Tonight's episode is going to be wild. I'm really excited to see what they do with these election results.

Do you think they fully produced 2 different episodes just in case?

I was kind of wondering that too. They had an election episode back when it was Obama vs McCain but they only really would have needed to change the very end when it shows the winner because the rest of the story wasn't reliant on who won.
Basically, this season they've made Mr. Garrison into Trump and show him being super offensive because he's actually trying to lose, but it just makes people support him more. It seemed like they were working the story toward him losing the election after all these conspiracy theories are solved, but I'm not sure where they'll take it now.

Ah, that would make sense if they just changed the last 5 minutes of an episode vs having it addressed right away

South Park was forced to re-write tonight’s episode after Trump’s win

That makes sense that they re-wrote the entire episode since it started with Douche/Trump winning. I haven't watched this show much before, but it did make the election season a bit more entertaining.

It had some funny parts but definitely didn't feel as smooth/fluid as normal. You could tell it had to be pieced together after a rewrite.

I'm happy about this. I wondered how much more they were going to do with the "Mr. Garrison as Trump" story because it kinda got old and I don't think they planned on it to happen in the first place.
