'South Park' Takes on Penn State Scandal Through a Social Worker's Bad Jokes (VIDEO)

'South Park' takes on Penn State scandalTaking advantage of their speedy production time, this week's installment of 'South Park' (Wed., 10PM ET on Comedy Central) may have been about Kenny and his siblings being taken from their white trash parents and put into foster care, but it had another thread running throughout the narrative in the form of their CPS social worker.

Apparently, he was more concerned about his comedy career than making sure the kids were put into good homes. To lighten the mood he continuously cracked jokes about the scandal at Penn State. The jokes were in terrible taste, but having them told through an unlikable character who was clearly being inappropriate was a very shrewd tactic by Parker and Stone.

Alien Pilgrims From Space on 'South Park' (VIDEO)

'South Park'Holiday time in 'South Park' (Wed., 10PM ET on Comedy Central) is always eventful and more than a little weird. Having been assured that everything they've been told about Native Americans being from space is untrue, the kids are on the couch (natch) as the door is blown open by a pilgrim asking "Why hast thy race sent me to earth?!"

Pretty soon the the kids find themselves mixed up in an ancient feud between alien Pilgrims from space and the Native Americans. Both groups are fighting to control the valuable "stuffing mines."

Of course, this being 'South Park,' it ends in violence, but we do learn a valuable lesson: Alien pilgrims from space have a very nasty test to tell if you're lying about being one-sixteenth Native American.

Border Patrol Stops Mexicans Crossing Back into Mexico on 'South Park' (VIDEO)

'South Park' - 'The Last of the Meheecans'A game of 'Border Patrol' sparked a real border crisis between Mexico and America on 'South Park' (Wed., 10PM ET on Comedy Central). The boys were playing a game, with half of them border patrol and the other half Mexicans. Butters, playing a Mexican, wound up lost.

A well-meaning couple found him and tried to make him a happy Mexican by letting him do work around the house and yard, but as he wanted to go home, they dropped him off at El Pollo Loco. There he inadvertently sparked a movement among the other Mexicans to return to Mexico, where conditions are much better than in the U.S.

Restaurants Try to Figure Out How Cartman's Burgers Taste So Good (VIDEO)

'South Park' - 'Ass Burgers'After the mid-season finale that saw Stan turning ten and literally seeing the entire world as crap, everyone wondered how Parker and Stone would follow it up. With this 'South Park' (Wed., 10PM ET on Comedy Central), we saw.

They didn't cop out and pretend it never happened, but they kind of did do the next best thing. They basically found a way to reset everything back to the way it was, leaving Stan with a little secret to explain it away.

That said, we loved it when Stan met Morpheus and the other leather-clad cynics like himself who saw the world for what it really was. And rather than a pill to see the real world, they used alcohol to see the fake one everyone wants us to see.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone Talk Tony Wins and Broadway, on 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jun 16th 2011 7:50AM
Trey Parker'South Park' creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are no strangers to controversy, having offended just about everyone by now. But now that they're more mature in years, are they in danger of becoming the kind of Establishment figures that they used to mock so mercilessly?

The pair have written a Broadway musical, 'The Book of Mormon,' which has not only been well received by critics, it also picked up nine Tony Awards.

You'd think this would make the Broadway newbies targets of venom in the famously bitchy, backstabbing world of musical theater, but as they told Jon Stewart on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), nothing could be further from the truth.

They say that the Broadway community welcomed them with open arms and has been nothing but lovely to them.

Which is more than can be said for their assessment of a rival show. Stone told Stewart about how when they were prepping 'Book' for the stage all everyone else was talking about was 'Spider-Man,' "but that was before anyone had seen what a train wreck it was." Oh, me-ow.

Top 10 Musical Episodes: 'Buffy,' 'Scrubs,' 'The Simpsons' and More!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Once More With Feeling
If 'Glee' has you yearning for more song-and-dance routines on TV, hold onto your (top) hats! From April 29 to May 5, Fox is turning several of its shows into musicals, including 'Bones,' 'House,' 'The Simpsons,' even 'Fringe.' On May 2, 'Family Guy' will celebrate its 150th episode with an extended episode featuring new and familiar musical numbers. Suffice to say the shows should be a blast, for both us and the actors.

Of course, TV aficionados know this is nothing new. Shows like 'Ally McBeal,' 'Eli Stone,' and 'SpongeBob SquarePants' have featured musical numbers regularly, and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention 'Viva Laughlin' and 'Cop Rock' (even though the latter was declared by TV Guide to be one of the worst shows ever, ouch!). In fact, we can trace the trend back to classic episodes like Bugs Bunny's 'The Rabbit of Seville' and 'What's Opera, Doc?'

