Comedy Videos Are the Most Popular Videos on the Internet


A new survey by the Pew Research Center found that comedy videos are the most popular videos on the internet, with 57% of internet-using adults in the US watching them. That number jumped from 50% in 2009 (the year Late Night with Jimmy Fallon started, which is probably not a coincidence). Comedy videos narrowly beat out how-to (56%), educational (50%), and music (50%) videos, as well as absolutely trouncing less popular genres like animation and sports. The full report on internet videos can be read online, or you could just check out some awesome web videos.
