Episode 905 Press Release
A winning season and overzealous parents threaten to ruin the entire summer, when the boys of South Park head to the State Championship in an all new episode of South Park entitled "The Losing Edge," premiering Wednesday, April 6 at 10:00 p.m. on Comedy Central.

The kids desperately want an end to the boring baseball season. The problem is they've won so many games that now they're in the playoffs. Just one loss would mean the season's finished and the''d be free from America's favorite pastime for the entire summer.

Chat with Matt Stone!
Join us tomorrow (April 5th) for a live chat with Matt Stone. He'll be there from approximately 5pm to 6pm Pacific Time. (That's Pacific time, so add one hour if you're in Mountain Time, two for Central, and three for Eastern.)

Cashgrab!
Ever wonder what the folks here at South Park Studios do to keep everybody happy when they're working long hours to bring you the next awesome episode? Some companies have a softball team, but here at South Park Studios we play a little game called Cashgrab. Here's it works: Trey draws a name out of a box and that person gets 21 seconds in a plexiglas box to grab all of the swirling cash they can while music blares, strobe lights flash and the rest of the staff yells "Hurry Up!".

We've got some pictures of this fun game in our Office Photos section (click here!)

!ask When is Lemmiwinks coming back?

A computer will be keeping track of all questions asked, so please do not re-ask your question within a short period of time, or else we will most definately not select it.
