Wednesday TV Picks: 'South Park' returns to Comedy Central
TV Picks for Wednesday, March 28, 2012, include "South Park" on Comedy Central; "Whitney" on NBC; and "NOVA" on KCTS.
Tonight in Prime Time
The long-running animated series is back for a 16th season, ready and willing to offend most anyone. In tonight's episode (titled "Faith Hilling") the boys attend a GOP presidential debate. Yes, this is a cartoon, but do I need to remind you that it is not for children? Or the easily offended? 10 p.m. Wednesday on Comedy Central (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
