Sketch comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele guest starred in the latest installment of Epic Rap Battles of History and were the first TV regulars to appear on the series. Key and Peele's showdown, however, was not just notable as another high-profile Erb episode. The comedy duo's large online presence is redefining what it means to be a YouTube star, and the Erb appearance only furthers that assertion. Key and Peele ply their trade on a self-titled Comedy Central show which, in its season two finale, drew 1.14 million viewers, the highest total for the show in three weeks. This seems like a fairly pedestrian number, but Key and Peele's main viewership is coming online. The show is blowing up the Internet, receiving more than 100 million views on Comedy Central's YouTube hub. New sketches are posted regularly on the channel, and most of them receive more than one million views. »
