I've seen a few with 'tube' at the end that are doing well for their niche.

Success? When did YouTube.com actually start to make a profit?

Like every other online success story YouTube.com's success was followed by 1,000s - if not 10s of 1,000s - of copycat domain registrations. However, if a company as savvy as Google is having trouble making a profit "with the concept/domain" I somewhat doubt that any other person/entity would find themselves making a profit just because they named their site ()Tube.tld or You().com.

Those two guys who sold youtube are sitting on a small pile of dough that I sure would like to have and consider a successful outcome.

YouP o r n .com has done well in shaking up that industry.

There are a bunch of adult versions that have succeeded. I can't think of many other niches though.
