November 2009 marked a new milestone for online video viewing.  According to a new report from comScore, over 170 million Internet users in the U.S. watched online video in November 2009 for a total of nearly 31 billion videos viewed during the month.  That’s a new record, which demonstrates that comScore’s predictions for the future of online video viewing made in June 2009 appear to be well on track.

Google-owned online video sites (which include YouTube) are far and away leading the pack in terms of the number of viewers and videos viewed, but Hulu is showing impressive momentum — more than doubling its stats from less than a year ago as reported by Nielsen.  Check out the stats below:
