south park - gets weird, self-indulgent and incredibly obnoxious at times. not to mention, trey & matt doing all the voices is beyond tired. but for all that, the issues raised and satire level are as cutting-edge as it gets.
simpsons - used to be a great show and was single-handedly responsible for all these new shows. hasn't been worth a piss since the late 90's, however.
king of the hill - smart, quality show, but got a little watered down somewhere along the line. awhile back i read that that was because of some network directives.
WINNER - south park, easily. not for charm, but for guts and talent. KOTH is first alternate.
i agree south park is great satirically, but futurama does have a lot of great epidodes. sometimes i interchange between the two, but only because south park has been doing what it does longer. some south park epidodes just dont interest me, but they do a great job at "shocking an unshockable world"
