‘South Park’ Preview: Cartman Finally Admit’s He’s Fat in New “Raising the Bar” Clip

Comedy Central

South Park‘ may be old, but last week’s “Sarcastaball” proved that the series can still turn on a dime and beat a dead horse joke well into the ground, taking on the recent NFL controversy in a way that kept fans laughing uncomfortably nearly the entire episode. Now, as the show’s 16th season gets ready to roll along with its sophomore effort, what topics are left to cover? Might it be time to turn the lens inward, as the newest clip from “Raising the Bar” reveals?

No, it isn’t a reunion of the classic TNT legal drama, but ‘South Park’ will be “Raising the Bar” in a big way this Wednesday when it finally tackles the issue of Cartman’s obesity for real. But with obesity at a national high, will the issue stay within the confines of South Park, or will the boys be off on another world-spanning adventure? Check out the official press release from Wednesday’s all-new episode:
