Two episodes in, and already 'South Park' seems to have reclaimed a bit of magic in the second half of its 16th season. Last week brought us the inspired "Raising the Bar," adding a dash of James Cameron and his wonderful theme song into the mix, while the week prior managed to keep a sarcastic tone near of the entire half-hour through "Sarcastaball." So, can "Insecurity" keep the streak going? Watch the new clip to find out!
The moment we knew that 'South Park' would be taking on the obese in wednesdays' latest episode "Raising the Bar," it was inevitable that hte long-running Comedy Central satire would find some way ot work in America's newest sweethearts, Honey Boo-Boo and her cringe-inducing TLC family. But, with Eric Cartman the only big-boned character 'round these parts, how will Eric react to having the limelight shifted off of him?
'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?
For all the ups and downs of last night's Emmy broadcast, from 'Mad Men's' epic shutout, to 'Homeland' and 'Modern Family's' sweeping victories, one thought certainly crossed our minds: where's 'South Park'? Now preparing to pick up its 16th season on Comedy Central, have Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman fallen so far from the public zeitgeist? Check out the new clip from midseason premiere "Sarcastaball" to see if they get it back!
For a show where the episodes are made ad minimum 6 days in advance of airing, it sure seems like 'South Park' seasons go by quicker and quicker these days. Not only that, but 16 seasons in, and the boys Matt Stone and Trey Parker show no signs of stopping just yet! So with 'South Park' season 16 already eight episodes in the can, exactly when will things pick up with the second half? And what else does Comedy Central have lined up for the fall?
In what seems to be part of a maneuver to convert the whole of the internet into TV, it seems today that Comedy Central is taking yet another revered web series to pilot. Previously, we learned that 'Drunk History' would get its own show, and blog 'Bad Advice From My Brother' would be developed, and now it seems 'Tiny Apartment' is moving on up as well.
Huzzah, America! After being around seemingly forever, it would seem that 'The Daily Show' will be around quite a while longer, with its current and arguably best host to date in place. More than that, its sister show 'The Colbert Report' will be sticking around as well, but for how long? Does either series have a shelf life, or does Comedy Central plan to keep them around indefinitely?
We're only 49 days away from the premiere of all-new 'Futurama' on Comedy Central. How do we know that? Why, because the network yesterday began its special 50-day countdown to the season 7 premiere on Thursday, June 20, and every day serves up a new look, clip, or artwork to keep 'Futurama' fans going faster than the speed of light? So what's first up?
