More people may have watched cable hurricane coverage online than on TV

File this under your growing tipping points folder:

Hurricane Katrina not only drove people away from the Gulf Coast, it drove millions online. According to PaidContent.org CNN had 10 million unique visitors and 9 million video downloads on Sunday. Compare that to their impressive 2.3 million primetime cable viewers that day.

Here are the primetime viewership numbers from TVNewser for the big three cable news networks:

FNC:  4,073,000
CNN:  2,279,000
MSNBC:  1,021,000
Total:  7,373,000
We were unable to find the a link to the actual web traffic numbers for FNC, CNN and MSNBC. If you know, please drop us a note.
