I kind of disagree. In the first couple of seasons where they didn't make fun of real life events was where the humor was. Sure, they did throw in 1 or 2 every 5th episode but that was a good limit. Now in the current season its just doing it every episode. They should let Family Guy do the satirical enactings of real life events and stick with what they used to do in the earlier seasons.
And, I ask where is the news? South Park is nothing without "swearing and dying children"
