'South Park' Renewed for 3 More Years by Comedy Central Through Season 26

'South Park' Renewed for 3 More Years by Comedy Central Through Season 26 "South Park" is sticking around for a few more years. Ahead of its 23rd season, Comedy Central has agreed to a new deal with Matt Stone and Trey Parker to keep the longrunning cartoon for an additional three seasons. That will take "South Park" through Season 26 and 327 episodes. Stone and Parker, as they have since it debuted in 1997, will continue to write, direct and edit every episode. "South Park" is the longest running primetime scripted series on cable and will surpass its 300th episode this season — though that still leaves it some 300 episodes shy (and counting) of that other long-running animated series in "The Simpsons.

With the power of Google Assistant behind it, the Google Home range of smart speakers are great at answering almost any question you put to it. But when something does go awry with your device, it's not like you can just ask, "OK, Google, what's wrong with you?" to figure out a fix. Chances are, however, there's probably a quick and easy solution to whatever issue is plaguing your Google Home speaker or hub.

Kid Rock Pays Tribute to Eddie Money at Late Singer's 'Second Home' Near Detroit: Watch

Kid Rock Pays Tribute to Eddie Money at Late Singer's 'Second Home' Near Detroit: Watch Kid Rock paid tribute to Eddie Money on Friday night (Sept. 13) at a venue that had become an adopted home for the late singer. Rock and his Twisted Brown Trucker band played a version of Money's hard rocking "Shakin'," a hit song from 1982's No Control, during their concert at the Detroit-area DTE Energy Music Theatre, formerly known as Pine Knob. The group accompanied their performance with a video screen photo of Money and the caption 1949-2019. "I'm sure you heard that Eddie Money passed away today," Rock told the crowd.

Although generally pretty reliable, Google Home speakers and displays do glitch out from time to time. Not to mention, they rely on other devices in your home network to function -- your modem and router, smart home hubs and bridges, and your smartphone. If any one of those breaks down -- your router goes kaput or a bridge gets unplugged -- the whole system could crumble.

If your Google Home gear suddenly starts acting up, being obstinate or not responding to anything you say at all, here are three of the most common Google Home problems and how to troubleshoot and fix them.

Inside the Blockbuster $600 Million ‘Big Bang Theory’ Streaming Deal With HBO Max

Inside the Blockbuster $600 Million ‘Big Bang Theory’ Streaming Deal With HBO Max As one of TV’s most popular shows of the past 20 years, “The Big Bang Theory” was sure to command a huge price when the streaming rights were finally shopped in a red-hot market for iconic comedies with large libraries. But “Big Bang Theory” wasn’t shopped widely on the open market before the streaming pact with HBO Max and the four-year cable extension with TBS was announced early Tuesday morning. The reason is because of a provision in the original megabucks syndication deal that TBS set with “Big Bang” back in 2010. Even 10 years ago, that agreement anticipated that streaming services could compete with cable channels for rerun rights.

2. Swipe the Google Home app up and off the screen.

Google Home's ability to tell your family apart by their voices is great, but when it quits working it's time to retrain it. James Martin/CNET© Provided by CBS Interactive Inc.

Google Home doesn't recognize my voice

Your Google Home knows your voice and can recognize all your family members by theirs. Sometimes, however, that system fizzles, and the Google Home can't tell you apart from anyone.

If that happens, retraining the Google Home to recognize your voice again will usually fix the problem.

1. Open the Google Home app.

2. Click your personal icon in the lower right corner.

3. At the bottom of the Google Assistant heading, tap More settings.

4. Tap Assistant in the menu bar at the top.

5. Tap Voice Match > Teach your Assistant your voice again.

6. When a popup asks if you'd like to Cancel or Retrain, choose Retrain.

7. Follow the requests to speak to repeat the training phrases.

Google Home can't connect to my lights or the smart home

For a lot of folks, their Google Home is more than just a smart speaker or display -- it's the brains behind their entire smart home. But when you suddenly can't turn on the lights or the AC with your voice any more, you might start to think a smart home isn't such a genius idea after all. Here's what to do.

'Game of Thrones,' 'Veep' aim for records at Emmy Awards

  'Game of Thrones,' 'Veep' aim for records at Emmy Awards LOS ANGELES (AP) — Get the snacks and a scorecard ready for the 2019 Emmy Awards. As TV academy voters honor what they consider the small-screen's best, viewers can join in by tallying up wins, snubs and records during the no-host, three-hour ceremony airing Sunday at 8 p.m. EDT on Fox. The reward for TV geeks whose predictions pan out at the 71st annual Emmy Awards: no trophy, but bragging rights. There's also the fun of cheering your favorites and rooting against their competitors. Conflicted feelings may loom for "Game of Thrones" fans who loved the series, hated its finale.

First, check if you can control your smart home devices from their individual apps. Brands such as Phillips Hue, Ring Doorbells and Nest Learning Thermostats all have their own respective apps you can use to control their gear. If you're missing one or more of them, go to the App Store or Google Play and download them by searching for the product name.

The growing crowd of smart speakers is ready for your command

If you can't control your smart home directly, make sure the devices you're trying to operate are connected to your network.

BoJack Horseman to End With Season 6 at Netflix — When Will It Premiere?

  BoJack Horseman to End With Season 6 at Netflix — When Will It Premiere? Netflix is putting Hollywoo in the rearview mirror: BoJack Horseman will end with its upcoming sixth season, the streamer announced Friday. BoJack‘s swan song (er, horse song) will be released in two parts. The first half of Season 6 will drop on Friday, Oct. 25, with the remaining episodes debuting on Friday, Jan. 31, 2020. Recently named one of our favorite comedies of the decade, BoJack Horseman stars Will Arnett as the titular equine, the washed-up star of ’90s sitcom Horsin’ Around. Now bitter and jaded, BoJack navigates life in Hollywood alongside slacker sidekick Todd (voiced by Aaron Paul) and on-again-off-again girlfriend Carolyn (Amy Sedaris).

If you can control, for example, your lights from the Hue app, the problem is not likely the bulbs (which means the issue may be with your Google Home).

Next, make sure you're using a mobile device that has the same Google account that is currently linked to the Google Home.

For both iPhones and Android phones

1. Open the Google Home app.

2. Click your personal icon in the lower right corner.

3. Verify the current account listed is the same Google account that is linked to the Google Home.

4. If not, tap the arrow button next to the account name and select the account that is linked to the Google Home.

5 new Google Assistant actions for your home and phone

When all else fails, reboot your whole network. Unplug everything, wait about three minutes, then go back and plug in everything one at at time in the following order, waiting for each to power on completely before starting up the next:

1. Your modem.

2. Your router (if it's separate from your modem).

3. Any smart home hubs or bridges.

4. Your smart home gear, including smart bulbs, switches, locks, doorbells and cameras.

Hopefully these tips will help keep your Google Home running smoothly for a long, long time. Shout out in the comments if there are any other problems you may have encountered with your Google Home and we'll look into fixes.

In the meantime, have you cleaned your Google Home lately? If not, you may not be getting the most out of it. Check out our extensive list of Google Home Quick Tips to learn how to control your smart home like a boss.
