There Was No New “South Park” Last Night…Because for the First Time, Trey Parker and Matt Stone Missed Their Deadline
One of the best things about "South Park" is how unbelievably timely they can be . . . because they regularly write and produce new episodes in LESS THAN A WEEK, and don't turn them in until the day they air.
Well, last night there wasn't a new episode...because for the first time ever, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone failed to make their deadline, thanks to a power outage that knocked out their studio for several hours on Tuesday.
Trey said, quote, "It sucks to miss an air-date, but after all these years of tempting fate by delivering the show last minute, I guess it was bound to happen."
The episode...titled "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers"...will air next Wednesday. In its place last night, Comedy Central re-ran the classic "South Park" episode "Scott Tenorman Must Die".
