I..disagree. Extremely so.
It's just so beyond obvious that Kyle, unlike Stan and his other classmates, isn't indifferent to Cartman's taunting. He takes it personally and he lets the comments get to him (unlike Butters who takes it with a smile, something that ruins the fun for someone like Cartman). If he truly cared about Kyle, don't you think he would of felt something for his loss when he originally left, NOT after realizing Butters wasn't an entertaining rival? Stan even says it himself: "Without Kyle to rip on, your life is empty and hallow."
Exactly that. Not, "You secretly care about him" nor does it imply that in ANY way...but I digress.
Cartman later on says, "I'm not doing it for Kyle." And that's very important to note, because the episode itself is now flat out informing you that is purely selfish rather than altruistic.
Lastly, Cartman telling no one of him saving Kyle doesn't imply that he cares about him in any way, shape, or form- it's because he doesn't want anyone to misinterpret his actions as caring for Kyle. Because Kyle himself might misinterpret his actions and no longer react with anger to his bullying, no longer giving those intoxicating reactions that makes bullying just so fun for Cartman.
But of course, the last scene itself. Kyle reacts with anger to his insult, and Cartman is once again satisfied (with hating on Kyle).
Basically, this is the cannon reason Cartman saved him from Smug.
Of course he's going to save his little crush from the Smug.
