If you're like me, you turned on Comedy Central today to watch the new episode of South Park, Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers.  I haven't been impressed at all with the 17th season, but I'm still a fan and was looking forward to watching a new episode.  Yet, I sit here with a thirst for the new South Park, as many others.  For the first time in the history of the show, South Park missed it's deadline and wasn't able to air the new episode.  A result of South Park Studios losing power.

"It's lights out for "South Park" episode 1704, "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers."

South Park Studios lost power on Tuesday night, and with their computers down for hours the team could not animate, render, edit or work on sound. As a result they couldn't finish Wednesday night's scheduled episode, which is a first in "South Park" history.

"Scott Tenorman Must Die" will air in its place, and the South Park team will be live-tweeting the show.

"South Park" already tweeted the news to its fans, writing: "Last night, #SouthPark lost power. All computers were down & we were unable to finish the new episode." 

Soon after that the team posted the following: "TONIGHT- we're doing back-to-back LIVE TWEETS of 'World War Zimmerman' & 'Scott Tenorman Must Die' starting at 9:30p EST! #SouthPark"

I blame the government shut down, and as always, Miley Cyrus.
