[email protected] Panels By The Numbers

(1/5) > >>

SteveD:
One thing that has been interesting Comic-Con this year is that we have more insight into the popularity of all the panels that were presented.

If you think about how everyone attends panels at a normal Comic-Con, they would normally sit through one, or two, or many earlier panels to see the one they want.
I'm sure we've all been at a panel in Hall H where one panelist will comment on how so many people came out to see their panel, while in fact, most were there to see Marvel or DC later in the day.
This year, however, watching from home, we had the ability to choose to watch only the panels we wanted to see and skip those that we were not interested in.
We now have the opportunity to look at some real popularity numbers. So I went ahead and compiled a list of all the panels from each day along with the number of YouTube views given for each panel.

What I found was overall, the two most popular panels viewed during [email protected], by a significant margin, were The Vikings and The New Mutants panels, followed by The Walking Dead panels, and The Constantine Reunion panel.

Here is a snapshot taken on Monday July 27 at around 6PM PDT of the viewing numbers for all the [email protected] panels for each day of the Con.
Thoughts? Surprises?

--- Quote ---Views on YouTube, which hosted the vast majority of Comic-Con’s panels, were scarcely better. Average views for Thursday, which have had the longest period for people to watch them, are hovering around 15,000 per panel. On the one hand, that’s over double the capacity for Comic-Con’s biggest live venue, the famed Hall H. On the other hand, 😬.

In terms of YouTube views and social media impact, by far the best performing panel for [email protected] was for “The New Mutants,” 20th Century Studios’ long-suffering Marvel Comics adaptation which has had its released date pushed four times since April 2018. To date, the film’s panel has logged just over 208,000 views on YouTube since July 23, thanks largely to the decision to debut a first look at the opening scene for the film within the panel itself, and it was the most discussed movie panel on Twitter, generating 7,700 tweets.

TardisMom:
Thanks Steve, great info!

I'm really surprised that Vikings was so popular, their fans are dedicated!  I'm curious, does YouTube count additional viewings on the same device as additional views?

And The Mutants clearly has a eager audience for when it finally opens!

NCDS:
I don't know that it was a failure, it does tell us that people go to the convention for more than panels.
