"SOUTH PARK" RETURNS WITH EIGHT NEW EPISODES
BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22 AT 10:00 P.M.* ON COMEDY CENTRAL®
NEW YORK, October 7, 2003 "South Park" is back and, in a blatant attempt to ride the coattails of all the new hit shows with a fashionable queer sensibility, "South Park" is gay! Black culture is out and so are the fab four! Cartman, Kyle, Stan and Kenny continue to wreak havoc in their small mountain town when all-new episodes begin airing on Wednesday, October 22 at 10:00 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL. Now, they'll be doing it with style!
In the first episode, entitled "South Park Is Gay," the whole town celebrates the new, hip metro sexual craze. Everyone is suddenly hot to be gay! Cartman, Stan, Kyle and Kenny are in fierce competition to see who can be the gayest, while Mr. Garrison responds with, "If straight people are gonna steal our culture, then us REAL gays are just gonna have to step it up a notch!"
Smack in the middle of its 7th season, "South Park" continues to satirize American life. In the new line-up, the boys take on Rob Reiner and the anti-smoking hysteria and explore the issue of the elderly and their apparent vendetta against farmer's markets.
