Tonight, I'm taping the first episode of the #WilWheatonProject , and it will finally be on the air tomorrow. As far as I know, it will also be online at Syfy.com and probably Hulu and Hulu+, but I'm not sure how soon after it airs. I also think it's available as a subscription in iTunes.

I really want everyone in the world to see my show, because I'm super proud of it and I think a lot of you will enjoy it. If you have to use alternative means to see it, I'm not going to try to stop you. BUT -- if you can watch it in some way that the network can score (on broadcast or via one of the legally-supported websites), please do that, because the more people who watch it in a way the network can count, the more likely it is they will order a full season of the show.

Hope you have a great season +Wil Wheaton

Edit: Looks like your only competition is Tosh.0. I'm sure you can take up some of his audience. 
 
Love to see it but it looks like it might be US only 
 
Can I assume there will be no legit way to watch this online outside of the US anytime soon?
 
Hopefully the numbers of viewers using unsupported means to watch will give the production company and the international distributors the hint that maybe they should get it out there. Would be nice to be able to watch it legitimately on Space or some other channel up here in Canada.
 
Good luck on your new project!  Much better than being a scientist with a blond girl turning into murderous gorilla!  :-)  Love your work on Big Bang!
 
Technical question: what knot do you use for your tie?
 
Thanks for the reminder! DVR set!
 
+Frode Hauge try the browser plugin "Hola", you can watch Geo-blocked Content (from like Syfy.com) outside of the US 
 
I'm firing up my proxies, but I think Hulu blocks a huge range of known proxy ip addresses since a few weeks. I'll give it a try.
 
Congrats Wil. I'll be sure to check it out. 
 
Can the network count Hulu+? That's where I'd watch the show
 
Amazon Prime? Google Play? 
 
I'm going to be at a 3D printing meetup out of town.  I sure hope it's available online when I get home!

Go get 'em, Wil!
 
Looks interesting! I try to make sure that I catch it on TV. If not, I'll try to catch it on Hulu or someting.
 
Good luck on the new venture +Wil Wheaton. If it's in hulu+ I'll be sure to take a look. Not a Nielsen household, sorry to report. 
 
Break a leg! Question... Which would be better for scoring (what counts now a days??), non Nielson family cable viewing live or via syfy website? 
 
Any idea if it will screen in the UK on syfy.

+Wil Wheaton, will the show be aired on any Canadian networks? I know Showcase & Space often rebroadcast things that are on Syfy but haven't seen any mention about your new show :-(
 
I have been looking forward to this! Best of luck towards a successful launch of this endeavour, Wil!  
 
Hulu Plus typically sucks for SyFy shows. It took forever for me to catch up on Sanctuary, Eureka, and Warehouse 13.
 
SyFy will also be rerunning it during the week.
 
Warp 9.5, phasers on stun, engage!
 
Best of luck with the new show!
 
Saw the commercial... I thought to myself, "I swear I know that guy from some where..." Honestly, research your online presence as far as reairing. SyFy and Hulu do not have that cozy of a relationship.
 
If only I had cable... Any chance it will be on Hulu?
 
+Wil Wheaton for us Canadian cord cutters is there a way to help out in terms of engagement? With geek and sundry I can share, +1 and comment to support you.
 
When will you reprise your role as a time traveling interdimensional... JUST HELP BRING SOME STAR TREK SHOW BACK PLEASE! 
 
I've already got it scheduled on the TiVo just in case my plans that night run late. I'm looking forward to it!
 
I'm looking for it on iTunes and it doesn't seem available in the Canadian store - anyone know a Canadian source?
 
+Angela Misri You can use services like +Unblock-Us to gain access to content outside of your country.  I use it to change where i'm from almost everyday :)  I will definitely be in the US on the 27th to watch +Wil Wheaton's show
 
I have my DVR set to record every episode!
 
Already set to record. Thanks for the heads up though.
 
If it's on hulu plus, I'll be watching! :-) +Wil Wheaton is every where, and I love it! 
 
I will gladly watch on SyFy. 
 
Hopefully we can see it in the UK
 
It's on tomorrow at 9CST on syfy. Awesome. 
 
My tivo is set to record as a season pass.  Looking forward to seeing what you have done.
 
As usual those living outside the US have to look for 'alternative' methods :(
 
Setup my season pass! Good luck. 
 
