Option to show count of blog post comments?

On the blog listing page, is there a way to display a count of how many comments exist for a post? A viewer needs to be able to see if there even are any comments for a post before clicking on the link just to find out that none exist. Would also be good to include this count with the Comments subhead on the individual post pages (eg., “4 Comments”)

Hi Debbie,
Not currently, but I think that this would be a very useful feature and would be a great enhancement to the comments functionality.
