On Bloomberg it said that Ask.com will be an alternative to Google just as Fox was to the three main networks when launched. It is looking for a 10-15% market share within 2-3 years (6-7% now).
Fox had sassy shows and right-wing news coverage to draw market share away from the mainstream networks. Unless Ask can replace Jeeves with Homer Simpson or Bill O'Reilly, it's going to be like a new librarian trying to win patrons away from another (and much more popular) librarian.
