Nielsen announces top 10 online broadcast TV network entertainment programs


I keep hearing friends and colleagues around me making smart comments about canceling their television cable service.  Will they really ever do it?  Probably.

Nielsen announced today, the top most viewed online TV programs. "Lost" came in at No. 1, with 1.4 million unique viewers in December of 2008, followed by "Saturday Night Live," with 1.1 million unique viewers.  "Grey's Anatomy" was No. 3, with 879,000 unique viewers. 

Here's the table for the full list.
