Unlike most American TV networks, Comedy Central tends to run a given series in a given timeslot only until it runs out of new episodes, then rotate in something else until ''that'' runs out of new episodes. Only the news(ish?) shows, ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' and ''Series/{{Tosh0}}'' are exempt from this.

The Comedy Central "brand" is also used for Viacom comedy channels in New Zealand, Latin America and much of Europe. In the UK and Ireland, it's a recent renaming for the station formerly known as Paramount Comedy. (Incidentally, it's one of the few UK networks that are their US counterpart InNameOnly -- the bulk of the US network's original programming usually finds itself on other channels first, if they make it to Comedy Central at all.)

Comedy Central is a [[{{Networks}} network]] on U.S. cable/satellite TV, created by a merger between Creator/{{Viacom}}'s HA! and Time Warner's Comedy Channel (launched by Creator/{{HBO}}) in [[TheNineties the early 1990s]] (Viacom bought out Time Warner's 50-percent stake in 2003). [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin It tends to have a lot of comedy shows and movies]], including [[RecordedAndStandUpComedy Stand-Up Comedy]] showcases, [[SitCom sitcoms]] and SketchComedy. Their content includes reruns from other channels (such as ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' and more recently, ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia''), but most of their best-known shows are originals.

* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', the network's first original show and a holdover from before "Comedy Channel" from before it and "HA! Network" merged to create Comedy Central. Later did a ChannelHop to Sci Fi Channel.

It has thus far successfully avoided even coming close to NetworkDecay, at least partly because comedy is such a broad topic, though the network has come under fire for airing comedy shows that heavily rely on shock value to be funny, like ''Mind of Mencia'' [[note]]though that show is now treated as an OldShame and Mencia himself is the butt of many jokes[[/note]], ''Series/MADtv'' reruns [[note]]especially by viewers who were used to seeing ''Saturday Night Live'' reruns on Comedy Central, though the show itself stopped rerunning after 2010[[/note]], the Comedy Central [[TheRoast Roasts]] after the one honoring Creator/PamelaAnderson, ''Tosh.0'', and ''{{Brickleberry}}''[[note]]''South Park'' was also accused of using shock value to be funny, but is now considered as smart and subversive as ''TheSimpsons'' used to be, if not more[[/note]].
