Episode 1008 Press Release

From today's Comedy Central Press Release:
"South Park" celebrates 10 groundbreaking seasons! The boys immerse themselves into the World of Warcraft(R) as "South Park" joins forces with Blizzard Entertainment(R) to kick-off all new episodes on Wednesday, October 4 at 10:00 P.M. on Comedy Central


The Emmy And Peabody Award-Winning Series Premieres Seven New Episodes

New York, October 2, 2006 -- There's trouble in the online gaming world when the actions of a renegade player threaten to destroy Blizzard Entertainment's(R) award-winning game World of Warcraft(R). The future of the game lies in the hands of Cartman, Kyle, Stan and Kenny when all new episodes in the tenth season of the widely-acclaimed series, "South Park," premiere Wednesday, October 4 at 10:00 p.m. on Comedy Central.

In this episode, the boys come into contact with a gamer who doesn't play by the rules. Even the creative people behind World of Warcraft don't know how to stop the renegade. They are forced to put all of their hope into the hands of the kids of South Park. The boys dedicate their lives to defeating the mad gamer and saving the game for all.

"We were excited to hear that the creators of 'South Park' were interested in featuring World of Warcraft in the opening of their new season and we really enjoyed collaborating with them to make this happen," said Mike Morhaime, president and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "We're looking forward to sharing the experience with our employees and our players as well when the season debuts this week."

World of Warcraft is the world's most popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game, with millions of players worldwide. In World of Warcraft, players assume the roles of legendary heroes as they develop friendships, forge alliances and compete with enemies for power and glory. The game's upcoming expansion pack, World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, is due out by the end of this year. Learn more about World of Warcraft at the game's official Web site: www.worldofwarcraft.com.

Episode 1012 Press Release

From tomorrow's Comedy Central Press Release:
Cartman's latest obsession is literally killing him in an all-new episode of "South Park" on Wednesday, November 1 at 10:00 P.M. on Comedy Central


Cartman's plan to propel himself into the future goes horribly wrong in an all-new "South Park" premiering Wednesday, November 1 at 10:00 p.m. on Comedy Central. South Park Elementary faces strong opposition to the topic of evolution being taught to the 4th graders. The most vocal protests are from Ms. Garrison who has to teach it. Eric Cartman can't be bothered with what's going on in class. He's busy manipulating his own personal time-line to align with the precise release date of the newest, hottest game.
