I can see next week's bumping up a bit. I don't see it going down at all due to the sheer scale of the Gaga fandom. A lot of her fans will be watching. Perhaps it might even be their first episode. I don't want to judge next week's before I see it, but if Gaga fans tune in, it's their first ever episode and it is shit then that is what they're going to think of The Simpsons forever. I always feel like that though, when I'm trying to convince someone to watch a show but they just watch one of the lesser episodes and don't appreciate it, always annoys me.
The audience is terrible. But The cleveland show was watch by only 2,79 millions of viewer. I hope that Gaga appearance in next week episode will make that more viewer will open there TV to each The Simpsons. Personally I don't think that the audience will be awesome because the 500th who had a lots of promotion was only watch by 5,8 millions of viewer.

Oh god the terrible episode is approaching...
While yesterdays Simpsons episode had 4.00 million viewers; yesterdays episode of American Dad had 4.12 million viewers.
The 5 lowest watched episodes ever according to simpsonschannel.com are all from the 23rd season
Ned 'N Edna's Blend - 4.00 mil.
The Daughter Also Rises - 4.33 mil.
The Spy Who Learned Me - 4.74 mil.
Beware My Cheating Bart - 4.86 mil.
How I Wet Your Mother - 4.96 mil.
And I thought "The Daughter Also Rises" was low because of the Grammy awards and its tribute to Whitney Houston.

Does having it being recorded on DVR count as being viewed? I don't watch the episode live but it records on my DVR. If it doesn't count that might be a reason why ratings are low, either that or people watch it on Hulu or other sites.
Fox execs must be now kicking themselves for renewing the show for 2 additional seasons.
Harry Shearer tried to negotiate a partial pay-option with the voice actors making some money from the merchandising profits and Fox's reps essentially told him to piss off.
they're only 'turning away' from the newest episodes; the past dvd seasons, comic books, video games, books, etc. still sell well
true, but they still sell well enough. it's not like solid ratings are the only thing that has been making them stay on the air for so long. if ratings were the only factor they'd probably have been canceled at least 5-6 years ago, if not more.
I've at times wondered if Jean and crew, if they got desperate enough, might use the movie sequel trump card to get the show renewed, if they even could - I honestly don't know how that works - but last time I checked the voice actors were still signed for two more films and the last one made over $500 million.
It comes down to what Troy McClure said though really all those years ago...
I get that's what he said, but I'm talking full desperation mode here. Apparently it is the highest grossing animated film based off a tv adaptation. Not surprising, but something I didn't know. Still, $500 million as opposed to $75 million budget? Might look pretty tempting for the execs, not that the sequel would do that well most likely....just throwing it out there.
I originally wanted the three movies to be a trilogy but then I figured that would not work because no one wants to see a Simpsons Movie where the joke is presented at the end of the movie and ends before it is revealed.
I still want my Treehouse of Horror movie, not that that'll happen.
Let's hope that if they decide to do the sequel, they won't let Tim Long, Carolyne Omine and other mediocre writers anywhere near the writing room.
I hope that John Swatzelder will be in the writter if they do another movie. He is my favourite writter in the show history.
