For the first time in South Park's 17-season history, creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker missed the deadline to complete an episode, Comedy Central announced Wednesday.
Instead of the previously scheduled new episode, "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers," a repeat of...
Of all the fantastical things TV brings into our lives, nothing indulges the imagination quite like cartoons. Whether timely (South Park) or timeless (Looney Tunes), animation can truly take us anywhere. The rules — and the budgets — of conventional television don't apply. In short, we just can't help being drawn to them. In honor of TV Guide Magazine's 60th anniversary, we present our list of the best and, often quite literally, the brightest:
HBO's Behind the Candelabra cleaned up at Sunday's Creative Arts Emmy Awards, winning eight trophies at the ceremony.
Among the Liberace biopic's accolades in the Miniseries, Movie or Special genre were Outstanding Casting, Outstanding Costumes, Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup and Outstanding Sound Editing.
Bada bing! The Writers Guild of America has named HBO's The Sopranos, created by David Chase, the best-written TV series of all time. Members of the WGA's West and East coast chapters — folks who obviously know a thing or two about writing TV shows — evaluated hundreds of dramas, comedies, miniseries (six hours or more), daytime serials, animation, variety series, talk shows and kids' programs to come up with an unprecedented, exhaustive list of TV's top 101.
South Park co-creator Trey Parker was a no-show for a hearing in Hawaii against the man accused of burglarizing his home, according to the Associated Press.
Former Kauai police officer Joseph Bonachita is accused of breaking into Parker's Wailua home back in 2009. He's also being accused of threateneing Parker and an unnamed woman with a knife. Parker was supposed to testify in court last week, but didn't show up because he apparently had a scheduling conflict.
Who are the funniest people? That's the question Rolling Stone answers in its list of the 50 funniest people around now. From actors to comedians, Twitterers, TV hosts and more, the list was compiled based on the funniest people who are currently active.
Coming in at No. 1 is...

E.T.s, go home! Less out-of-this-world than out of its league, ABC's The Neighbors (9:31/8:31c) stands out on the network's celebrated Wednesday comedy lineup like a wart on a hand model. Cheerfully ridiculous and unapologetically moronic, this aliens-among-us sitcom follows a long and mostly proudly silly TV tradition that includes Mork & Mindy, ALF and 3rd Rock From the Sun. Nothing wrong with a goofy guilty pleasure in the right circumstances and if blessed with the genius of a John Lithgow or a Robin Williams — or an ALF.
Those big, clunky on-screen bugs pop up for a few seconds at the start of every TV show, often serving up a hefty dose of alphabet soup: TV-MA-L for South Park, TV-PG-L for Celebrity Apprentice, TV-PG-DL for GCB and TV-14-D-L-S-V for Bones. But if you're like most TV viewers, you probably pay no attention to TV's content ratings system, or even know what those letters stand for.

You know how Ellis, the smarmy assistant-from-hell on Smash, has become the most reviled character on TV this season? That's only because most people haven't been subjected yet to Best Friends Forever, the poisonous new sitcom NBC is launching tonight (8:30/7:30c) in the deep, deep rabbit hole of its woeful Wednesday night lineup — which has already claimed the much more enjoyable (though virtually invisible) Bent, ending its run tonight (9/8c) after only three weeks of back-to-back episodes.
