Good afternoon from Los Angeles, wherever you may be. It is 82 degrees and sunny; please stay in New York, or whatever cold place you call home.

Reruns of old TV are the hottest commodities in Hollywood right now. “South Park” is the latest beneficiary of this trend. Old episodes of the animated comedy are being shopped by the show’s creators and Viacom, who expect to garner as much as $500 million.
