If you're looking for a laugh...

I'm obsessed with basketball (NBA and college) and love being able to watch it live. One of my favorite parts about watching the live telecast of basketball games are the halftime reports with Kenny Smith, Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley. The other day, Shaq took a tumble after tripping over a wire and it went viral. While it's really just a silly video, I thought it's interesting to think about in terms of live television going viral. Before Youtube, if you missed something live, you missed it for good. Now we can watch incidents on live television over and over again. This video, alone, already has over 1 million views. Live TV isn't really the same anymore, because there's no threat of not being able to catch it again.
