I'll bet there's enough O&D traffic to provide decent loads on a couple of daily RJ's. Savannah's not a huge city in population terms, but it's a popular tourist destination and has a growing business sector. In addition, SAV also serves the big Hilton Head resort area.

Flying into HHH is quite expensive.... Savannah provides competitive prices. Additionally, I know several people who drive up from Jacksonville (and I know that many in Brunswick go too) to Savannah for a deal occasionally.
Savannah is far enough south that Houston isn't out of the way for east-west connections.

IAH would add another 1hr flying time over ATL or DFW if you're headed to/from the West Coast. I think CO's hub is as big as it is because the Houston economy is as big as it is. IAH's East West catchment area is Florida and the Gulf Coast. Connecting traffic heavily favors DFW and ATL north of this. No knock on IAH. Great for Northern Mexico though.
