The Archive Scores Its One Millionth Video Stream!

May 15th, 2006

Today marks another big moment in Archive of American Television history -- we've reached our ONE MILLIONTH stream on Google Video. That means over 1,000,000 segments have been viewed or partially-viewed by television history enthusiasts worldwide! Even if the average user only viewed 15 minutes of a 30 minute segment (we have no way of knowing what the real average is), that's 250,000 hours watched, or 10,417 full days, or almost 29 years (okay, okay, we'll stop now before we start calculating dog years or fruitfly lifespans)!

How are we celebrating? By finding ways to keep the content coming and by continuing to film interviews with the movers and shakers of television. Just last week, we traveled to New York and interviewed HBO's SHEILA NEVINS, USA Network founder KAY KOPLOVITZ, Court TV host DOMINICK DUNNE, "Golden Girl" RUE MCCLANAHAN, first female network news anchor MARLENE SANDERS, and former ABC president FREDERICK S. PIERCE.

Help us reach our billionth -- please post your comments or email us with your rants and raves about what you've seen so far.

Thanks for your support.
