11 Biggest Timesucks on the Internet - 11 Points Countdown
written by Sam Greenspan

And we're back!

After an extended hiatus, the 11 Points Countdown crew and I finally got coordinated and whipped up a whole new batch of our show. If you've never seen it before, on the 11 Points Countdown a guest host and I reveal the top 11 results of polls from this site and riff on the winners.

This week's topic is the 11 biggest time wasters on the Internet. My co-host is Jordan Morris of the big podcast Jordan, Jesse, Go! and a writer for @Midnight on Comedy Central. Jordan guest hosted on the show once before, for our countdown of the 11 Worst '90s Fads.

If you like this, please take a sec and subscribe to the show's YouTube channel. You'll get to see new episodes before anyone else and since the posting schedule can be a bit erratic, that can be a good thing.
