Comedy Central has released their fall schedule, and while most of it is par for the course, there are a couple interesting pieces of information in there. The renewals, of course, come as no surprise: The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Drunk History, Tosh.0, This Is Not Happening, The Half Hour, @midnight and The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail have all been renewed for the upcoming season. One renewal of note, however, is South Park, which is celebrating its (prepare to feel really, really old) 20th season on air. For nearly 20 years, Trey Parker and Matt Stone have managed to roast American society to its core, all the while pushing the boundaries of comedy and free speech to their absolute limits.
To mark the occasion, Comedy Central has thrown together a beautiful, nostalgia-packed trailer featuring clips from South Park, both young and old, that help to encapsulate all that the show has gone through during these past 19 seasons. Check that out below:
The other interesting bit of news involves the network’s new shows. On top of Legends of Chamberlain Heights, which was renewed back in July before it even debuted, (see our new interview with the creators). Comedy Central has also added Kevin Hart Presents: Hart of the City to its lineup. Hart of the City is similar to travel shows like Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, with Hart traveling to cities across the U.S (and possibly abroad) to explore the local comedy scene and check out some of the industry’s most promising young voices. Hart is a funny guy who has an eye for talent, so this show has potential to be not only hilarious, but informative as well.
Keep an eye out for these shows as they begin to premiere throughout the next month or so, and check out Comedy Central’s website for more information.
