During the first three days Pop Parade received about 120 thousand daily visits, while Music Choice started well beneath, recording between 20 and 40 thousand visits. Between the third and the ninth day, Pop Parade experienced a gradual downward trend reaching a low of about 40 thousand views, just beyond Music Choice, which during this period levelled off between 20 and 40 thousand. Over the last 6 days visits to Pop Parade increased sharply, reaching a peak of more than 140 thousand visits and obtaining even better results in the last two days, after a short dip. On the other hand, Music Choice soared to 120 thousand only in the 12th period, remained stable the following two days and then dropped to less than 80 thousand visits.
