NewTeeVee’s Top Ten Posts of 2009

Another year is almost in the books, which means it’s time to look back at the stories that got the most eyeballs on NewTeeVee over the course of 2009. This year, Michael Jackson and Barack Obama were big draws, as one might expect. But two other things stand out: the growing popularity of Hulu (and desire of international viewers to check it out), and the importance of live events online, as people searched for streams of the Presidential Inauguration and Jackson’s memorial service. (See our Top Ten Post lists for 2007 and 2008.)

So without further ado, here are our top stories for the year:
