8. Racist Wheel of Fortune (Season 11, Episode 1)

South Park often conjures up attention-getting scenes – but they'll probably never top the prologue of "With Apologies to Jesse Jackson," an episode semi-inspired by Michael Richards' notorious rant. Randy Marsh is on Wheel of Fortune, having made it to the final round. The episode is airing live. And after guessing his letters, he's facing "N_GGERS" with the category clue of "People Who Annoy You." (The answer is, of course, "Naggers.") Parker and Stone use the shock value of this opening scene for one of their best episodes overall, particularly in the way it examines controversy and the cult of the public apology. BT
