Trevor Noah makes his debut as the host of the Emmy(R) and Peabody(R) Award-winning "The Daily Show" on Monday, September 28, and the new animated cop extravaganza series "Moonbeam City" premieres on Wednesday, September 16. Also premiering this fall are all-new seasons of "South Park," "Nathan For You," and "TripTank," as well as an original stand-up special from Steve Rannazzisi.

Wednesday, September 16

"South Park" (Season 19 Premiere) - 10:00 p.m.

Five-time Emmy(R) Award-winner "South Park" returns in its 19th season with 10 all-new episodes.

Tune in to see what Cartman, Kyle, Stan and Kenny get into this season.

"Moonbeam City" (Series Premiere) - 10:30 p.m.

"Moonbeam City" is an absurdist, retro-futuristic 80s cop extravaganza. Comedy Central's new animated series follows Dazzle Novak (voiced by Rob Lowe), a handsome, idiotic detective who commits more crimes than most criminals. His sexy, tyrannical chief Pizzaz Miller (Elizabeth Banks) won't get off his back. His obnoxious rival Rad Cunningham (Will Forte) will stop at nothing to destroy him. Dazzle must team up with the city's only competent police officer, Chrysalis Tate (Kate Mara), to protect their beloved, neon-soaked metropolis.

Wednesday, September 23

"TripTank" (Season Two Premiere) - 11:00 p.m.

"TripTank" showcases a wide range of fast-paced, hard-hitting animated comedy shorts presented in an anthology style, weaving together stand-alone and recurring narrative pieces. Executive produced by ShadowMachine's Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico, "TripTank" season two takes things just a little bit further through a variety of mind-bending animation styles, featuring a broad range of formats including 2D, stop-motion and CGI. Season one favorites 'Suck It Gary,' 'Ricky the Rocketship,' 'Bethiffer,' 'Jeff & Some Aliens' and 'Animal Hitman' are coming back for more, and season two will introduce 'Rest Assured,' created by Mike Clattenberg ("Black Jesus"), among hundreds of other animated shorts. Voice talent this season includes Amy Schumer, Britanny Snow, Margaret Cho, Jemaine Clement, David Cross, Andrew Dice Clay, Key & Peele, Kristen Johnston, Cheryl Hines, Nick Swardson and Niecy Nash.

Monday, September 28

"The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" Premieres - 11:00 p.m.

It's the dawn of a new, exciting era of Comedy Central's groundbreaking late-night franchise as "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" debuts on Monday, September 28 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT. Noah will bring his smooth delivery of cutting-edge comedic commentary in the fresh incarnation of the iconic series. "The Daily Show" will continue its coverage of the day's news and events with the incisive and insightful humor of host Trevor Noah and the incredibly talented roster of "The Best F*&#ing News Team Ever!" including Jordan Klepper, Jessica Williams, Lewis Black, John Hodgman, Al Madrigal, Aasif Mandvi, Hasan Minhaj and Kristen Schaal.

Thursday, October 15

"Nathan For You" (Season Three Premiere) - 10:00 p.m.

"Nathan For You," the series critics have called "insanely brilliant," returns Thursday, October 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT with eight all-new episodes. Self-proclaimed business expert Nathan Fielder helps real small businesses turn a profit with marketing tactics no ordinary consultant would dare to attempt. From creating a rebate that can only be redeemed by climbing a mountain, to founding a coffee shop called "Dumb Starbucks," Nathan has always gone to the limit to make his ideas come to life. In the new season, Nathan will go even further as he attempts to start a nationwide fitness craze, help a hotel cater to sexually active parents, and pull off the most astonishing life transformation ever to be broadcast on television. With his unorthodox approach to problem solving, Nathan's genuine efforts to do good often draw the real people he encounters into an experience far beyond what they signed up for.

In the year 2042, all white people have been transported to The New United States (formerly known as Canada), leaving struggling actor Gary (Matt Braunger) as the last white guy and only Caucasian representative in Los Angeles.
