Publish date:

Comedy Central's newest show, Chappelle's Show, debuted to a strong
2.1 rating and 2.5 million viewers Wednesday night, according to Nielsen Media Research.

It is the first time Comedy has found a show that can build off South
's lead-in (1.9 for a repeat).

Chappelle's Show attracted 33 percent more adults 18 through 49 than
South Park, and it was Comedy's best series premiere since That's My
in 2001.
