The "Trapped in the Closet" episode of "South Park" will be re-aired on July 19, 2006 after being removed from the original repeat schedule in May 2006 by cabler Comedy Central. The episode pokes fun at Scientology and actor Tom Cruise and has been nominated for an Emmy. The new airdate is expected to repair a rift between series producers Trey Parker and Matt Stone. This is not the first time that Parker and Stone have had altercations with Comedy Central.