You tape the episodes the day before?  I'm surprised.  That's some quick turn-around.  I thought you guys would tape the episode at least a week ahead of time.
 
Does DVR count, I hardly ever watch anything when it comes on, I just record everything.
 
TiVo season pass already set!
Brian D
 
I will make sure to watch it, even though I usually stream everything.
 
Good Luck with your show Mr. Wheaton.
 
Best of luck, Wil! Looking forward to seeing it!
 
+Frode Hauge Get a chrome plugin called Hola, it will allow you to fake a US IP and watch it via Hulu which will help the ratings.
 
Best wishes for a gang-buster reception. (And yes, my DVR is set to series)
 
Lets hope this goes better than "Joe Rogan Questions Everything".  Syfy has a way of... making good things bad :(  But hopefully my low expectations will be a good thing. 
 
I will be checking it out.  :)
 
Best of luck to you, Wil. I'll have to check to see if I can stream via SciFy. Just remember - intensity, intensity, intensity, intensity even if the scene doesn't call for it.
 
If anyone comes up with a way we can support this internationally let us know!
 
I have SyFy Channel on Foxtel in Australia and cannot find the Wil Wheaton Project in the TV Guide. Disappointing. Sharknado is being repeated a couple of times over the next week, so there's that. Anyone know if there's another legal method of seeing this show in Oz?
 
Record today, broadcast tomorrow. Quick.
Buy coffee for the editing folks.
 
Looking forward to it, sure to be epic!
 
freakin syfy is known for yanking any good shows that they show on Hulu+ :/
 
Got the DVR set to record it. Best wishes!
 
Looking forward to watching you again! (does that sound creepy-ish? lol) ... hopefully Hulu carries it asap!
 
Best of luck on the new show...I am looking forward to it!
 
Just point me to the commercial filled version and I'll be there! :)
 
I'll check what the iTunes and Hulu options are and give you a ratings click there since I refuse to watch scifi channel and give them any kind of support but will support the show and the production company.
 
the Will Wheaton project project.  Check I'll be watching.
 
All I know about the show is that Wil Wheaton thinks he's a "big deal." That's not a very compelling reason for me to watch.
Can someone provide another reason?
 
I Always love the movie Outsider.s My favorite Movie Your My favorite Actor
 
Can.t wait to see your show Wil Wheaton
 
Japan here, but I'll do my best to watch in the option closest to legal and scorable!

I just set the DVR to record the whole series. I'm looking forward to watching it.
 
I will be checking for it on Syfy.com tomorrow night. 

Have a great show!
 
I'm hoping to do a review of the show for Slice of SciFi after tomorrow's premiere episode.
 
Good luck, I hope it's a hit!
 
I got to be like # 1001

But I wanna draw it like 1-0-0-1 so it looks like a TIE Bomber ,-)

Congrats +Wil Wheaton 
DJ SPY
 
Will it be available in Google Play?
 
Set my cable box for Syfy at 10:30 Tue. Looking forward to a great series!
 
You are still shiny and handsome, Wil Wheaton.
 
Congratz and break a leg!  Will def. watch!
 
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow...
 
As with many others, thought I'd chime in: the DVR is set. I'm looking forward to this one.
 
+Arnim Sommer About that tie. From the angle of the front-over piece I'd guess a four-in-hand knot. But that's only from the above photo so...
 
+Wil Wheaton you might want to mention that if people are outside the US, they can use a US VPN and watch it on the websites you mentioned. There's a free Android app my wife uses to watch US shows on the network sites legally. I forget the name at the moment but it's a popular app.
 
if Sheldon is on the show it would be great
 
While you're in there, can you get them to change the name back to Sci-Fi?  Please?  You know you want to...
 
Congratulations.... it's gotten to the point where I occasionally forget that you had anything to do with Star Trek.  I remember you more vividly for a lot of other things now.
 
Wait, you can record an episode and it will be ready to air the very next day? Man, I must go about video editing all wrong.
 
I work at 5AM tomorrow morning, but I think I can get away with staying up to watch WWP.
 
" If you have to use alternative means to see it, I'm not going to try to stop you. BUT -- if you can watch it in some way that the network can score (on broadcast or via one of the legally-supported websites), please do that"

Is there a list of websites? I don't get SyFy.
 
Good luck Will! Can't wait to see it!!! 
 
Watching!  What's the hastag to tweet about this?
 
