Dropout TV is a streaming service created by College Humor in late 2018. The service focuses on comedic and fandom-focused content, with some of its most well-known series being the Dungeons and Dragons series Dimension 20, the fandom trivia game Um, Actually and the improv comedy show Game Changer. The network has a roster of comedians who appear in multiple shows and sometimes attracts guest appearances from other internet-famous comedians.


On September 26th, 2018, College Humor released Dropout TV, a subscription service that would feature its original programming.[1] Sam Reich, the company's head of video, explained that the service allowed the team at College Humor to make whatever they liked without having to conform to YouTube's guidelines while still assuring a revenue stream.

The network launched with the pre-established YouTube series Um, Actually, the Dungeons and Dragons series Dimension 20, the animated series Cartoon Hell and the comedy series See Plum Run. Over the following years, the network released a new show roughly every one or two months.

While many DropoutTV shows have only run for one season, several have become staples of the service. These include Dimension 20, Um, Actually, Breaking News: No Laugh Newsroom and Game Changer.[2] As of November 2022, the service costs $5.99 a month.

Online Presence

While it's unknown how well the service is performing in 2022, it initially launched to great success in 2018 when it was reported that users spent an average of 31 minutes per visit to the network at a clip of 3.5 visits a week.[3]

Furthermore, clips of the network's series posted to YouTube have tended to perform very well. Um, Actually episodes released to YouTube after premiering on Dropout tend to receive several hundred thousand views each.[4] Dimension 20 will usually upload the first episode of each campaign to YouTube, and these also receive several hundred thousand views each.[5]

The network also has a significant YouTube Shorts presence. For example, the Game Changer Shorts channel has over 1.54 million subscribers (example shown below, left).[6] The three free episodes of the show released on YouTube have all accrued between 2.8 and 6.9 million views (example shown below, right).
