Record Viewers For "The China Problem"

Apparently I wasn't the only one that found the Indiana Jones rape scene(s) to be funny, as 3.7 million viewers tuned into to see the Fall premiere of South Park.


This is up 21% from last Fall's Premiere and South Park's best premiere since 1999.


Some thought the controversial scene went too far, but other like-minded individuals at SideReel thought it was genius.

the rape scenes were funny but the rest of the episode was kindof weak.. and i think those 3.5 mil people tuning in were checking to see if the episode was gonna be any good, i wonder howmany people thought it wasnt as good as they hoped it would be

I agree with joytodaworld , After all that time off many people were just eager to see new South Park period . The rape seen was funny and Butters accidently shooting people in the crotch was funny, but the rest of the episode was , i.m.h.o.,pretty weak compareds to the better episodes.

I agree it was not necessarily a series best - I think the 2 stories (China and Indiana Jones) were a little disconnected - it's almost as if those should have been 2 separate episodes, but for shock value alone, I enjoyed the episode a lot, actually (and more than the following week's, The Breast Cancer Awareness one, which I thought had less substance to it - I've almost come to expect South Park to always critique some aspect of the news/pop culture these days, and am disappointed when they do not)
