It seems not only does Drudge consider South Park cable news, but the rerun of "The Snuke" about Hillary Clinton was beat out by O'Reilly and Hannity/Colmes that night.

I watched S'nuke last night. I thought it was hilarious. I loved the "24" style episode. Well, maybe I just love anything that's a takeoff on "24".

Obernut has too many viewers . We got to work on that one. maybe if he came out with his bald head and his true colors and out of the closet from what Levin posts about him , he could loose a lot of viewers.Got to work on that one.

Putting "South Park" in the numbers gives the rest of the statistics some context.

How many twenty-somethings watch "South Park" and ignore the news?

Cartman and Chloe, er, Kyle, had four times the viewership of Spitting Matthews.

Maybe this place isn't as bad as we thought.

Sadly it(South Park) is also better written and more inteligent(than Hardball).

Damn straight... it also is more current as far as insight into what's grabbing America's attention.

Hardbowel... gives you the insight of a lifelong, Democrat flak... who was a pro at keeping Tip O'Neill's drink fresh.

What did Glenn Beck get on Headline News and what did John Gibson get on Fox? I'd love to see Gibson replace Shep Smith at 7pm.

What's disappointing is that Glenn Beck's show doesn't make the list. He certainly deserves to be ranked higher than Keith Overbite and Chrissy.

I ditto that thought about Gibson for Sheppy.

I LOVE Gibson's show..but it is so early, a lot of people don't get a chance to see it.

What in the world is going on there. He has essentially no audience. What can the ad rates be for that disaster.

The episode referred to The Drudge Report.

That is right, I couldn't figure out what Drudge was up to until you mentioned that.

I thought Hillary's Southern Drawl in that episode was hilarious, er Hillarious.

Beck will never show really good ratings because the show is on three times a night and that divides the viewership.
I used to have a link to a site that posted daily numbers....can't seem to find it atm, sorry.

Ahh, here it is!

The Snuke was a stroke of brilliance. I loved how it denied sHrillary the "notoriety" hit by making her a tangential "pawn" in the story instead of the main character.

They portrayed her more as stage scenery than as any central element in the storyline. The hog sniffing scene was priceless!

"Injustice" denied!
