MTV Networks, the company behind MTV (no shit), VH1, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, CMT, Spike, and The N, has announced plans to offer every episode of 'South Park', ever, online, for free.
Are you done dancing for joy yet? We'll wait. So here's the deal. SouthParkStudios.com, which currently hosts a small video clip collection as well as some downloadable extras, will include every clip of 'South Park' since its inception. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Just a couple of months ago, 'The Daily Show' went digital with over 13,000 video clips at TheDailyShow.com. That test of the digital waters was very successful. It turned out that hosting the videos online didn't hurt the show's TV ratings. It also turns out that hosting episodes online actually helps shows increase viewership.
