DotComedy.com Gets Canned
MediaWeek reports that NBC Universal will soon close Dotcomedy.com, a site which attempted to gather all of NBC's humor-oriented video content under one roof.
This closure is no big surprise. Dotbombery, I mean Dotcomedy was always an overcrowded, ugly site whose search feature barely worked (try typing in "Saturday Night Live into its search box and you'll see what I mean. Most of the crowding on its pages came from ads, promotions, and other branded ephemera, its Terms & Conditions page was long and scary, and its traffic apparently was so low as to make it unmeasurable. This, plus a decision by NBCU to relocate a lot of its unfunniness back to NBC.com doomed this expensive project, and few will mourn its passing. It joins a long list of Abandoned Humor Sites that litter the Web.
