Fox Interactive Media grabbed the page-views baton from Yahoo in November to take over as the most popular network of Web sites on the Internet, according to data from Comscore.

Fox Interactive Media, on the strength of the MySpace, garnered 39.5 billion page views in November, besting Yahoo’s 38 billion page views for the month, according to Comscore. MySpace has been trending up nearly every month for the last year and has grown 200 percent year over year in page views.

Visits had long been the purview of Yahoo and its sites, but as Yahoo had struggled in nearly every other area, it’s lost that perch too.

In a statement, Peter Levinsohn, president of Fox Interactive Media, said, “Our top page-view ranking reflects the steady and sustained growth we’ve seen over the past year, particularly driven by MySpace, as well as strong traffic to IGN.com, which was fueled this past month by the new game console releases.”

In August, Comscore reported that the FIM sites were the leading Web destination for online video, serving 1.4 billion streams that month to Yahoo’s 823 million streams.
