Monday night's episode of The Hills - the first of Season 3's eight bonus episodes - averaged 4.8 million total viewers, the MTV series' largest audience ever for a single episode. The Hills also hit an all-time high in its 12-34 target demo, and in fact was Monday's best-delivering prime-time program in that regard.

And that's just counting the kiddies who watched it old-school-style on TV! On Tuesday, served up 1.8 million streams of the episode, a 29 percent increase from Season 3's opener.

Me? I believe you can "watch" the series simply by scanning magazine cover lines at the Hudson News newsstand. - MWM