FWIW, Hulu+ says it does not have the rights to the show, but if you are a SyFy subscriber, you can stream it by entering your cable provider login information.
 
DVR is set. But I'm sure I'll watch it live.
 
I set up the DVR last week, just to make sure I did not miss this. Will likely watch it when it shows, but I am making sure not to miss it.
 
Yep, set up the "reminder" last week and staying up past my normal bedtime to catch it.
 
I wish the Space network in Canada would pick it up.
 
Very much looking forward to this +Wil Wheaton! I hope that this is just the first of many more episodes. 
 
Oh, I Wil be watching! Lol. Can't stop me. Muahahahahahahaha.😹😹😹
 
Ok, the Lysa/Mortal Kombat shot was awesome! Wil, your show rocks!
 
Just caught the show, great job Wil!
 
Right on just watched your show ..... it was great!!
Thanks
 
I will be watching it when I get off duty.  Thank god for a VPN when you're overseas.  I can't wait!!!!!!
 
HULU doesn't have it and their page says they don't have to rights to stream it either BUT luckily I'm watching it on-demand with Verizon FIOS.  Hulu hates you +Wil Wheaton but our overlord Verizon loves you.
 
Really enjoyed the show last night. Can't wait for next week.
 
You knock them dead Will. You still got. The talking dead Guy makes for the blot. Looking forward to your next show. Get your big bang buddies to come on.
 
Well +Wil Wheaton, if they ever call ME for the ratings... I will tell them I watched your show live, using my satellite tv provider, and that I sat through ALL the commercials, and enjoyed them very much, thank-you! (Even IF I have to download it through a private tracker... :-p )
 
I had to DVR your show last night because it came on after my bedtime, and I watched it when I got home from work this afternoon. The first episode was awesome!  This feels like the beginning of something amazing, and I'm so excited for you. 
 
Before the airing, SyFy ran a good half dozen short commercial 'bits' -- they were good.  I kept thinking two things:  (1)  This looks like it's "The Soup/Talk Soup" from the Comedy Channel but geared toward the Science Fiction audience and (2) "Don't be a dick,"  the Wheaton quote to live by.     

Saw the show.  
(1)  I know it's only a half hour show but... slow yourself just a touch.  The rushed feel was off putting.  And it did not 'feel' like the Will Wheaton from TableTop.
(2)  Tell your studio crew they don't have to laugh at everything -- it's worse then a laugh track.
(3)  Really had hoped you were doing a full review of the weeks Sci Fi offerings but.. guess you can only get to so much in the ??? 18 minutes ??? of actual air time.

So, I will come back for more.  Still whispering the "Don't be a dick." mantra and enjoying this new enterprise.  
 
So this is like The Soup , but for geeks?
where do I sign up?
 
+Wil Wheaton I would love to watch your show, but I'm a cord cutter: unless SyFy puts a stream up somewhere, how can I watch it?  Note that the Hulu stream won't work on a TV (unless you've got a long HDMI cable... which I do, but that's not the point :) )
 
It was adorable, loved it! Tell Syfy to move it earlier so I can stay up late enough to watch :) #theolds  
 
Good luck with your show! So long as you keep bringing me episodes of Tabletop!
 
Loved it, by the way.  Caught it when it aired -- really enjoyed it.  :)
 
This being the internet, here's my opinion (virtually worthless, I know):  I was expecting something different, I guess.  Not the generic green screen "Talk Soup" show that's been done to death.  Pity, really.  Was hoping for something fresh.  But best of luck with it, regardless.  (I'll stick with the occasional Tabletop and TBBT.)
 
watched it here from Canada,on Hulu I enjoyed it, looking forward to more
 
will that was good. expect to be canceled 
 
Wow - not available on iTunes, Google Play, MS Video or any other download service?  Don't have cable, so there is no way to watch it.  :(
 
Caught this on Hulu, and it was good. Keep it up!
 
I'm so angry I can't watch it here in OZ. Grumbly Grrrr-ing n stuff.
Dave T
 
Thanks for posting this +Wil Wheaton .  I'm one of those cord-cutters who would have probably grabbed this off of a streaming site.  I'll make sure I watch it on my Roku directly on the main site.  God knows that companies make stupid cancellation decisions (ie: Fox cancelling Firefly)... so I'll make sure SyFy can see I watched. :)
 
not that this is the same subject, but it's scary/depressing that the actor who played the kid on Star Trek is now older than you were when the show started. I'm so old...
