This is South Park's fourth nomination and second straight win for the best animated series on television.
The group of animated series is stronger than most people would think. I know Jaydon would put Archer as one of the best comedies on television, and I didn't even vote it in my top three. South Park was my second favorite this season, but it's ability to appeal to so many earned it a second straight Flintstones Award in 2012. Cartman and the gang had plenty of great adventures this season, including "I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining," which was weird even for this Comedy Central series' standards.
