Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: November 7, 2012 As SOUTH PARK winds down Season 16, the series hits a homerun with its season finale “Obama Wins!” Since this episode was pretty much done before the outcome of the Presidential election was announced, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone could have been tempting fate with its proclamation and storyline of an Obama win or would have had to do an “alternate ending” of some sort if the Presidential election went in Mitt Romney’s direction.
