This is "Online Nation" co-host Stevie Ryan outside her comfort zone: When the line on the teleprompter reads "revolting beverage," she delivers it by sticking her fingers in her mouth and gagging. A viral video of a cat she introduces triggers her to meow for effect, then to bark when the director requests that she go with it sans meow.

Stevie Ryan, the Los Angeles actress whose tough-chick character, Little Loca, emerged as one of the first stars of YouTube, is making the leap from the desktop to the small screen. Ryan was named Thursday one of four hosts of the new CW reality series "Online Nation," making her the first YouTube star to land a paid TV gig.

NOT long ago, the Web seemed on the brink of bringing true democracy to entertainment. Through the most-viewed, most-discussed and highest-rated lists of sites like YouTube and Technorati, every Web user was a mini-studio boss, casting his vote for what deserved to be seen and heard. Soon, the Web promised, showbiz bigwigs would no longer shove their wares down the throat of the entertainment consumer!

THERE'S a unicorn protruding from the wall in the lobby of the CW's headquarters in Burbank. A colorful gummy bear sculpture occupies a corner nearby. Dozens of trendy terms -- such as "freeganism," "ghost riding" and "VM-ing" -- are written on one wall in the form of a subway system map. This is not what the offices of a broadcast TV network typically look like. White walls are usually covered with giant photographs of hot stars, such as Kiefer Sutherland and Eva Longoria.

The signals that an infant medium has reached its rambunctious adolescence are probably less clear. But one of them surely must be the ability to gather enough practitioners together to stage large-scale competitions. To be specific: large-scale comedy competitions with police and jail themes.

"Mystery, Alaska" is a film that believes, in the words of hockey player and ladies' man Skank Marden, that "skating and fornicating are the most fun you can have in the winter." While that may or may not be accurate in life, on screen it's half true at best.

Welcome, members of the class of Fall TV 2007. Some of you will "make the grade" and go on to long careers enriching both those who have a piece of you and the strangers whose lives you will touch with your thoughtful drama, thrilling action and/or well-observed comedy -- or just by making a lot of cheap commotion. Others will be gone before the term is over, or has barely begun. But for now, you stand more or less equal.
