  • Ratings in red denote a Tweens 9-14 rating instead of an Adults 18-49 rating
  • There is a discrepancy in the viewership for Comedy Central's 'South Park.' TVbytheNumbers listed it as 2.255 million viewers, but USA Today listed it as 3.3 million. Media Life Magazine said that the episode had a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating (2.237 mil in that demo) which makes me think that the 3.3 million total viewership figure is correct.
  • Viewership data was not available for
