NEW YORK, December 4, 2007 — ‘Tis the holiday season and COMEDY CENTRAL is in the giving mood! So much so that the network has decided twelve days of Christmas just isn’t enough – they’re going for thirteen!
From December 12 through December 24, check out “COMEDY CENTRAL’s 13 Days of Xmas” each night at 9:00 p.m. for a holiday programming gift from the network to its viewers. Deck the halls with “South Park” or “The Sarah Silverman Program,” those crazy “Jackass” boys or some sweet dance moves from “Napoleon Dynamite.” Viewers will have to tune in to see what else they’re getting. Don’t shake the TV to try and guess!
On Tuesday, December 25, beginning at 8:00 a.m., COMEDY CENTRAL presents “Get Sleighed Christmas.” Take a break from all of the holiday hoopla today and kick back with COMEDY CENTRAL. Whether the house is crammed with crazy relatives or it’s just another day off with no malls open and nothing to do, COMEDY CENTRAL has wrapped up the perfect combination of stand-up, hit series and movies to help keep viewers sane. The day is packed from beginning to end with holiday-themed episodes of “MADtv,” stand-up specials from Demetri Martin, Jeff Dunham, Bill Engvall and Ron White, a stocking stuffer of “Scrubs” episodes and a few favorite holiday movies!
From Wednesday, December 26 through Thursday, December 27, don’t miss “South Park: Season’s Best” from 9:30 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. both days. COMEDY CENTRAL has only two days and ten episodes to give viewers the best of “South Park.” Be sure to tune in and find out what the network thinks is each season’s best episode from seasons one through ten.
This New Year’s Eve, ease any guilt about breaking New Year’s resolutions before even making them by watching everyone’s favorite foul-mouth fourth-graders cause mayhem in “South Park Goes Out With Bang,” Monday, December 31 from 9:30 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. First at 9:30 p.m., Cartman is shipped off to a camp for overweight youngsters. At 10:00 p.m., a lame anti-smoking presentation has an opposite effect on the boys, who light up and end up burning the school down. At 10:30 p.m., an Indian casino brings down the town of “South Park.” Jimmy learns just how far he’ll fall after he gets hooked on performance-enhancing steroids to help him compete in the Special Olympics at 11:00 p.m. At 11:30 p.m., after winning a national essay contest, Cartman tries to beef up with weight gain 4000 for a TV appearance with Kathie Lee Gifford. So turn off the treadmill, grab a slice of chocolate cake and get ready for a night of bad habits.
On January 1 between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 a.m., kick back and relax with “National Hangover Day.” It may be a New Year, but last night was an all-nighter. While everyone else might be shoveling down black-eyed peas with aspirin and seltzer water, COMEDY CENTRAL’s got something a little more potent. Classic comedy movies like “Superstar,” “Zoolander,” “Legally Blonde” and “Austin Powers” will help viewers detox and jump start a very happy 2008.
