    If you ask me, the only Bob's Burgers couch gag that should even be considered is if somebody removes Louise's bunny ears and reveals a Lisa hairdo

    Apu would probably consider it an insult that he wound up in heaven instead of reincarnated into a tapeworm or something.
    But, hey, at least he's making his first appearance of the season. So congrats on existing?

    I think that's the point since I see at least four religions in that screenshot

    I just noticed something strange on the Fox schedule press releases: this week's, and next week's, episodes are scheduled to run from 8:00 to 8:28. Also, Family Guy runs from 9:00 to 9:27 both nights.

    Fox was also airing some sort of "countdown clock" during its commercials on Sunday. Since it did not do it on Monday (at least, not during 9-1-1), I am assuming it has something to do with the shorter breaks, similar to how NBC always announces that the first commercial break during Manifest is only 60 seconds.

    However, there was a rather lengthy break between the end of Bob's Burgers and the start of Family Guy.

    Now watch Fox have a last-minute pre-emption this year (like last year's O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession), so THOH XXX ends up being episode 665.

    I’d like to see him become a writer if it means he takes Joel Cohen’s place.

    FutonCritic synopsis for From Russia Without Love (airing on November 11th)...

    - "THE SIMPSONS" - (8:00-8:28 PM ET/PT) CC-AD-HDTV 720p-Dolby Digital 5.1

    MOE FALLS FOR A MAIL-ORDER BRIDE ON AN ALL-NEW "THE SIMPSONS" SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11, ON FOX

    On a mission to play hardcore pranks, Bart, Nelson and Milhouse get Moe a mail-order bride on the Dark Web in the all-new "From Russia Without Love" episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, Nov. 11 (8:00-8:28 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (SI-2920) (TV-PG L, V)

    Voice Cast: Dan Castellaneta as Homer Simpson; Julie Kavner as Marge Simpson; Nancy Cartwright as Bart Simpson and Nelson; Yeardley Smith as Lisa Simpson; Hank Azaria as Moe; Harry Shearer as Skinner; Tress MacNeille as Dolph; Pamela Hayden as Milhouse; Harry Shearer as Flanders; Harry Shearer as Mr. Burns; Harry Shearer as Smithers; Harry Shearer as Lenny; Harry Shearer as Dr. Hibbert; Harry Shearer as Reverend Lovejoy; Harry Shearer as Kent Brockman; Harry Shearer as Otto; Harry Shearer as Jasper; Harry Shearer as Rainier Wolfcastle
    Michael Ferris is writing this ep. If the director rotation holds, Matthew Nastuk will be directing.
    Al Jean did NOT tweet out this episode's live read (the script instead leaked out via Fox's Instagram as per this post) so this is likely a Selman ep.

    Why is Shearer credited for just about every character he plays in the show in this particular synopsis?

    Seeing how he's been getting credited consistently for both Skinner and Flanders (as you noted earlier) for some reason, I thought I'd be funny and credit him individually for everything else.

    Notice one character that didn't get credited: the bride. I wonder who - or what - shows up.

    Is ordering a Russian mail bride from the Internet a common trope?
    It was done in an early American Dad! episode, too.

    Uh oh... sentient plant-life. Wonder what the over-under is for this segment on jokes revolving around vegetarian Lisa feeling conflicted.
    I'm going to be conservative and set the bar at 1 1/2 jokes. Who wants to take the over?

    It's likely one of Selman's efforts. Season 28 had five Selman episodes (counting Great Phatsby as two entries). And with Heartbreak Hotel in the can, we've had three Selman efforts as of season 29. If this holds, then we still have two of them among the remaining holdover entries.

    Come to think of it, I don't believe Al tweeted about Baby You Can't Drive My Car either.
    (Although he did tweet out about the Heartbreak Hotel live read that Selman co-wrote to further convolute this logic.)

    It's better to pay attention to Selman's own feed. He usually starts promoting his episodes when they're fairly close to their air date.

    Case in point, there were no indications that Halloween of Horror or the LEGO episode were Selman entries until they were very close to air. Al Jean had already discussed their existence long before that (especially in the LEGO case, which took Nastuk and the animators well over a year to finish).
