Did You Know?


The word "shit" was uttered 162 times. After the episode, the word "shit" was outlawed. According to Trey Parker, even though they may be able to use the word on TV again, the South Park universe has eliminated the word from use. See more »


The show counts 162 times the word "shit" is used, however, the counter at the bottom counts the TV executive taking a breath when he repeats the word numerous times, thus technically the count should be 161. See more »


Cartman: Maybe you didn't hear me, Kyle. I said SHIT. On TELEVISION.

Contains the highest use of the word s**t on television!
26 November 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

I think this episode was an important event in television history.It was not the first time the word s**t was used on TV, but it was definitely the most times it was used.There is a counter in the episode, and according to it, the word s**t is uttered 162 times in this 22min episode...uncensored which is new for South Park.The episode is about this show called "Cop Drama" which is supposed to use the word s**t.The word then becomes acceptable to use.People also seem to be dying, by throwing up their intestines.The boys think it's because of the word.With the help of Chef, they check it out and find that the word caused the black plague.This is an interesting and history-making south park episode!
