    Simpsons renewed for seasons 31 and 32

    https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/the...ox-1203130108/

    "“The Simpsons” has been picked up for a 31st and 32nd season at Fox, the network announced Wednesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

    News of the renewal comes just two weeks after Variety reported that the show was nearing a new deal for a two-season pick up.

    At the conclusion of Season 32, the iconic animated sitcom will have produced 713 episodes total. “The Simpsons” is the longest-running primetime scripted show in television history, having surpassed “Gunsmoke” during its 29th season."

    The end begins...

    So what will the production codes be for season 32? Season 31 will be "ZABF", exhausting the current production code format.

    Whenever they end, I just hope it's when they want to, not because an important voice actor died.

    Here's what Homer thinks of this news...


    But seriously, I heard that Disney and FOX want to see how profitable the new episodes are. They've finally been aware FOX has been losing money over the new episodes and their poor ratings, as if it were a stream of constant box-office bombs, and the fact that Disney has bought 20th Century Fox doesn't help much (as they are a separate entity from FOX Broadcasting.) If the low ratings and profits continue, Disney and FOX will pull the plug.

    Because many people still enjoy the show, because the rating is favorable, because it generates profits and because there is still a lot to do with the series. This is an excellent news.
    SEASON 30 RANKINGS: Bart's Not Dead: 3/5 / Heartbreak Hotel: 2/5 / My Way or the Highway to Heaven: 3/5 / Treehouse of Horror XXIX: 2/5 / Baby You Can't Drive My Car: 4/5 / From Russia Without Love: 4/5 / Werking Mom: 4/5 / Krusty the Clown: 4/5 / Daddicus Finch: 5/5 / Tis the Thirtieth Season: 2/5 / Mad About the Toy: 3/5 / The Girl on the Bus: 3/5 / I'm Dancing as Fat as I Can: 4/5 / The Clown Stays in the Picture: 2/5 / 101 Mitigations: 4/5 / I Want You (She's So Heavy): 1/5 / E My Sports 4/5 / Bart vs. Itchy & Scratchy: 5/5 / Girl's in the Band: 4/5 / I'm Just a Girl Who Can't Say D'oh: 2/5 / D'oh Canada: 2/5

    Ah, but since Disney bought the 20th Century Fox properties, FOX has become aware of how in recent years, the show has been getting really lousy ratings and they are losing money over the new episodes. These days, the Simpsons only brings in money through merchandising and the reruns on FXX (seriously, the older episode reruns on cable pull in higher ratings than the new episodes do, and for good reason!) So FOX and Disney decided to renew the show for two more seasons to see how they perform. If they do as poorly as the previous episodes and seasons do, then they will consider pulling the plug. Seriously, even SpongeBob SquarePants is massively more popular than the Simpsons these days AND I heard the show has gotten good again, so that won't help the Simpsons much...

    But I've heard from here that the Simpsons was ending? Would've been nice if the show ended on a round number, but I won't say no to more episodes. I just hope they pick up the quality.. something I ask like every time this show gets renewed.
    Episodes rated best and worst from each season:
    1: Krusty Gets Busted/Homer's Night Out 2: The Way We Was/Bart's Dog Gets an F 3: Colonel Homer/Dog of Death 4: Marge vs. The Monorail/So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show 5: Cape Feare/Bart Gets An Elephant 6: Treehouse of Horror V/Another Simpsons Clip Show 7: Mother Simpson/Homerpalooza 8: You Only Move Twice/The Canine Mutiny 9: Lisa's Sax/The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons 10: Lisa Gets an A/Sunday Cruddy Sunday 11: Behind The Laughter/Beyond Blunderdome 12: Trilogy of Error/The Computer Wore Menace Shoes 13: I Am Furious Yellow/Homer the Moe 14: The Dad Who Knew Too Little/Large Marge 15: The Way We Weren't/Diatribe of a Mad Housewife 16: Thank God Its Doomsday/Mommie Beerest 17: Marge's Son Poisoning/Bonfire of the Manatees 18: Marge Gamer/Revenge is Best Served Three Times 19: Treehouse of Horror XVIII/That 90's Show 20: Gone Maggie Gone/Coming To Homerica 21: O Brother, Where Bart thou?/The Devil Wears Nada 22: Homer Scissorhands/The Fool Monty 23: Holidays of Future Passed/Moe Goes From Rags To Riches 24: Adventures In Baby-Getting/Whiskey Business 25: Brick Like Me/White Christmas Blues 26: Bart's New Friend/The Musk Who Fell to Earth 27: Halloween of Horror/Every Man's Dream 28: There Will Be Buds/Moho House 29: Gone Boy/Throw Grampa from the Dane

    Its saving grace was the consistently good ratings from when it enjoyed the NFL lead-in. Thank God for that.

    I would like to know this as well as what we are to call the generation following Gen Z.

    So, now that it's official, what are the odds Treehouse of Horror XXX will be episode #666? That kind of opportunity doesn't come around every day.
    A little less Generic than before.

    Yep, because the football games running overtime would screw up DVRs, and so people would have no choice but to watch it live. Because FOX believes DVR schedule recordings getting screwed up or cancelled is GOOD.

    I can not discuss anything related to the popularity that the show generates in the United States because I do not live there and I do not know the situation. But, in terms of ratings, The Simpsons is now the fifth most watched show of the season 2018/19 with an average of 1.6, being exceeded only by The Big Bang Theory, This is Us, Young Sheldon, Grey's Anatomy, and winning by a wide difference to any animated show. Currently, it is the most watched program on FOX.

    As for earnings, a recent note in Variety explains that, while The Simpsons are the ones that demand more money to make their episodes, they are also the ones with the highest profits, being the most profitable show for FOX Broadcasting Company, which will take care of the next two seasons in question.

    I'm not at all surprised about the two season renewal but rather think it was a rather natural development. Not only is the show still pulling in a lot of good, high ratings but now that Disney is aquiring Fox they want to let the show keep going until the viewership drops drastically and it's no longer as profitable (if they hadn't gotten Fox I wonder if this double season renewal would've been as certain, but it's definitely a big possibility as the show is still big despite the common negativity towards the modern seasons).
