Is there a way within GitHub to see at the very least the overall number of users who have either seen or downloaded a repository?

Neither of those stats is available, at least not through the Github API. According to this answer on Stack Overflow, you can only see whether it has been downloaded or not.

GitHub API returns downloads count of binary file releases. I developed a little script to easly get downloads count by command line.
