'Ghost Hunters' get roasted on 'South Park'

A new season of South Park premieres tonight, and it promises to be an offensive, tastelessly topical episode.  Just the way we like it.

Matt Stone and Trey Parker return tonight, presumably with their take on the "summer of death." In the episode, Ike is being tormented by dead celebrities, so Kyle and the guys bring in professional ghost hunters to snuff out the otherworldy interlopers.

Can it be? Might we see South Park-ized versions of Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson from Syfy's
Ghost Hunters?  Maybe this is Stone and Parker's chance to haze the TAPS crew after the two shows tied each other in the ratings last October.
Considering the Rhode Island connection, Family Guy might have been a more appropriate show for a ghost hunters' spoof, but still, if there was ever any doubt about the Syfy show's place in paranormal pop culture, it ends now.  Can a Saturday Night Live hosting gig be far behind?

A new episode of Ghost Hunters airs at 9 p.m., and South Park follows it up at 10 p.m. on Comedy Central.
