I'd be glad to see more pinball on TV.
Also, wanted to chime in on the whole "making money from YouTube" discussion. A handful of people here know I'm a musician with a (somewhat size-able) YouTube channel - 75k Subscribers and 4 Million views. (Not saying this to sound cool, just sharing to give legitimate insight).
I won't go too deep into this, but Todd's comment was correct. Unless you're getting at least a million views per video, there's no money from ad revenue worthwhile on the platform.
I'm lucky enough to have done collab videos with some top music YouTubers, and my total view count in videos I've done with them on their channels actually adds up to about 40 million views. So I literally know first hand that even with that many views, the money from advertising specifically just isn't anything crazy.
Now, what YouTube IS great for is building an audience, as well as working directly with company sponsorship (ad placement/reviews). So the real opportunity is also in Todd continuing to grow his channel, and then using his viewership from there to potentially catch the attention of a cable channel.
Best of luck to him no matter what, the more quality pinball content on YouTube the better!
