UPN premiers "Everybody Hates Chris" on Google Video

"Everybody Hates Chris" premieres this Thursday on TV in the USA...but the first episode will premier today on Google Video.

According to Reuters, "The entire pilot of the new television show, which is based on the childhood of comedian Chris Rock, is available via Google Video at http://video.google.com/chris beginning on Monday.

The announcement comes as Web search companies like Google and rival Yahoo Inc. work to strike content deals with companies that produce news, television shows and films."

I tried to access it on Google Video, but as of this evening, it was not yet available.

This could be an interesting bridge between TV and computers. I would like to see more videoblogs available, from documentaries to travel diaries. Another application for Google Video could be a resource for online learning.
