Fox Launches PrimeTime Shows on MySpace

In case you've been asleep, Fox which is owned by Big Daddy New Corporation (NYSE NWS) has put their prime time line up on Myspace. You must be thinking, Where can I find Fox TV shows online? Look no further than


It's a great place to find shows. You can find 8 shows:
  • Prison Break
  • Justice
  • Bones
  • til Death
  • StandOff
  • Vanished
  • the Loop
  • Talk with Spike Speresten
The only downside is you have to download the Full Throttle player in order to view the content. Having Flash player won't do.

Actually, what I find interesting is the data from Google Trends which shows you which show is the most searched for out of the bunch. The top three Fox shows are Prison Break, Justice, and Bones. You can see that Prison Break is the most popular show of the bunch. Surprisingly, the most number of Prison Break queries is coming from Oslo, Norway, Goteberg, Sweden, and Melbourne, Australia. What about the US? I guess US watchers aren't that savvy about searching for Prison Break online. Or is it just that they can't get the show on TV in the Nordic so that they are searching for it online?

Where can I find AABC shows are available at:


In contrast, ABC has 7 shows online as well (insteado of 8):

  • Grey's Anatomy
  • Desperate Housewives
  • Lost
  • Ugly Betty
  • Six Degrees
  • the Nine
  • the Knights of Prosperity
ABC's most popular show according to Google Trends is Lost followed by Desperate Housewives, and Grey's Anatomy. Surprisingly, residents of Auckland New Zealand and Sydney Australia are the most active searchers of Lost episodes followed by Rochester. What is it about these residents Down Under? Hmmm.... I wonder who's doing all that searching: Rupert Murdoch?

We don't get the newest seasons of many of those shows down here and, ironically, non-USA IPs are actually blocked from streaming them. So basically you have all these visitors from Australia who can't actually watch anything!
