I'm not saying the drop will be sudden and this will be the last year, but I do believe this is the beginning of the end.
I am quite a die-hard South Park fan, but I can't remember any episode in a long, long time where Chef actually was. Come to think of it, the last episode I remember him starring was the Japanese martial arts episode (and even there he just walked by).
I actually thought he had quit a long time ago, which tells me South Park will be fine (or at least they won't jump the shark because of Hayes leaving). As long as they produce gems like "Scientology", "Best Friends Forever", "Do the Handicapped go to Hell?" + "Probably", "Wall-Mart" and my all-time favorite "Woodlands Creatures Christmas Special" - I'll be watching
