SERIES

Wednesday, 3/17 at 10:00 p.m.

Fourteen seasons later, Cartman, Kyle, Stan and Kenny are still just as twisted as ever.

"Ugly Americans" - Series Premiere

Wednesday, 3/17 at 10:30 p.m.

It's happened to everyone: you move to a new city and you need a place to live so you find a roommate on Craigslist�and then you're living with a zombie. Business as usual, right? In COMEDY CENTRAL's all-new animated series "Ugly Americans," a social worker in the Department of Immigration helps all newcomers - human or not - adjust to life in the Big Apple. Prepare to meet some of the ugliest Americans ever.

Stand-Up Specials

"Danny Bhoy: Subject to Change" - World Television Premiere

Saturday, 3/6 at 10:00 p.m.

What happens when an Indian, a Scot and a comic all walk into a bar? Join COMEDY CENTRAL for the premiere of Scotland's favorite Indian comedian, Danny Bhoy, and get his take on bagpipes, why he acts like a Frenchman when he's in America and the reason behind his intense love of accents.

"Dan Cummins: Crazy with a Capital F" - World Television Premiere

Saturday, 3/13 at 11:00 p.m.

Live from his current hometown of Spokane, Washington, the quirky Dan Cummins performs his uniquely cynical brand of observational humor for a sold-out crowd. Join Dan as he explores the joys of drunk-gifting yourself, the absurdity of iPod vending machines and the perils of the "Tooth Gremlin."

"Dana Carvey: Squatting Monkeys Tell No Lies" - Network Television Premiere

Saturday, 3/20 at 11:00 p.m.

Dana Carvey is back with his unique take on public figures, parenting, disastrous vacations and Scientology in this new one-hour special. Ever think about penguin-izing Dick Cheney or how Andy Rooney would hit a J? Well, Carvey has.

"Joe Rogan: Talking Monkeys in Space" - COMEDY CENTRAL Premiere

Saturday, 3/27 at 10:00 p.m.

Joe Rogan admits he doesn't know everything, but at least he's honest - he knows how to memorize things that smart people have already figured out. In the Network Television Premiere of his hour-long special taped in Columbus, Ohio, the philosophical everyman waxes poetic on drugs, making babies and why people are just a bunch of talking monkeys.

MOVIES

"National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" - COMEDY CENTRAL Premiere

Friday, 3/5 at Midnight

Starring Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Juliette Lewis and Randy Quaid. The Griswolds are preparing for a Christmas celebration to remember�but then, when have plans ever run smoothly for Clark and his family?

STUNTS

"South Park Gets Real"

Tuesday, 3/2 from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Tired of the same old reality TV? Good, because COMEDY CENTRAL's bringing viewers four "South Park" episodes that make "Jersey Shore" look like "Teletubbies." Get to know the coolest kids in town tonight when "South Park Gets Real."

"The United Nations of COMEDY CENTRAL"

Saturday, 3/6 from 8:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.

COMEDY CENTRAL has imported comedians from all over the world (or, at least, Canada, Mexico, England and New Zealand) to honor the arrival of one hilarious multi-cultural mutt. Enjoy hour-long specials from Russell Peters, Gabriel Iglesias, Russell Brand and Rhys Darby, and celebrate the World Premiere of Indo-Scottish comic Danny Bhoy's very own debut special at 10:00 p.m.

"South Park's Hidden Identity"

Tuesday, 3/9 from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

In a judgmental town like South Park, it's not always safe to be yourself. Super heroes, super villains, spies and demons must all pose as mild-mannered citizens in order to protect their greater efforts. Uncover the alter egos of such classic characters as the Coon, Professor Chaos, the Succubus and Marjorine, when COMEDY CENTRAL reveals "South Park's Hidden Identity."

"Futurama: Monsters, Mutants and Aliens, Oh My!" (working title)

Sunday, 3/14 from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

It's monsters versus aliens, COMEDY CENTRAL style. Join Fry, Leela and Bender as they navigate their way through this universe and the next, dealing with aliens, sentient blobs, time travel, Slurm, Nibblonians, parallel versions of themselves and, of course, Captain Zapp Brannigan. It's a cornucopia of intergalactic warfare and galaxy-to-galaxy delivery on the Planet Express in "Futurama."

"South Park Marathon" (working title)

Sunday, 3/14 from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.

Vicious monsters and diabolical aliens may inhabit planets in the alternate universes of "Futurama," but that hasn't stopped them from visiting the small American town of South Park. Stop by everybody's favorite city in Colorado this Sunday night for some close encounters of the funny kind.

"South Park Stunt" (working title)

Monday, 3/15 & Tuesday from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. & Wednesday, 3/17 from 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

A fresh new season of "South Park" is almost upon the world, and what better way to prepare for the new adventures than with a look back at some of COMEDY CENTRAL's favorite moments to date? Join in for a three-day-long celebration of "South Park-ian" classics.

"South Park's Ultimate Fighter"

Tuesday, 3/23 from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

The best fights this year won't happen in any ring or eight-sided cage. Viewers won't see them on YouTube or in Tiger Woods's driveway, either, because they're all on COMEDY CENTRAL tonight! Check out the four best fights in cartoon history with "South Park's Ultimate Fighter."

"Saturday Night Fights" (working title)

Saturday, 3/27 from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Are viewers ready to rummmmmble?? COMEDY CENTRAL's getting a little bit tougher: forget the dangers of seedy comedy clubs and heckling fans, because the network is pitting comic against comic in a knock-out, no-holds-barred death match. Watch comics like Joe Rogan and Carlos Mencia or Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy settle old scores and create new wounds every Saturday night.

"Grudge Match"

Saturday, 3/27 from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

It's opening night, and Ned "Carlos" Mencia faces the mighty Joe "Fear Factor" Rogan in an epic battle of vengeance. Rogan may have accused Mencia of plagiarism but tonight Mencia will take the first swing with his hour-long comedy special, "Performance Enhanced" at 9:00 p.m. But does "Men-steal-ia," as Rogan calls him, have what it takes to suppress Rogan's powerful blows? Find out at 10:00 p.m., with the Network Television Premiere of Rogan's "Talking Monkeys in Space."

"South Park Gets Punked"

Tuesday, 3/30 from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Pranks are fun�Unless, of course, Eric Cartman is the one doing the pranking. Whether he's dressed as a robot or putting balls in his mouth, there's no denying that Ashton Kutcher's got nothing on Cartman. Watch the most dangerous kid in town take it way too far when "South Park Gets Punked."
