Best Day To Release a Once-per-week Webcomic?

I realized that once per week is a very slow update schedule, but it has worked. The questions that should be realized after this point involve the circumstances that would allow for keeping and increasing traffic.
For example, the aspect I've been thinking over is that Saturday might be an ideal day since school is usually out by then (even in universities). With more free time, those who tend to surf the web and in need of a webcomic may find one in the significantly smaller pool of a lonely Saturday night update.From this view, forums may also be more active, and chatrooms more lively due to the availability of free time.
Counteracting this aspect, Saturday may be the time most people aren't spending time near their computers, and if that isn't the case, most of their regular webcomics aren't updating in this time frame- so a webcomic on Saturday may find itself bored and lonely. Of course, it might not even matter to begin with since the webcomic will be accessible at any point the week after.
I'm interested in what opinions you may have.
