SOUTH PARK Named the Most Offensive Television Show of All Time

It should come as no surprise that South Park, a show with its own “Controversies” section on Wikipedia would be considered offensive by some.

But according to a new study, it’s not just Baby Boomer church-going folks who are offended by Cartman’s antics. Senior Living spoke to “1,000 people from various generations,” with “participants ranged in age from 18 to 89,” to discover the most offensive TV show of all-time. With 30.7 percent, South Parkeasily came in first, followed by Family Guy (10.5), Jerry Springer (7.1), All In the Family (6.4), and Married… with Children (2.7). The long-running Comedy Central animated series also fared well in the “most offensive TV character/personality” poll, with Cartman’s 18.7 percent topping Archie Bunker’s 14.5 percent (other notable finalists: Roseanne Barr in fourth place, Donald Trump in sixth, and Bart and Homer Simpson in 12th and 13th; Beavis finished in 14th, but partner-in-frog baseball Butthead was nowhere to be found).

Here are the findings:

The study also found that Baby Boomers are most triggered by sexual violence, while Generation Z doesn’t appreciate poor representation (token character or a lack of diversity). You can find the complete project here.
