Youtube.com is getting quite the reputation these days. In addition to offering up an eclectic mix of old TV shows and fan videos, the site is currently host to the unaired pilot, Nobody's Watching. The comedy, which was produced for the 2005-2006 TV season, wasn't picked up for the WB's fall slate. However, you can now get a chance to check out the show (in 3 parts) by clicking here.

More than 330,000 YouTube views later, the scrapped show about a pair of regular guys who are hired to create a sitcom is picking up buzz and renewed interest from the TV networks. One of the show's creators, Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Spin City), told The New York Times that the head of NBC Entertainment wanted to take another look at the show. If "Nobody's Watching" is resuscitated, (and that's a BIG if), this could mark a huge change in the way pilots are tested. And if the show isn't picked up, at least Lawrence can take solice in the fact that people were "watching".

Comments:
I watched "Nobody's Watching" on YouTube and it is an okay show...pretty amusing, sometimes too dry, but worth the consideration from NBC.
