Re: South Park Ending?

After 15 seasons of South Park, looks like creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are hinting that they've had enough, and will be ending the show soon.
This isn't anything new, actually. I remember when South Park was renewed at season 12. Comedy Central didn't want to lose one of its biggest cash cows and forced Parker and Stone into a three year contract.

I believe Parker and Stone wanted to stop at season 13 but it was Comedy Central that wouldn't let that happen. If you watch season 13, it is overall a good season with episodes like "The Coon" and "Fishsticks" (What are you, a gay fish?) and "Whale Whores" (Fuck you whrale!)....

....but season 14 wasn't all that great, imo.... although it does seem to have Parker and Stone (Executive Producers as of Season 13) trying to see how much they can get away with on Comedy Central. Consider the Mohammed episode and "Creme Fraiche".

I haven't enjoyed too much of this season of South Park. Wednesday's episode was the mid-season finale and, since I believe this to be the last season despite no official word, I expect the more controversial stuff to come in the second half of the season.

I expect the show will go on to critique its own benefactor (i.e., Comedy Central) as well as critiquing itself. The episode from the other night was liking the first half of a two-part arc in which both Comedy Central and South Park are scrutinized under light.
