"SOUTH PARK" KICKS OFF ITS SEVENTH SEASON WITH SEVEN NEW EPISODES
BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19 AT 10:00 P.M. ON COMEDY CENTRAL®
Seventh Season To Include The Series' Landmark 100th Episode
NEW YORK, March 3, 2003 -- "South Park" returns with more action, more social satire, more life lessons and more of those four lovable boys, Cartman, Kyle, Stan and Kenny! In this, the seventh season of the groundbreaking series, "South Park" joins the exclusive ranks of those who have reached the 100th episode mark. "South Park's" all-new episodes begin airing on Wednesday, March 19 at 10:00 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL. The 100th episode is scheduled to air Wednesday, April 9 at 10:00 p.m.
Cartman shines this season as he represents the United States in a youth-oriented mock UN, sponsored by Michael Jackson. In other episodes, Cartman travels back in time to face-off with the country's founding fathers and, if that weren't enough for the average fourth grader, he's forced to deal with the pressures of stardom when one of his body parts becomes too famous for its own good.
Not to be outstaged by the big-boned one, when Jimmy and Timmy feel they aren't getting the respect they deserve, they join the "Crips." And finally, in a horrifying holiday episode, "South Park" explores the origins of every child's darkest fantasy, the Easter Bunny.
Launched in 1997, "South Park" remains the highest-rated series on COMEDY CENTRAL. "South Park" repeats Fridays at 12:00 a.m., Saturdays at 10:30 p.m. and 2:00 a.m., and Sundays at 11:00 p.m.
