Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 18, 2012 SOUTH PARK has been so weird and crazy during Season 16, it’s hard what to make of it week to week. Sometimes it’s really funny, other times it’s been getting really weird. And this week, it goes off-the-rails weird – so much so that even though it wasn’t that funny, it still was more interesting than just about anything else on TV this week. “I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining” is set up like one of those reality shows about horrible things happening …Read On »

It’s fitting then that two will go home this week without any saves from the judges. That’s because the judges saved Jessica Sanchez from elimination last week in case you forgot after she placed inexplicably last in votes. This week they are …Read On »

Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) get their act together in the …Read On »
