Do you feel overwhelmed by the endless amounts of information and entertainment you can find when you go online?

"The 9", which Yahoo recently launched in July, takes an "Access Hollywood" or "Extra" approach to aggregating the Web’s vast content. This site delivers TV-like online video of the 9 most interesting sites, photos, articles and videos of the day. Our data is showing that slightly over 1,000,000 people visited the page in July to watch Maria Sansone deliver The 9. Viewers of The 9 can directly interact by sending stories and links, and by voting on their favorites for the day. And what about #10 you might ask? Why a list of 9?

A very interactive page at Yahoo sponsored by a brand that’s young and hip. I can see an advertising bidding war ensuing as more and more people begin to find The 9.
