Will it change?
But it was worse in like season nine and ten. It is better now. While I find most of his airtime to be somewhat wasteful, he has potential. Honestly, I'd rather have him as the show's designated hitter- just come up to the plate and smack me in the face with laughter, take your bow, sit down, and let everyone else work the plot.
South Park without Cartman would be like House without Hugh Laurie, or Curb Your Enthusiasm without Larry David.. it just doesn't work. They embody the entire essence of the show and they're the ones that make it interesting and unique. Look at the shows people hate: Pinewood Derby (I don't remember seeing Cartman once in that episode), The F-Word (not Cartman focused), Scrotie Mcbooger Balls, (while I don't agree that it was bad, seems the majority does, and it was not centered around Cartman at all) and that's just the recent ones.
Regardless of that however, I think even though the Cartman gets the majority, they still give most characters one episode and they have at least one that's about all the boys. Taking last season, obviously Butter's Bottom Bitch wasn't Cartman (also only slightly funny imo), The Ring wasn't anyone and if it was I'd say Kenny's episode, Pinewood Derby was Stan's, could be an argument that Margaritaville was Kyle's (I'd split it 50/50 for him and Cartman) WTF was the boys.. that's almost half the season of episodes that didn't focus on Cartman; and once again all but the Margaritaville episode being original and a solid show (though I loved mickey in the ring).
The first show this season to really focus on Cartman doing nasty adult things was the most popular episode so far. I don't agree with that, but what gets the best response is what they will try to bring. Honestly though, with Cartman being so dynamic and crazy, I don't really see it as a bad thing. Where else could South Park go?
