COMEDY CENTRAL(R) Wins Three Big Primetime Emmy(R) Awards for Long-Time Favorites 'The Daily Show' and 'South Park'

'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' Cited Again for Program and Writing, Bringing Emmy Awards Total to Thirteen

Previous Three-Time Emmy-Winning Animated Hit Show 'South Park' Makes It Four

NEW YORK, Sept. 21 -- COMEDY CENTRAL earned three awards in the 2008-2009 Primetime Emmy(R) Awards competition, announced at last night's telecast by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (ATAS).

Multiple Emmy-winner "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," the network's unique news parody series, won this year in two categories: Outstanding Variety, Music Or Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing For A Variety, Music Or Comedy Series. This brings the grand total of Primetime Emmys for the "Daily Show" to thirteen and, with seven consecutive wins for Program, makes "The Daily Show's" record of consecutive wins one of the longest in Emmy history. The program is also a two-time winner of the prestigious Peabody(R) Award for Excellence in Broadcasting.

Already a three-time Emmy-winner (with nine nominations) "South Park," the adult animation phenomenon that is home to Kyle, Stan, Kenny and Cartman, received its fourth Emmy, winning this year in the category of Outstanding Animated Program For Programming Less Than One Hour for the "Margaritaville" episode. The irreverent show, now in its 13th season, remains COMEDY CENTRAL's highest rated show.

The Emmy Awards were presented in two ceremonies. The first, primarily for creative arts categories, took place on Saturday, September 12, while the balance of the Emmys, primarily for the performing arts, were announced before a black-tie audience during a primetime telecast (CBS) on Sunday, September 20.
