South Park, not a TV programme I am very familiar with but then there are precious few that I can be said to be familiar with, has been censored. "Comedy Central altered a controversial episode of "South Park" that featured the Prophet Muhammad out of security concerns for the show's creators." It seems that as soon as a website, any website, that alleges its spokesmanship for some unnamed Islamist jihadists puts up a threat, the media and the entertainment industry, which usually prides itself on being cutting-edge and controversial just rolls over.

Needless to say the best comment is provided by Chris Muir on Day by Day. Enjoy.
