They would lose viewership if someone were to post a SNL video on youtube.

After all...only 10 minutes each week are actually funny.

No, I doubt it. Youtube is doing a great job of not being stingy. They let you link a video hosted on their website to your website or blog. They pay the bandwidth, and in exchange they get to show free advertisements for other videos on your webpage. People love watching themselves, youtube isn't going anywhere.

 hulu.com is awesome. I don't have a PVR, and I always feel quilty downloading something so I can watch it when I want to. With hulu I can watch The The Daily Show, full episodes of The Office and much much more when I want, where I want to. I was recently stuck at work until midnight on a Friday night and watch 2 episodes of Sons of Anarchy. Saved my life. 

 The ads on hulu are not abtrusive so far, and they always have a count down so you know how long they will be. As long as hulu doesn't get greedy and start adding tons of ads they will be very sucessful, IMHO.  Are those few ads really paying the bandwidth costs?
