Updated: ‘Fringe’-less Friday, How Far Will Our Saturday Traffic Fall? (Poll)
Robert noted earlier about the Saturday traffic benefits we’ve reaped after Fringe moved to Fridays. But with the NAACP Image Awards on Fox tonight, there’s no Fringe to drive our Saturday site traffic.
Since I recently got a few requests to do another “TV by the Numbers By The Numbers” post, I figured I’d mix them up.
Here are our Saturday pageviews for the last several months.
|Saturday, December 4, 2010||106,701|
|Saturday, December 11, 2010||98,944|
|Saturday, December 18, 2010||84,759|

How much will we be missing the Fringe traffic tomorrow?
Update March 6: The wisdom of the crowds was not so wise this time around. Only around 17% predicted traffic of 140K page views or greater. We came in at 172,815 page views. We were helped immensely though by an out of the ordinary, particularly for a Saturday, linking circumstance that generated about 25,000 more page views than we would’ve otherwise received. But even without that, we’d have been north of 140,000 page views.
For those who can’t wait for Fringe to return, here’s a new promo video:
