Internet Killed Television is commonly known by its fan base as CTFxC which stands for Charles Trippy Family Core (formerly Friend Core). As of February 10, 2012, the series has 564,068 subscribers, making it the second most subscribed reporter channel on YouTube. The web series gathers an average of 150,000 views per episode, which brings the show to have over 244,544,160 total upload views.
The web-series also refers to itself as a “home-made reality show” due to its format of afirst person perspective that directly follows the Trippys’ activities with a typical video-blogging (vlogging) style of the couple filming both of their surroundings including their dogs, Marley and Zoey. Internet Killed Television also has its own website which features embedded versions of each day’s vlog.
Furthermore, the Trippys additionally broadcast live shows upon the Internet throughBlogTV. Much like their web series, these live shows attract a large audience, with Trippy’s account (which they use for the live streams) being the second most subscribed account on BlogTV, holding over 17,820 subscribers. During live shows, they also give away free items to the viewers. Charles and Alli have over 1,000 vlogs on their channel, making one vlog a day.
