* The whole ''SouthPark'' "201" debacle. For a network that prides itself on being bold and willing to tackle anything no matter how controversial, it sure is puzzling that they not only censored references to/images of Muhammad, but also censored any criticism of anyone that would perform such censorship (such as, say, ComedyCentral). Quite the Headscratcher, especially as the network continually promotes itself as being edgy and willing to take on anyone.

Just complaining. This is about fridge logic-y questions, not griping.
* The whole ''SouthPark'' "201" debacle. How many times over the years has Comedy Central patted itself on the back for being bold and willing to tackle anything no matter how controversial? We've all lost count by now, but with this instance, it became undeniable how hypocritical and spineless they are. Wussing out (again!) on showing Muhammad is bad enough, but they also censored dialogue in "201" that had nothing to do with him. Instead, it was about fear and intimidation (and supposedly had some digs at the network in the process). The two-parter has been banned from the airwaves ever since and reportedly, the censorship will continue with the Season 14 DVD set. So the question remains, why does Comedy Central feel the need to keep pissing off the creators of one of their most successful shows?

* Their new logo is a rip-off of the Chicago Cubs. Not that I mind ripping things off, but the ''Chicago Cubs''?
