MLG shas another impressive stat for online video: more than 15 million hours were consumed on Pro Circuit weekends. And if you're one that likes demographics, viewers of MLG's content are mostly 18-34 year old (60 percent) males (85 percent). About 40 percent of viewers have a household income of over $100,000.

The last two years of MLG's 10 years in business have shown a 636 percent growth in live viewers. That likely means that next year will be even bigger.
