Wednesday Cable: Southpark Down; Terriers Has Fallen and it Can’t Get Up & Much More

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

After rising last week with a Jersey Shore-themed episode, South Park was down 0.3 with adults 18-49 to a 1.6 rating.

Terriers had already fallen, but it can’t get up.  It scored another 0.2 rating with adults 18-49 and dropped below 500,000 viewers.  The week-to-week fluctuation in South Park’s 18-49 audience was bigger than the entire 18-49 audience for Terriers.

While I’m hesitant to to predict outcomes for cable shows, let me put it like this:  I would be very surprised, but not absolutely stunned if AMC renews Rubicon. I will be completely stunned if FX renews Terriers. Could FX decide to change the name of the show and completely re-market it?  That would be a pretty stunning move on its own.

The Ultimate Fighter, Ghost Hunters and the late afternoon ALCS game 5 (Yankees/Rangers) were the only other shows in the selected group with a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating or better.

Storm Chasers premiered to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating.
