Michael is a pioneer in the way he has used the internet to not only entertain, but inspire. Michael won the YouTube award for Best Commentary in 2007. In 2008, he was one of the NewTeeVee Breakout Stars of the Year. (He actually won a YouTube bowling trophy once too). In December of 2008, he was featured on the front page of the New York Times and made several TV appearances to discuss his success and the YouTube Partnership Program. He has appeared on CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, FoxNews, the CW, BloombergTV, and E! He also hosts “Dear Buck” where he gives occasionally good advice to his viewers and Live Broadcasts on BlogTV.com every Thursday night at 7pm Eastern.
In real life, Buck lives in New England and enjoys going to Broadway shows, Diet Dr. Pepper, whitening his teeth (waiting for Crest White Strips to call!) and hanging out with his five small dogs. Michael was a very strange child who grew up to be a very strange adult. He had a subscription to TV Guide at the age of five and was devastated to find out that Julie and Barbara were not really sisters on One Day at a Time. His early years were spent acting like Batman or Wonder Woman (on a good day) and he also liked pretending to be all three Charlie Angles!

New episodes are posted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 3pm Eastern. What the Buck has over 1 million subscribers, 300 million views (All Time Top 100 Most Subscribed and Viewed on all of YouTube)!
