    The Story from Reuters

    MySpace is looking into breaking itself into the TV show selling market, which to me makes absolutely zero sense. Am I the only one mildly and unhappily shocked by this, or did no one see it coming? :confused:

    And sponsered by Burger King.... ugh.

    For some reason, this really doesn't surprise me much.

    MySpace has gotten so huge, that people who already have high-traffic sites just tell everyone to go see their MySpace instead. :p I've even heard ads where instead of telling the listener to go to X web site, they tell them to 'check them out on myspace.'

    Myspace.com is the most popular online site for personal space, especially for young people within the 18-24 demographic and is owned by one of the worlds largest media corporations, NewsCorp.

    Now why would myspace, home to millions of Fox viewers, want to sell Fox shows through a free medium owned by investors to both?
