The Season 20 finale of “South Park” was the top-rated show on cable Wednesday among adults 18-49. Its 1.1 rating was a little above its season average of 1.0, and it beat out ESPN’s late NBA game (Clippers-Warriors) by a tenth of a point to take the top spot.

“Vikings” earned a 0.5 on History, down 0.2 from its return last week. An “Alaskan Bush People” Christmas episode also drew a 0.5 on Discovery, while “Conan’s” adventures in Berlin posted a 0.4 for TBS.
