    Note: This doesn't sort them by views... – hayd Sep 25 '13 at 2:16
  • I would like to be able to access a list of all my own questions across the entire SE network where I can sort my views/popularity if this exists... – zigojacko Jun 25 '15 at 7:32

The Stack Exchange Data Explorer can be used to find the most viewed questions using this data query.

If you wish you can make a fork of the query to customise the results displayed to include more or less details regarding each question. (e.g. Comments, Answers, Favourites, Votes)

Change the last line:

ORDER BY ViewCount DESC

to

ORDER BY AnswerCount DESC

to sort by answers, or

ORDER BY FavoriteCount DESC

to sort by favorites, or

ORDER BY Score DESC

to sort by votes/score.
