Fans Express Concerns About John Krasinski Selling 'Some Good News' to ViacomCBS

John Krasinski tearfully signed off as the host of Some Good News, his weekly feel-good webseries that launched during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

The 40-year-old star told fans in his final broadcast that “we’re taking a break for now, but there is more to come! Stay tuned.”

Just days later, it was revealed that ViacomCBS had bought the rights to the series for television and that John would no longer host.

“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!” he said in a statement.

Some fans though, were not too happy about the purchase and move to television and voiced their concerns about it on Twitter.

“So he made 8 YouTube videos comprised largely of unpaid contributions from fans, sold the brand to a major conglomerate, and isn’t even going to make it anymore?” one fan tweeted. “Just cashed out? Does this rub anyone else the wrong way, kinda?”

Another added, “I can’t believe you sold it. It’s not about the good news, it’s about the profit.”

The Some Good News Twitter account did address some of the fan concerns.
