My question What did David say to the engineer in Prometheus? has been viewed by more than 7k+ viewers, and now i'm tempted to know which questions are the most viewed questions in Movies and TV.

Is it possible to sort the questions by views something like sort by votes?

  • There is a feature-request for it, but has received no attention on the matter.

  • Using the method described by @BenBrocka - this question: movies.stackexchange.com/q/2273/40 is currently the most viewed at over 7500 views, and your question is in second place with over 7000 views.

There's no built-in search function for it, but you can search for "Views:1000" to view only questions with 1000 views or more and then copy the highest view could you see on that page like "views:30000" until you find the highest viewed question.

  • Is this method discoverable at all? I'm curious what other secret search params there are.

    Of course, right after that, I found this search page which outlines a bunch of parameters, including the Views: one.

There is no way to sort them, but you can filter a tag by the max number of views. By playing with the number you're filtering on, you can get to, say, the top 10 on a tag.

By typing in "[ridley-scott] views:75" into the search bar I can see all of the Ridley Scott questions with at least 75 views (this shows the current top 10 most viewed questions). I can also link others to the results by copying the url: results.


Views is not the only parameter here, but the most important one, so this might help you anyway:

  • Didn't even know they had this.
