History

Creation

The Comedy Channel logo.

In November 1989, Time Warner, owners of HBO, launched The Comedy Channel as the first cable channel devoted exclusively to comedy-based programming. In April 1990, Viacom (who owned MTV, VH1, and Nickelodeon) launched an edgier rival channel called HA! After two years of limited distribution, the two channels merged into one, relaunching, fittingly, on April Fool's Day 1991 as CTV: The Comedy Network.[4] However, trademark issues with the Canadian network CTV forced the merged channel to rebrand itself Comedy Central on June 1, 1991[citation needed] (coincidentally, the Canadian channel The Comedy Network is owned by CTVglobemedia, which also owns the Canadian CTV, of which both names were used on the American merged network).

The Comedy Central logo.

From the late 1980s through the mid-1990s, much of the programming on Comedy Central, and its predecessors, consisted of comedy movies and half-hour specials and clip-shows featuring stand up comedians. With the exception of the cult favorite Mystery Science Theater 3000, the channel had a relatively small viewership. A notable early success was Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, which after showing promise on Comedy Central was quickly snapped up by the ABC network.

On April 5, 2006, in a controversial two part episode arc titled "Cartoon Wars Part I" and "Cartoon Wars Part II", South Park touched the issue of the recent Muslim protest over the Danish comic strips depicting the Muslim prophet Muhammad. The image of Muhammad did not appear in the episode. On April 13, 2006, Comedy Central issued a statement[11] which appears to confirm that the network prohibited the show's creators from airing an image of Muhammad. The statement reads, "In light of recent world events, we feel we made the right decision." An anonymous source close to the show indicated that South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone were informed of the policy several weeks earlier, and wrote this story arc in protest.

Criticism

Comedy Central has been a frequent target of criticism from conservative media watchdog group Parents Television Council, which accuses them of racism and blasphemy[15][16], especially within the programs South Park, The Sarah Silverman Program, Halfway Home, and the annual "Roast" special.[17] In fact, the PTC has used their criticisms against Comedy Central for their support of the Family and Consumer Choice Act of 2007, which would allow American cable TV subscribers to choose which channels they subscribe to[18], and to persuade advertisers to stop advertising on the channel.[19] PTC founder and former president L. Brent Bozell III has called the channel unfunny, claiming the channel has managed "to reach the top of its field in spite of – or, better put, because of – the network's sheer lack of comedic talent" due to the channel's extensive reliance on shocking or disgusting humor. [20] The channel has also received criticism from certain parents[21] and feminists[22] for airing advertisements for "Girls Gone Wild". The channel also airs the least cut version of the popular film, Not Another Teen Movie, as well as other films.
