Rob and Doug: 'Ford Nation' heading to millions of 'folks' on YouTube

Bob and Doug McKenzie, err, Rob and Doug Ford will finally be getting their reality show Ford Nation on the air. But it won't be by broadcast or cable.

The Brothers Ford – including, of course, Toronto's always-embattled mayor Rob – will be getting their own YouTube show, which will debut on Feb. 10, 2014. The show will have the same name as it did last fall, when Sun's TV network in Canada ran one episode.

(The news also comes on the same day as Toronto Star reporter Robyn Doolittle – the reporter who saw Ford's alleged crack cocaine video months before the Toronto Police or anyone else did and has penned a new book about Ford and his T.O. office, Crazy Town: The Rob Ford Storygoes on Jon Stewat's The Daily Show on Comedy Central.)

In a promo released on Thursday, the Ford brothers tease each other about the size of their bellies, Doug says the word "folks", and Rob Ford asks, "Please judge me on my record, not my personal life."

(The irony that he asks that while he's about to air himself and his personal life on the world's most-watched online network has apparently not hit him.)
