John Krasinski’s ‘Some Good News’ Is So Popular It’s Getting Picked Up By CBS

by Angela Andaloro

John Krasinski’s feel-good web series is moving on up. In late March, The Office alum decided to bring an idea he’s had for years to life.

He self-funded and produced Some Good News, a YouTube series dedicated to spreading positive and uplifting stories.

The series became a viral sensation as folks stuck at home appreciated every ounce of positivity the world had left. Some recent news about Some Good News is rubbing fans the wrong way, however.

Networks apparently loved the idea of Some Good News so much that they started a bidding war. CBS All Access has reigned victorious, but that means many viewers won’t get to see what happens next.

For many, the beauty of Some Good News was that it was free. Now that it is stuck behind a paywall, fans may not flock to it the same way.

Added to that is the fact that John’s wholesome presence as the host will be replaced. He will step into a production role, leading a new host to be announced.

“Could not be more excited and proud to be partnering with CBS/Viacom to be able to bring Some Good News to so many more people!” John said Thursday in a statement. “From the first episode, our goal was to create a news show dedicated entirely to good news. Never did I expect to be joining the ranks of such a historic news organization as CBS.”
