Today's featured list statistics
Featured lists (WP:FL) are considered to be the best lists in Wikipedia. The Today's featured list (WP:TFL) was launched in June 2011, being featured every Monday, and since then there has been a record of the articles, the values include: their date at the Main Page, their topic of interest, their main author(s), and pageview and image statistics. Please, do not see this list as a competition, but as a helpful tool for determining correlations between reader views and topics featured on the main page, in relation to the date selected.
The most-viewed list in 2011 was Doctor Who serials with 33,700 pageviews on 29 August; in 2012, the most-viewed list was Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Award with 61,200 pageviews on 6 February; meanwhile the most-viewed list in 2013 was Highest-grossing films with 31,200 pageviews on 25 February.
