Internet users can find the pilot episode of the show -- based on the childhood of comedian Chris Rock -- at Google's video site at http://video. google.com. The show originally aired last week on UPN and contains no commercials when viewed on Google. It will stay on Google's site until the second episode of the show airs Thursday.

``It offers UPN the ability to make the program accessible to millions of people who use Google,'' said Peter Chane, senior business product manager for Google Video. ``Hopefully, it's a sign of things to come.''

Interesting. I wonder what other shows might start being streamed. Could be interesting.

Worthy posting that :roll:

Google seem to be doing far more than anybody to kinda 'make the web better.'

Google Books, Google Earth, Froogle and now Google Video :)

Following on from this, CBS will be streaming the next 2 episodes of its very good alien invasion series Threshold (http://www.tv.com/tracking/viewer.html&ref_id=32983&tid=76513&ref_type=101) on its website. Admittedly they won't be on the site until 5 days after they originally air and the series is starting on Sky in the UK this month but its progress. :thumbs:
