My channel has exceeded my wildest expectations. Very soon, I will be a member of the "Club 10 Million" - not so many youtubers ever get to that count. A friend of mine said a few days ago: "You know, Jörg, you get more people to watch your new weekly videos than some of the German premier league ("Bundesliga") football (soccer) clubs".
Now if you only count the stadium audience, that is correct... quiet astounding!
Here is the view count chart for the channel (factual for Sept. 31st, 2011) .
EDIT: OK, it happened... in the wee hours of the 14th.
