Listened to a podcast where Rogan said he was a C level celebrity at best...but is that really true?
I think Hollywood doesn't understand the internet. I think they live in their own bubble, detached from the rest of the world.
I know some of what I'm about to say may not be verifiable, but Rogan claims he gets like 30 million downloads a month. Add to that YouTube views per month and you probably breach 35-40 million pretty easily ( e.g. the Peterson podcast last month currently sits at 2.6 million views).
I believe all of late night on TV is getting like 8 million views per week total right now. I'm trying to track down the exact stats...and that doesn't really speak to original views.
Sooo...yea is Rogan really c list, given the fact this is only a fraction of his endeavors? Or is it the fact that Hollywood itself is slowly slipping into b-level status itself, and really doesn't understand that the internet is now a bigger deal than it is?
