'South Park' doesn't lend itself to promotional campaigns that starts months before a premiere in the same manner as other shows, though we're glad to see Matt Stone and Trey Parker back in the saddle for the upcoming seventeenth season, set to premiere on September 25. To that end, Comedy Central's first teaser for the coming premiere reveals a number of potential targets for parody, so what's the latest from 'South Park' season 17?

Whether by 'Community' creator Dan Harmon's antics, or a communicable decline in quality for season 4, the NBC cult comedy has long struggled with the reasoning behind its celebrated, but statistically small audience. How better to fight back, than for series stars Joel McHale and Yvette Nicole Brown to stealthily bash NBC in a new Comedy Central syndication spot?
The end is once again nigh for 'Futurama,' as this coming Wednesday will see the long-running sci-fi comedy blasting off one last time for its Comedy Central series finale "Meanwhile." We've heard this song and dance before, 'Futurama' having had two prior series finales to date, but does executive producer David X. Cohen believe Fry, Leela, Bender, Zoidberg and the rest of the Planet Express crew are really gone for good?
Hard to believe 'Futurama' has only one more episode to air before its latest (and possibly last) hypersleep, but we certainly won't stop talking about it. 'Talking Dead' and 'Talking Bad' host Chris Hardwick will venture off AMC to host a two 'Futurama' talkbacks surrounding next Wednesday's series finale "Meanwhile," the first clip of which has made its way online as well.
Here are some of the best lines from the James Franco roast, though we'll caution not everything here will necessarily make air on Comedy Central.
It's been a good while since we checked in on 'Futurama''s purportedly final season, but with only two episodes remaining in the current run, it looks like the Planet Express gang has saved the best for last! Next Wednesday will see 'Game of Thrones' star Emilia Clarke lending her voice to the far-out series as a new love interest for Zoidberg of all people, and we've got a first look!
Comedy legend Bill Cosby may not maintain much presence in the public eye anymore, beyond the occasional Jimmy Fallon appearance, but it seems the 76-year-old comic is going back to work full time. The former 'Cosby Show' leader will return with a new Comedy Central stand-up special later this year, having not recorded new material for a special in 30 years.
On the occasions in which Comedy Central puts someone outside the realm of comedy to roast, as most recently with comedienne Roseanne Barr, we always hope they deserve it. Thankfully, this year will hold true as the cable network has seated 'This Is the End' star and "Academy Award-nominated actor-director-writer-producer-artist" James Franco on the throne as its latest roastee.
For as much as we've enjoyed the original web incarnation of 'Drunk History,' we're eager to get a look at Comedy Central's longer take on the series before its July 9 debut. Thankfully, our impatient drunk sensibilities won't need to wait that long, as Comedy Central has released the first full episode online to view two weeks ahead of schedule!
Bittersweet though it may be, 'Futurama' will finally return tonight for the first of the final 13 episodes, beginning with "Fry and Leela's Big Fling." While we've learned of some impressive genre guest stars to debut in the coming weeks, most surprising of all is that 'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane will lend his voice to the futuristic animated comedy, and you'll never guess as whom!
