From Barely Legal Pawn to Obama Expressions: This Week’s Top 5 Viral TV Clips

5by_mobile_app_screenshot_304x200In this Friday’s installment of our partnership with 5by, the video discovery platform that curates the web’s best viral videos, we take a look at the top five videos of the week from the platform’s TV category.

Trending this week is a host of clips all either added this week, about a new series, or about a new season. For more on the videos selected, Theo Tabah, 5by’s Head of Content:

It’s a mashup of all the greatest bits of TV this week, we couldn’t decide on just one awesome theme so we had to pick an assortment of the best. A little late night, a little shark week and a little Emmy’s, all coming together to make up this week’s top five viral TV clips.

Some big names star in an unexpected, but magnificent skit to promote the upcoming Emmy Awards, apparently Bryan Cranston can play any role. We decided to showcase our favorite clip from Shark Week, which involves a diver doing something you didn’t think was possible to a reef shark. Team ‘Late Night’ brought on the laughs at others expense this week. Jimmy Fallon makes fun of Obama’s expressions, Conan makes fun of Buzzfeed lists and finally, John Oliver makes fun of, and also educates us on, American police tactics.
