Toronto, Ontario (September 12, 2007) - Holy shit! For the first time anywhere, South Park will air uncensored when Season 11 of the critically-acclaimed, adult animated series premieres Friday, September 28 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on Canada's The Comedy Network. Prior to its premiere on The Comedy Network, uncensored episodes of South Park have only been available via purchase on the U.S. iTunes store.
In the previous 10 seasons of South Park on The Comedy Network, certain adult words were "bleeped." Now, only Canadian viewers get the real deal when the foul-mouthed fourth graders are presented in all of their profane glory. Also, Canadian viewers can now watch Cartman and company on The Comedy Network broadband player at thecomedynetwork.ca. South Park Seasons 1-10 are currently available on demand. Full episodes from Season 11 will be available at 9 a.m. ET the day following each television broadcast.
In its 11th season, South Park remains as reckless, rambunctious and raunchy as ever: Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman stir shit up once again in 14 all-new, royally offensive episodes. In the season premiere, "With Apologies to Jesse Jackson," Randy Marsh tries to find forgiveness after mistakenly using a racial slur on Wheel of Fortune, while Cartman comes to blows with a midget. Not to be outdone, the second episode, "Cartman Sucks," features the "bi-curious" Butters, who is forced to go to a special camp where they "pray the gay away."
More uncensored laughs from South Park Season 11 include:
South Park was honoured with a prestigious George Foster Peabody Award in April, 2006. In announcing the winning programs, the Peabody committee cited South Park as being a "notoriously rude, undeniably fearless lampoon of all that is self-important and hypocritical in American life, regardless of race, creed, colour or celebrity status." South Park is also nominated for a 2007 Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program, which it won in 2005. Launched in 1997 exclusively in Canada on The Comedy Network, South Park recently received a three-season extension from Comedy Central in the U.S.
