In several reports, you can add a Secondary Dimension called Day of Week, or Day of Week Name, and that will let you slice and dice things.

Example... Audience / Geo / Location, then add Secondary Dimension of Day of Week Name.

This does not apply to Audience, there is no secondary Dimension for that report

That isn't exactly correct. One cannot add a secondary dimension when viewing the "Overview" report, but one can get a secondary dimension for each of the specific reports eg: "geo", "behavior", "technology" etc,.

RhinoFish's suggestion is not perfect but I believe that it is the only way to do it. Let me add that you will need to add a filter to only show Saturdays and Sundays.

One more time, this time a little slower...

Left nav, got to Audience.
Under that, go to Geo.
Under that, go to Location.
On the right, you should see a map and a list of countries.

Click "Secondary dimension" button.
Type "Day of Week Name", then select it.
Column 3 should show Session data.

Yes, it's per country, but I bet that'll do.

There are other places besides Audience / Geo / Location where you can add a Sec Dim like this.

And the filter idea, also good, if you need to only show Sat and Sun, for example.

thhe date range selector is on the top right of every report except the Real-Time reports. Click the arrow next to the existing dsate range to open the controls.
