I don't want to sound like the boy who cried Brian Wolfe, I know the DOZens of DOL readers remember way back on June 9th when I wrote a fantastic blog about Nathan For You leaving Hulu.
That was back pre-ub**Dozie, I had all the time in the world to inform people that one of the funniest shows of all-time was leaving its streaming home, Hulu.
By the time 10 days had passed, Nathan For You was still on Hulu and I was busy telling strangers how busy I was; while seeing if anybody would ask why I was playing Christopher Cross' Grammy winning, #1 hit "Sailing" on a continuous loop?
With my mind focused on the roads and never-never land, I never followed up to tell the good news that the Streaming Gods decided to spare Nathan for You's life for the time being. We all know how quickly the internet news cycle goes, we were on to the next one like HOV. If forced hysterectomies can't stay in the public's consciousness for more than a day, poo-flavored ice cream and chili suits don't stand a chance.
Because I care about you and the well-being of society, I am going to continue to do my public service work by alerting you that this time, Nathan For You's move is as serious as lying about a doctors appointment to skip line; Nathan For You is leaving Hulu in one week for greener pastures at HBO MAX.
The move makes sense, when HBO MAX acquired South Park, it felt like only a matter of time before they got more Comedy Central content. If cord cutting has taught us anything, it's how broadcasting rights work. Next week, Nathan For You, along with the following Comedy Central programs linked in an excerpt from deadline will be available on HBO MAX.
If you're like me and use somebody else's HBO MAX, (thanks Dad!) you're in luck! You will be able to stream Nathan For You AND Chappelle's Show. Sadly, nobody ever said anything about Christopher Cross all summer long. After Mookie Betts' 13 year extension with the Dodgers, nobody saying anything about hearing "Sailing" three straight times was the biggest disappointment of my summer. In closing, you have one week to watch Nathan For You on Hulu before it shacks up with Sesame Street and Class Action Park (A #MUSTWATCH documentary). This is low key great news because HBO MAX doesn't subject users to commercials like those monsters at Hulu.
