There’s No New ‘South Park’ Tonight Because Of A Power Outage At South Park Studios

See, the thing about trying to turn around episodes of your beloved animated comedy in just under a week is…

On Tuesday night, South Park Studios lost power. From animation to rendering to editing and sound, all of our computers were down for hours and we were unable to finish episode 1704 “Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers” in time for air tonight. Trey Parker said, “It sucks to miss an air date but after all these years of tempting fate by delivering the show last minute, I guess it was bound to happen.” [South Park Studios]

And so, instead of running a new episode tonight at 10 p.m., Comedy Central will run an encore presentation of “Scott Tenorman Must Die,” which will also be live-tweeted from the South Park Twitter account. There’s still a chance this could turn out to be pretty cool. I suppose we’ll see.
