While this year's SDCC all took place virtually, repackaged as Comic-Con@Home, one of the great things about the event was that anyone can "get into" a panel. No more waiting in line, overnight, to make sure you got a seat in the notorious Hall H. Every panel can be watched on YouTube, over and over and over again.

Because of this, we now know which panels the masses are most interested in, as all of YouTube's videos display the view count. So what do people care about the most? While most of the weekend people loved the New Mutants panel, after Comic-Con was said and done, Vikings was on top.

Below, you'll find the list of the most-viewed Comic-Con panels from this year. These panels and numbers were updated throughout the weekend, and what you see below are the totals for after the show wrapped up.

Check out the top 10 panels for Comic-Con weekend.
