Yahoo Screen has launched a new show on the Yahoo Comedy channel: The Onion’s Extremely Accurate History Of The Internet. The show is produced by Yahoo Studios and (of course) The Onion.
“The new this show is a comical satirical documentary that reveals the past of the world wide web,” a Yahoo spokesperson tells WebProNews.
Here’s the official description:
The Internet finally gets some well deserved attention. “The Onion’s Extremely Accurate History of the Internet” will reveal the past of this vast and glorious data network, starting with the carved stone modems of our African ancestors, through the wifi enabled monks of Medieval Europe, to the porn-laden web of today.
The channel is also renewing four out of its original six shows (Burning Love, First Dates With Toby Harris, Odd Nes, and Sketchy). The shows will launch over the next several weeks, and will be programmed throughout the Yahoo network and on Yahoo Screen, the spokesperson says.
