“South Park”

Premiere of the 21st season of the adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone that revolves around four boys and their bizarre adventures, with profanity, dark humor and satire on a wide range of topics. Episodes are typically written and produced in the week preceding broadcast, able to quickly reflect topical subjects. In tonight’s season opener, protesters armed with tiki torches and Confederate flags take to the streets of South Park, and Randy comes to grips with what it means to be white in today’s society. 10 p.m. Wednesday on the Comedy Channel.
