Movable Type includes templates for the total number of comments in a blog (MTBlogCommentCount) and the total number of comments on an entry (MTEntryCommentCount). But there is no similar template tag for the total number of comments in a category. This template provides this tag: MTCategoryCommentCount.

2. Start using the <MTCategoryCommentCount> tag in a Category context, to output the total number of comments in a Category.
On my Google Forum page, the tables list both "Topics" and "Replies". Topics are Entries and Replies are Comments. I used the <MTCategoryCommentCount> to generate the number of replies in each Forum (Category).
