SOUTH PARK Finally Misses a Deadline Due to Power Outage; New Episode Will Not Air Tonight

It’s no secret that South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone craft each new episode from inception to air in six days time, delivering each installment within hours of airtime; the documentary chronicling their process is even called The Making of South Park: 6 Days to Air.  Well for the first time in the show’s history, Parker and Stone have missed that deadline due to a power outage in the studio, and a new episode of South Park will not be airing this evening.  Hit the jump for more, including when you can see “Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers.”

south-park-gothOn Tuesday night, South Park Studios lost power and Parker and Stone were unable to complete the newest episode, “Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers,” in time for tonight’s air date.  Parker released the following statement on the show’s website:

“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.”

Comedy Central will instead be airing an encore of “Scott Tenorman Must Die” tonight, and “Goth Kids 3” will air next Wednesday.  Ironically, the production switched up its schedule this year in order to lessen the stress on Parker and Stone.  Traditionally, each season was broken up into two batches of 7 episodes that were produced and aired in the spring and fall, making the duo go through the rigorous process twice each season.  This year, the 17th season is only comprised of 10 episodes that are produced and will air straight through.

Missing tonight’s deadline is not the end of the world, and as Parker said, this was bound to happen at some point; it’s a miracle they made it this long without missing a deadline.  Hopefully “Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers” will be worth the wait when it airs next week.  In the meantime, enjoy Cartman being classically terrible tonight in “Scott Tenorman Must Die.”  If you’ve never seen The Making of South Park: 6 Days to Air, I highly suggest you check it out.

    Didn’t the Power go out in their building? No need for the shock (misleading) title for the article. Those guys are professionals.

    • Dave Hill

      …..you read the title of the article right?

      • Reijanrobo

        They have changed it since folks complained about it on Facebook, twitter and on here. Which is a good thing. Thank you by the way Collider. :)

        What was it before?

      • Frank

        It was literally the exact same thing now, sans “because of a power outage.”

      • twocharacters

        Oh. Well, that’s not misleading. It’s a bit attention grabbing but I’m pretty sure the first thing they teach you in elementary school about writing headlines is that you need to grab the audience’s attention.

        What total bull, if you didn’t notice goth kids 3 is in the old south park format,
        it isn’t the same as the rest of the season 17, that was clue 1 mat and tray left us,
        clue two is season 17 episode 5,, the Reason they missed their first ever deadline is simple,, they was made to change their Obama care episode, watch season 17 episode 5, it’s a big clue, normally south park would just show Obama and do what they like,, what’s going on with America Obama needs to GO.

      How was that misleading? Power goes out, forces missed deadline. There was no mislead in the title what so ever. Stop looking for things to critique so much cause you miss the obvious right in front of your face.

      • This Guy

        They fixed the original title which was misleading. No mention of a power outage.

      • That guy

        Does no one know what “misleading” means? It means that you led someone in the wrong direction. Nothing about the original title was misleading. Did they miss their deadline? Will the show not air tonight? Yes and yes. No misdirection whatsoever.

        What happened here is that some people with overactive imaginations and big ol’ chips on their shoulders(this IS Collider after all) confused the headline’s simplicity with some sort of evil plot to make this whole thing sound more scandalous than it was by not explaining all of the gritty details. So, basically, they wanted the headline to be the article. Because who the hell knows.

        Do you even know what misleading means? Because misleading is not lying: it’s leaving out information to try and alter someone’s thought process and making things appear different than they really are.

        Statement 1: 4K resolution offers a much higher pixel density resulting in a clearer picture and increased viewing pleasure.

        Statement 2: Everyone will benefit from 4K resolution.

        Statement 3: 4K resolution offers a clearer picture than traditional HD, but largely depends on screen size and viewing distance.

        1: Misleading
        2: Lie
        3: Accurate information

        The above statements I gave were field tested and people who were told statement one generally believed afterwards they needed and would get a 4K TV in the near-future. Exactly like you said. Misleading leads you in the wrong direction and they have been.

    Whenever I see the words “hit the jump” I know that I am on a crappy blog that will never be profitable, and written by a writer who doesn’t care that he will never be off food stamps.