Jon Stewart Sings 'Go F**k Yourself' to Muslim Extremists (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Apr 23rd 2010 12:30PM
Jon Stewart encored his song "Go F**k Yourself" on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), aiming it at Muslim extremists who sent death threats to 'South Park' creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker for their portrayal of the prophet Muhammad in the last two episodes of the cartoon.

"By now, those of you with access to media have probably heard that our good friends and colleagues Matt and Trey got in a little bit of trouble during the airing of their weekly animated series 'South Park.' And by trouble, I mean veiled death threats," Stewart said, then launching into a gospel-tinged kiss-off of anyone "threatening death in the name of religion or politics."

'South Park' Creators Respond to Censorship

by Scott Harris, posted Apr 23rd 2010 10:30AM
'South Park' creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have responded to Comedy Central's decision to censor the latest episode of the subversive cartoon following threats from a militant Islamic group.

In a statement released on their South Park Studios Web site, Stone and Parker said, "In the 14 years we've been doing 'South Park' we have never done a show that we couldn't stand behind. We delivered our version of the show to Comedy Central and they made a determination to alter the episode. It wasn't some meta-joke on our part. Comedy Central added the bleeps. In fact, Kyle's customary final speech was about intimidation and fear. It didn't mention Muhammad at all but it got bleeped too. We'll be back next week with a whole new show about something completely different and we'll see what happens to it."

'South Park' - '201' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 22nd 2010 8:36AM
(S14E06) This episode was a continuation of the 200th episode and definitely a treat for those who have been following 'South Park' for the past 14 years. There were a myriad of references to several famous episodes and while the ending could have been better (I would have tried to incorporate Imaginationland), the two-parter was satisfying overall.

More 'Ugly Americans' for Comedy Central

by Rich Keller, posted Apr 21st 2010 1:30PM
Comedy Central has ordered seven additional episodes of 'Ugly Americans'Good news for those of you hanging out after 'South Park' to watch 'Ugly Americans': Comedy Central has decided to pick up some more episodes of the animated, horror-comedy.

But before you go apoplectic with excitement, the network has ordered just seven additional installments. However, with the amount of time it takes for some animated shows to be produced, and the fact that this is cable, that's almost like a full-season order.

The show, which is a pseudo-workplace comedy about a social worker who helps humans, vampires and demons (among other unusual creatures) integrate into the normal world, has been fairly steady at about 2 million viewers. With 'South Park' garnering an average of million viewers (ages 18-49), 'Ugly Americans' is holding around half the audience. With the continued success of 'South Park' and new episodes of 'Futurama' on the horizon, 'Ugly Americans' looks to be in good animated company.

The new episodes will begin airing on Comedy Central in October.

'South Park's' '200' Continues This Week

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 19th 2010 11:29AM
South ParkThere are very minor spoilers in the following paragraphs. You have been warned.

For those who watched this past week's episode of 'South Park' titled '200,' you know that the episode ended on a cliffhanger. However, there was no indicator that it would be continued into the next episode as the words "to be continued" nor scenes from next week nor any indicator were anywhere to be found. It would be just like Trey Parker and Matt Stone to pull a prank like this (such as the 'Not Without My Anus' gag in the first season).

The good news is that the story most definitely will continue this week in an episode titled "201," which makes sense since it's the 201st episode. Ain't It Cool posted some information about the episode in "inviso-text." Feel free to hightlight the text and get a clue about what's going to happen, unless of course you're spoiler-phobic.

Of course, this could all be another massive prank by the creators. Find out on Wednesday.

Five of the Creepiest Real Life Versions of Famous Cartoons

by Danny Gallagher, posted Apr 15th 2010 6:03PM
The real life Mr. GarrisonIn TV, there are two distinct worlds: our world and the cartoon world. So far, we've gotten along pretty well because, for the most part, cartoons have kept their animated butts in their world.

We don't allow it to happen very often because when cartoons try to invade the real world on those rare occasions, the transference is nightmarish. Their distorted animated features and expressions can make 'Eraserhead' look like an Olson Twins movie.

Here are five of the creepiest looking and sounding real life cartoon crossovers that will have you bleaching your brain with the magic of Clorox 2.

Here's a Preview of 'South Park's' 200th Episode

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 11th 2010 1:27PM
This coming Wednesday brings us the 200th episode of 'South Park.' When the show reached 100 episodes, there wasn't really a big celebration other than a mention at the end. This time it looks like co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are celebrating their own longevity by returning every celebrity their show has ever insulted for a class action lawsuit against the town.

A special website has been set up in promotion of the event in which fans can upload their own videos. Trey and Matt have even been interviewed for this milestone by The New York Times.

Two hundred episodes is a long time for a series to last with its original creators still running the show, particularly when the show only produces 14 episodes per year. Comedy Central has released a video preview of the 200th episode. Which 'South Park' moment has been your favorite?
