I kind of think the weekly featured being so far down on the main page makes it negligible. Have you considered switching it's location with that of the sites statistics? I'd think people might be more interested in discovering a new series rather than the general numbers for the site. Perhaps all those numbers are good at convincing new time visitors that "hey stuff happens here" but after that, what's its point?. Perhaps also the 'weekly featured' could be used to showcase new series that are debuting, helping them get attention?
