    Pity about South Park rating lower than usual. The Sarcastaball episode was actually quite funny, though a little gross.

    Loved the way they replaced NFL for Sarcastaball briefly and random other stuff. Classic South Park in every way.

  • John A

    Wow South Park is really low.

  • Ram510

    What channel is “ID”

  • The End

    @John A

    Yeah no kidding. Lowest its been since Season 13 too(We’re on 16 now).

    @Ram510

    That would be the Investigation Discovery Channel
    http://investigation.discovery.com/

  • Trisha

    @Nick Are there any numbers for Are We There Yet? on TBS at 12pm and Hollywood Heights on TeenNick at 8pm?

  • John A

    @Ram510 Investigation Discovery.

  • John A

    Im not shocked by South Park going down. Its not the show it used to be. But its old and the quality of course is declining.

  • TimsDale4ever

    Do it BOO BOO!!!!!!!

  • John A

    But saying that it hurts to see Honey Boo and Family Guy Repeat beat it.

  • Chris

    I foresee an upcoming South Park ep (quite possibly this season, given how quickly they churn out SP eps) where Cartman comes up with yet another get-rich-quick scheme involving transforming himself into a child beauty pageant contestant named “Sugar Moo Moo” or something like that. ;)

  • TV Gord

    Where is PETA??? They are quick to protest carnivals, rodeos, circuses and other forms of entertainment that they claim exploit animals, yet no one is trying to help Honey Boo Boo and her idjit family!

  • teamo

    Is Honey Boo Boos demo ratings a series high?

  • MattM

    South Park barely out-performing Brickleberry is kind of sad. Needs more funny and less preachiness. I think they have one more season after this and maybe one more movie and then call it a series.

  • Bryan

    @Nick – Can you provide numbers for new “Robot and Monster” (7:30pm, NICK) and “Lego Star Wars” (8pm, TOON)? Thanks!

  • rob60990

    Castle did well for TnT.

  • Mark wood

    2nd time this month SPN tops this listing for shows on TNT, not bad for a 9am and 10am show that has such low originals numbers compared to the majority of stripped network material that the rebroadcast.

  • Ryan

    @Chris- South Park is renewed through 2016; giving it 20 seasons.

  • Joe Daniels

    Wouldn’t this be better if you put the show in order of the viewers instead of the 18-49? Would find it much more appealing.

  • Mark wood

    Joe I think Robert & Bill always sort by demo performance as that is what pays the bills (ad rates ). And those generally reflect the health of the programming, which viewers don’t.

  • The End

    @Joe Daniels

    No because to 96 percent of the networks listened, overall viewers means pretty much nothing.
