    Hundreds of thousands of 'em, and it's hard enough to keep track of just the ones that are good / cult classics, and count the episodes too.

    In my iTune collection alone with "South Park" + "Top Gear" (series 6 - 22 before they ruined it) there's at least 100 episodes of each.

    Just to get a rough idea of how many of just the good / cult classic ones there are (to the extent Yahoo Answers allows the length of an answer to be):

    1) Top Gear

    2) The Grand Tour
