    I think this announcement was made about 10 years after anyone cared.

    I think in the last 10 years I might have seen one entire episode. The most I have watched was probably the movie.

    Re: The Simpsons: Springfield, Oregon

    recent episodes are better then most people give them credit for. I am a die hard, and they certainly dont match season 8 level, but its still good comedy

    They seem to be behind curve....I was a little perplexed that they released their movie long after their peak of popularity.....My only guess is that the movie was used to revive a quickly aging brand....

    Re: The Simpsons: Springfield, Oregon

    "The Simpsons" is "the Simpsons." It's an institution. Yeah, it's not as good as it used to be, but they've been around for 25 years. It still draws respectable numbers, and they're winding down toward the end of their run. I still DVR new episodes along with a limited number of reruns. Current episodes are usually good for a laugh or two, and are still better than about 75% of the other stuff on TV. It's a step down, because in their heyday, they were better than just about anything else.

    Yet still better than 90% of what's on TV now.

    While I agree the Simpsons have gone stale, anything they put out now is worlds better than any episode of Family Guy.

    I'm with you there. Family Guy prior to cancellation, the first season they were back, and the Blue Harvest episodes are funny. Other than that? Not so much.

    And it's not that I'm a Seth McFarlane hater. I'm not. I think American Dad is flat out hilarious, and at this moment, is the best of the Fox animated shows. The Cleveland show can eat a **** for all I care.
