brainy world of Zombies
  • Simon Barber brings us the Weekly Whedon
  • Musical parody heaven from Anyone for Tennis
  • And so much more!

As usual, you can catch us at 10pm on Channel 31 Melbourne. If you miss that, we’re on again at 1am Saturday night

Point and shoot to stardom

Update: We’re also the #5 most-viewed Channel on ALL OF YOUTUBE today. Craziness!

So, I’m the #1 viewed comedian on YouTube today (well, technically, Planet Nerd is). Which sketch was it, do you think? The hilarious iPhone sketch? Karin Muiznieks’ touching song that just does add up?

Nope. It’s a video of John Carmack talking about the next-generation ID graphics engine.

38,000 views and counting. Go Carmack! That guy is the biggest nerd ever.
