(Via The 463) In case you didn’t hear, two weeks ago marked the single worst ratings week for network television in history.

And just what were people doing, you might ask? MediaWeek has some of the answer…YouTube:

During the week which ended on July 16, the ever-popular online video-sharing site’s unique audience soar by a whopping 75 percent to 12.8 million users, up from 7.3 million during the previous week, according to new data released by Nielsen//NetRatings.

Interestingly (to me, at least) is that of the Top 100 videos ever at YouTube, 58 of them were user created content. And I wonder how many of those were created by kids. Even more, how many were created by teachers???
