The Wiki Channel Shows Leaderboard is a list that keeps track of the Wiki Channel shows' publicity points which determines their ranking in their popularity. Wiki Channel shows gain popularity by getting points. Points can be obtained by simply getting publicity for the show including (but not limited to) being featured in a Wiki Channel Weebley, having a feature on What's Up With...?, having a special video posted for the show on the Wiki Channel Youtube, etc. See the list below to see how many points each act of publicity is worth.
Publicity Points Table
# of Points
Show is picked up to series (starting points)
Developed wiki for the show (see below for more details)
New show starring famous/accomplished actor/singer (points depend on credentials and importance in show)
Publicity of an actor on the show (in a Weebley, signed to WR, in a Pilot, etc.)
Promotional image for show
Song release from the show
Being involved in a Wiki Channel special event
Actor is supporting character in WCOM
Actor publicity does not apply to cartoon shows since voice actors do not bring much attention to their shows. The publicity will only count if an actor from the show mentions the cartoon show they're on (in an interview, quote, etc.)
A developed wiki for a show must have all main/recurring character pages and pages for 50% of the made episodes.
Shows do not receive points for season pick up press releases since they already receive points for the renewal.
Shows cannot get actor publicity points from a Weebley if it is already receiving feature points and the publicity for the actor comes from that same section.
Please do not add points until whatever the show is getting points for actually airs/happens. The points affect the ratings and the popularity and the show's ratings/popularity wouldn't go up until it actually happens.
Most Popular - Ratings would typically be in the high 3 millions, specials/hour long events and really good nights would get in the 4 millions, bad nights they'd be in the low 3 millions (possibly but rarely 2 million)
Popular - Ratings would be in the lower/average 3 millions, good nights would get in the high 3 millions and bad nights in the 2 millions.
Average - Ratings would typically be in the 2 millions, good nights they'd get in the 3 millions, and really bad nights would see really low 2 millions and sometimes 1 millions
NEW SHOWS RATINGS SCALE
120 points or more would be considered hit new shows with ratings generally in the high 3 millions, sometimes 4 millions, the premiere would be above 5 million
70-119 points would be regular new shows with ratings generally in the average 3 million range and the premiere would be over 4 million
69 points and below would be considered struggling shows and would just get ratings in the 3 million range, sometimes high 2 million, and then the premiere would be either in the 3 million or low 4 million range
After the show has been airing for 2 months, it is no longer considered a new show and must comply to the regular leaderboard rules. Also keep in mind that how a show premiered can also impact it's premiere ratings.
