What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the Comedy Central cable channel, the South Park TV show was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Taking place in the fictional small town of South Park, Colorado, the adventures center around four third-grade boys — Stanley “Stan” Marsh (Parker), Kyle Broflovski (Stone), Kenneth “Kenny” McCormick (Stone), and Eric Cartman (Parker). The voice cast of this long-running series also includes Mona Marshall, April Stewart, Adrien Beard, and Jennifer Howell.
Season 25 Ratings
The 25th season of South Park averages a 0.31 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 634,000 viewers. Compared to season 24, that’s down by 33% in the demo and up by 22% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.
