'The Simpsons' in danger of being cancelled



The Associated Press

Date: Tuesday Oct. 4, 2011 3:26 PM ET

In its 23rd year on TV, "The Simpsons" could be on the endangered species list.

The show's producer said Tuesday that the show can't continue under its current financial model.

That follows a report that big pay cuts are being sought for the actors who provide voices for Homer, Marge and Bart Simpson and the other characters.

Chris Alexander is a spokesman for 20th Century Fox Television. Alexander says the producer hopes for an agreement that allows the show to continue.

The Daily Beast reported that producers are demanding a 45 percent pay cut from the six voice actors.

They debuted when I was in junior high . . . they've had a long life.

And wow, I feel old. Razz

I'm glad that it's ending before it finally runs out of ideas; I don't mean good ideas or original ideas, I mean ideas altogether, because at the rate it's going it will run out of bad and unoriginal ideas too. Twisted Evil

Hopefully, however, they can spend all their time and resources on making a wonderful series finale rather than yet another season.

This show has gone on way too long. It needs to end now. Cancel Family Guy and The Cleveland Show while you're at it, FOX. Family Guy is no longer funny now and the latter just plain sucks.

Indeed; it's always been the same random, plotless, unoriginal garbage. The people who say "Family Guy isn't funny anymore" have simply grown up.

A couple of times they managed to tap into something interesting. It's dismissive to say they were never funny. (But I admit, not by much.)

Even Adam Sandler has been funny a few times, and if you've seen Eight Crazy Nights or Click (which were so bad on their own, my brain still hasn't even been able to process the existence of Chuck & Larry), you know how hard it is for me to admit that.

Well, I meant in general. Of course they might have had a few funny gags, but on the whole...

I read they got a reprieve of two more seasons. I lost track now, would that take them up to 25 seasons? What season are they in now?

I hate to say this given how great the show was in it's heyday, but it's about time. It's become a televisual zombie.
