It's time to take a look at the most popular WiiWare titles available in the Wii Shop. If you're feeling adventurous you can even take a look for yourself by simply logging on to your Wii Shop channel, heading into the WiiWare section and then viewing "Popular Games". It's that simple! Trust us, if we can do it, anyone can.
We compile this list using the USA region Wii Shop channel, so if you live elsewhere your list will probably be quite a bit different. Please feel free to post your region's findings below as always.

* (N) - Denotes a new entry on the Top 20
While the "Big Three" remain intact this week, My Pokemon Ranch is making a rather strong comeback and is all the way back up to #4 and threatening to break into the Big Three's stronghold. It would seem that Pokemon fever has struck again.
This week also welcomes two new WiiWare titles to the Top 20 party with the debuts of Bonsai Barber and Equilibrio on the WiiWare charts.
The big climber this week was Bonsai Barber, which jumped from all the way off the charts up to #13. The biggest droppers this week were Bit.Trip Beat and Midnight Bowling, both of which dropped five spots to #9 and #19 respectively.
We also saw TV Show King and Tiki Towers finally drop off the charts completely this week. Only time will tell if these two titles will enjoy any type of resurgence and pop back onto the Top 20 in weeks to come.
