‘South Park’ Ratings Down for Season 23 Premiere – But It’s Still the Top Cable Comedy in Young Adults (Exclusive)
There’s still life in those foul-mouth kids from “South Park”, as the 23rd season of the long-running animated comedy handed Comedy Central the top cable comedy telecast of the year in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic.

The premiere episode — which introduced a new intro that swapped out “South Park” for “Tegridy” — notched a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49, when adding in three days of delayed viewing on DVR and on-demand, according to Nielsen.

While that was good enough to give the network the top telecast among all cable comedies this year, it was down 24% from last year’s season opener (1.7 rating), but in line with the season average. However, if we’re only looking at Live+Same Day results (counting only those people who watched the night of the premiere), Season 23 actually improved from last year with a 0.9 rating in the demo, compared to 0.7 for last season’s opener.
