Comedy Central Pulled South Park Episode “201″ Off The Air Amidst Controversy.
It is also possible that Comedy Central wouldn’t be airing both “200 and “201″ anymore. In addition to that both episodes might never be allowed to stream at South Park Studios. Episode “200″ is now unavailable on iTunes Store.
Comedy Central has pulled South Park Episode “201″ off the air, they will be showing “You Have 0 Friends” instead. At this point I cannot confirmed if Comedy Central aired “201″ on Thursday night at 10:00 PM, the usual Thursday slot for new Episodes of South Park following the Wednesday Premiere and Midnight Encore. Usually South Park Studios provides stream tho the broadcast version of new episodes shortly after it premiers on Comedy Central. Within a day the uncensored versions are made available for streaming. Unfortunately Comedy Central has decided not to allow South Park Studios to stream Episode “201″ in its broadcast and in its original (uncensored) version.
South Park fans also unable to watch the Episode “201″ at South Park Studios site due to Comedy Central’s disapproval. Instead, fans of the show are downloading “201″ from numbers of sites that provide the Episode recorded from its original broadcast on Wednesday April 21st, 2010.
Comedy Central is certainly choosing the safest path to walk on, even though it proves to be unpopular among South Park fans. Comedy Central has yet to release any official statement regarding its decision to censor the episode. In the end Comedy Central must have believed that censoring and pulling off the Episode off the air are the right thing to do.
If you feel compelled to say something to Comedy Central, please do so in a civilized manner. Remember that The United States of America values the Freedom of Speech. Comedy Central has the right to censor any South Park Episodes, and you have the right to tell them how you feel about it.
