Just read Comedy Central's schedule.

Wednesday Oct 08 2008

10:00 PM
South Park TBD (1208) TV-MA

10:30 PM
The Sarah Silverman Program High, It's Sarah (213) TV-14


... That IS disappointing. D: I mean, no offense to anyone who might like her but... I don't. IMHO, I'd rather just see a bonus SP episode afterward. xD

Comedy Central have also changed what they said originally:

"South Park" – New Episodes
Wednesday, October 8 at 10:00 p.m.

Last time around, "South Park" gave viewers AIDS, mice with penises attached, Canadians on strike, half of Britney Spears's head, porn-addicted adults and a way to "Cheese Your F-cking brains out!" Now that Cartman and Kyle are cured, Kenny is clean and Stan's dad is, um, satisfied, see what's in store for the boys of South Park in the much anticipated season premiere! Viewers won't want to miss a single new episode. COMEDY CENTRAL's not just sure of it: they're HIV positive.

Disappointing. :(

... Wait. How is THAT disappointing? *rereads it over and over again to try and find it*

... All I got was how they said 'season premiere' rather than 'half-season' or whatnot. Other than that, I think I already expected what they've been saying.

Disappointing in that the episode will not be an hour long. It'll just be the regular half hour. We're all expecting it to be excellent nonetheless. :)

Why should a one-hour-episode make southpark better annyway? When the creators put the same number of ideas into a double-lenght-episode it would end up boring.
No, IMO they are doing fine taking the best ideas and shrinking them to 22 minutes :mrgreen:

Actually I was referring to the other post but... nevermind. XD

I'm a bit disappointed about the episode not being an hour long but... still. I'm going to keep a positive feeling about this. I won't give my hopes up, but I'll be sure to not automatically assume of it being a complete disappointment.

This thread's title should be amended to reflect this change.

Sounds like there was a simple typo from CC that had everyone perked up about an hour long episode. But that was never the case.

Whatever. Still looking forward to season 12.5. :)

What typo might that be?

And why was the typo first seen in the Canadian e-mail reply? It makes parafinalia look bad.

Me too! D: And the counter on the homepage is making it even more unbearable to wait. Dx

I'm pretty sure that whatever happens, I'll be pretty satisfied with the episode.

I personally can't wait for this episode, and I have a feeling it will have something to do with the U.S. presidential candidates because SP has made fun of the situation with the previous two elections and the last episode (Super Fun Time) had nothing to do with politics or current events. And even if it's not about the election, I still think it will be something political.

Also, while I loved the humor in every episode from season 12 so far, I can't help but feel that Matt and Trey will really step it up with the writing in the second half of the season. Season 11 was completely brilliant and I don't think Matt and Trey can ever top themselves after that season, but some of the episodes from season 12 are missing one big thing that made season 11 great. That thing is a great subplot. "Tonsil Trouble", "Britney's New Look", "Canada on Strike", and "Over Logging" are the episodes I'm talking about. They were all great and amazingly funny, but the plots just seemed a little thin. I'm feeling optimistic about the 2nd half of season 12 because of how great "Super Fun Time" was, though.

I'm not sure if they should just cut it out with the multi-parter gimmick. I guess we'll just have to see if it's any good, assuming that it's actually going to happen.

I'm definitely looking forward to the new run. :)

Who said anything about a multi-parter?

And they cut out the "hour-long" part a while ago.
