The 14th season of South Park started on Comedy Central Extra on January 1st and continues to bring the same intense and quality humor to its audience.

Drawn Together – an animated reality show more daring than South Park
Anyone that believed South Park is the most daring animated series will change his mind when watching Drawn Together, an animated series whos characters are performing in a reality show’s frame.
„Drawn Together is the first animated ‚reality’. Here, reality and Big Brother meet with typical characters from cartoons world”, as Variety writes, highlighting the style of the series in which the classical hero (Captain Hero) is joined by Ling-Linget (character that has as model Pikachu character from Pokemon), a copy of Spongebob and others.
The surrealistic world of the „Drawn Together” characters is available to Romanian public each evening, starting 23.45, on Comedy Central Extra.
Ugly Americans – humans, a nymphomaniac demon, vampires and wizards living together
Oposed to „Drawn Together”, that combines in one world different cartoons, „Ugly Americans” presents an anti-utopic world where humans, demons, vampires, phantoms and other bizzare creatures are living together.
„This series is a huge hallucination”, appreciates Variety, while Huffington Post considers that „Ugly Americans is the most promising series” from Comedy Central.
The protagonist of the series is Mark Lily, a social worker that makes everything possible to integrate foreigners. But he also has his personal problems: his room mate is a zombi, his girlfriend is a nymphomaniac demon and, at work, he has as colleague a wizard that is always tipsy and drunk.
In the end, Ugly Americans offers to its viewers a strongly polarized image of the American society. According to critics, beyong the painful humor, the episodes of the show are also abondant in serious messages.
Ugly Americans’ adventures can be followed every night, on Comedy Central Extra, starting 00.05 .
