The announcement was made today by Lauren Zalaznick, president of Bravo.

"The idea of 'viral videos' is really reaching critical mass and has become a new art form. We have now migrated this new generation of arts entertainment content that's on the web right over to Bravo in a filtered, fun, pop cultural 'Bravo' way," said Zalaznick. "These viral videos are sometimes funny, sometimes strange, but all somehow represent the eclectic, collective experience of the current state of entertainment these days. Bravo should be the first place people turn to watch these videos when they debut for the first time on television."
