The Writers Guild of America, West (WGAW) has published a list of the “101 Best Written TV Series”, honoring the outstanding creativity and writing from television’s inception to today’s massive landscape of channels and programs. Out of the 101, two animated series made the list: The Simpsons and South Park.
A power outage at the South Park Studios in Los Angeles prevented this week’s episode of South Park from being finished and delivered to Comedy Central for broadcast. It’s the first time in the 17-year history of the show that they’ve missed a scheduled airdate.
