Got the idea from @JimAndFrank in another thread, but how would you rank the episodes so far?
I'll bring my ranking list over here to get the ball rolling:

#1. Going, Going, Gonzo, ep9
#2. Pig's in a Blackout, ep7
#3. Single All the Way, ep1
#4. Pig Out, ep4
#5. Bear Left, then Bear Write, ep3
#6. The Ex-Factor, ep6
#7. Hostile Makeover, epPig
#8. Girls Don't Cry, Pilot
#9. Walk the Swine, ep5
#10. Too Hot to Handler, ep8

I've ranked the episodes based on their Muppety-ness, quality of puppetry, humour, guest star performance and how each episode presents the 'adult' situations.

I've watched the episodes over a few times.
Kinda hard to rank, as it may depend on what episode I'm in the mood for. The Handler episode is still currently my fave, (although not a big fan off CH).

1. Too Hot to Handler
2. Pigs in a Blackout
3. Single All the Way
4. Pig Girls Don't Cry
5. Going Going Gonzo
6. Walk the Swine
7. The Ex-Factor
8. Pig Out
9. Bear Left then Bear Right
10. Hostile Makeover


I'm already looking forward to this set on blu-ray!

From best to worst I would put this.

1. Going, Going, Gonzo
2. Single All the Way
3. Hostile Makeover
4. Bear Left Then Bear Write
5. Pig's In a Blackout
6. Walk the Swine
7. The Ex-Factor
8. Pig Out
9. Pig Girls Don't Cry
10.Too Hot to Handler

Going, Going, Gonzo and Single All the Way were almost perfection, comedy and heartfelt moments were all there. Hostile Makeover, Bear Left Then Bear Write, Pig's In a Blackout, Walk the Swine, and The Ex-Factor were all solid episodes, maybe a nitpick here or there, but really good. Pig Out was good, but not as good as the rest. The pilot was good for a pilot, the other episodes are way better. Too Hot to Handler was okay, but it wasn't that good, I wouldn't handpick the episode to watch, when there are much better episodes.
