Comedy Central's 'South Park,' 'Lil' Bush,' More to Return in March
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Comedy Central has firmed up its spring plans, which include the return of "South Park" and "Lil' Bush" as well as the launch of "Lewis Black's Root of All Evil" and the premiere of "Futurama: Bender's Big Score."

"Park" and "Evil" will both bow on Wednesday, March 12 at 10:00/9:00c and 10:30/9:30c respectively. "Evil" features Black presiding over comedians such as Greg Giraldo, Paul F. Tompkins and Patton Oswalt as they debate who's more evil. Among the "cases": "Oprah vs. The Catholic Church" and "Paris Hilton vs. Dick Cheney."

The following night on Thursday, March 13 look for season two of "Lil' Bush" to kick off at 10:30/9:30c.

While "South Park" and "Lil' Bush" are both scripted, neither production team is a WGA signatory - meaning they are unaffected by the strike.

Also due in March is the broadcast premiere of "Futurama: Bender's Big Score" (Sunday, March 23 at 8:00/7:00c) and the return of new episodes of "Kenny vs. Spenny" (Sunday, March 16 at 11:30/10:30c).

Rounding out the month are the usual mix of stand-up/improv specials: "Tommy Tiernan: Something Mental" (Friday, March 14 at 11:00 p.m.), "Louis C.K.: Shameless" (Saturday, March 15 at 1:00 a.m.), "Upright Citizens Brigade: Asssscat" (Friday, March 21 at 1:00 a.m.) and "Steve Byrne's Happy Hour" (Saturday, March 29 at 11:00 p.m.).
