Why 'South Park' Missed Its Episode Deadline for the First Time Ever

"... it was bound to happen."

NEW YORK (AP) — Nothing much interferes with "South Park" lampooning its targets.

But Comedy Central says an ill-timed power outage shut the show down Tuesday night, preventing completion of this week's scheduled episode.

Comedy Central said Wednesday that all the computers at South Park Studios were down for hours, from animation to editing to sound. The planned episode, "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers," couldn't be finished.

A repeat, "Scott Tenorman Must Die," was scheduled Wednesday night instead.

"South Park" co-creator Trey Parker says he regrets missing an air date but acknowledges. But he says after years of tempting fate by delivering the show on a last-minute basis, "I guess it was bound to happen."

"Goth Kids 3" is now scheduled for next week.

"South Park" airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. Eastern.
