You know YT, if you wanted to force us to use this damn new channel layout then maybe you should iron out some pob/bugs in it. Like how when I'm trying to find a video on your new channels, Every page after page 2 has this "funny" idea of having half of the videos from the previous page and half being videos that should be on the page I'm looking at and it does this until you get to the last page of videos.
Also, Where's the button to look at and delete subscribers who channels are dead? If you're going to merge the subscribers and friends into one list (And 99.9% of the people who use this site think this is a crappy idea) I would think that page where you look at your subscribers and delete the ones who channels are dead would be something to keep. Then again, I'm not a drone at Google trying to find new ways to piss everyone off now am I?
P.S. For anyone asking about the comment area in the new channel pages... Feed page, view tab, Comments only.
