Amur is the only club to have sold out all games (Slovan all games except the second September game). Vityaz Chekhov is at a very respectable 87%, too. It's just that their arena is tiny. The avarage KHL attendance is 80% of capacity crowd, which is quite good, far above "half-empty".
For all details, see the table below. It's from this December 17, 2012 article (and great Russian blog regularly tracking hockey attendance around the world):
