It's a hot new TV show about young Americans straining to launch their lives in an uncertain time. And it's not premiering on TV. The new show, called "Quarterlife," will premier this fall on the Web. The Internet. Not on the big screen in the family room, but the little ones, all over.

TV and television-style content is pushing deeper onto the Internet and computer screens. It's old style — like "Lost" and "24." But it's also new, like "Prom Queen" and "Funny or Die." Don't know those yet? You may soon.

This hour, On Point: TV goes to the web — and change happens.Guests:

Joseph Menn, media reporter at the Los Angeles Times.

Mark Kvamme, partner at Sequoia Capital and board member of funnyordie.com.

James McQuivey, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research.

This program aired on September 19, 2007.
