Best of the web to help stop binge watching bad TV?

My wife and I have a 6-month-old who goes to bed quite early (not complaining) which means we have lots of evening time at home these days. We have Apple TV and while air playing something last week - I thought, hmmm, maybe we can make a night of this?!?!
So, we've decided that Tuesday nights are web-stream nights. We are looking for specific videos (or sites that have great ones) that are any of the following: Educational like any number of videos on vsauce
, thought-provoking like videos on The School of Life
site or even
hilarious like Drunk History

We are not opposed to ridiculously cute animal videos or general silliness but we'd like to err on the side of feeling good about the fact that we'd spent the time watching it.
What we don't want:
Nothing too grotesque, too violent, too intensely traumatic - we both hate horror films and I can't make it through one of the Sarah McLachlan ASPCA videos. Things that show torture, abuse, etc - I just can't handle it (even in cases where I might be better for being able to but alas, I will never see The Cove
was the last movie I saw that involved sexual violence because it WRECKS me).
Past questions seem to focus on specific areas of interest (videos for kids, music videos, etc.) and we're looking for a complete variety of goodness. I think that's it - looking forward to the answers!
What've you got?
