Just a month after posting unaired episodes of TBL: The Beautiful Life on YouTube, Ashton Kutcher has surpassed his goal.
CNN reports that executive producer of the series had a half a million (view) goal that he set for the episodes on series when he made the executive decision to put it online.
Ashton shared in a vid message posted earlier, “If we put this thing on the Web more than half a million people will watch it on the Web. I want this to be the first show ever that gets more viewers on the Web than it did on terrestrial television.”
Starlet Sara Paxton shared, “It’s pretty exciting for our friends and family to be able to watch the episodes that never aired. After it was cancelled, a lot of fans were reaching out on Facebook and Twitter and asking where they could see the rest of the episodes. Now that it lives on the Internet, who knows what it will turn into. I don’t know what to expect out of it.”
The five episodes combined have been viewed about 2.7 million times in the three weeks they have been available online in their entirety. With that said, Karey Burke (Ashton’s business partner) revealed that they’re considering continuing to keep the show alive.
Karey shared, “Now that the airing of the episodes on YouTube has been as successful as it has been, there are conversations about continuing with the show in some form or fashion. We haven’t had any discussions with the CW about bringing the show back, but anything is possible. There certainly could be a short form version of the show that could live on the Web if our studio partners were interested in that and enough of the cast were interested.
