NBC.com & CNBC.com reach new heights

As a firm believe of "every negative holds a positive," I searched long and hard for the positive of the Wall Street misfortune.

The best I could come up with is that CNBC's website hit new heights of "abnormal" customer usage that Monday of the Wall Street crash. I suppose someone has to benefit, right?

The Wall Street drama brought a new number of "abnormal" (non-frequent) users to CNBC's website. Their new total of "abnormal" users reached to 1 million. Which is a 26 percent increase from the previous site's best.

Not only was the Wall Street trouble what helped CNBC hit a new peak, Tina Fey's "Saturday Night Live" Sarah Palin impression was posted on their other Website, which also made iTunes' rating soar as well as many people downloaded the Palin impression.

Within four days of the Fey video being posted on NBC, it had reached a new height of 5.7 million views, and it's still growing.

I think this shows that while a lot of people are concered with the issues on Wall Street and what the latest poll shows on the race for the office, many people are also taking a few minutes to lighten their day by laughing at the numerous puns throw to Palin from Fey.

If you haven't seen the impression yet, I urge you to catch up on Wall Street and follow up with a few laughs from Tina Fey as Sarah Palin.
