Feedburner's Feed Awareness API (read this article at Burning Questions also), allows developers to integrate feed stats to their applications. It gets even better if the feed you are using is a Feedburner "PRO" account. Then you can have views and clicks per item.
The code for the example can be downloaded here: fb_awareness_api_demo.phps.
