  1. It was an Old South Park So Don’t Bother.Honestly How do they expect to Compete against Farmer wants a Wife or Good News Weeks with the repeated many times over version of a Cartoon?Do yourself a favour and watch either one of the other shows over at Nine Or Ten at 8:30pm on a Monday Night

  2. Thanks for posting the update, the TG Supercars were great.

    BTW I just notice Prototype is back when did this happen and why aren’t they airing the eps they missed? Or have they already?

  3. To the previous posters, remember that this is ony fill-in programming because the cricket finished early. I say thanks to SBS for not running new episodes of anytrhing when most people would not even know they were on!

  4. What about some New South Park Episodes Please.

    I had already seen the Anal Probe One many times so switched to Good News Week as that was the only thing not aimed exclusively at Female Audiences worth watching.
