ABC and Fox launched their Sunday lineups this week, so a lot of TV went down. (And that’s not even including Showtime’s finales…and I’m, sadly, woefully behind on both MASTERS OF SEX and RAY DONOVAN.)

Let’s talk a bit about what went down last night… Read more

Harry Shearer will remain with THE SIMPSONS after all.

Though Shearer seemed set to exit in May, Fox has confirmed the entire core voice cast will return for the upcoming two seasons.

Shearer — who voices Ned Flanders, Mr. Burns, Principal Skinner, Reverend Lovejoy, and Smithers, to name a few of his characters — has been a part of the show from the start. (In fact, the two-season renewal means the show will run to at least 625 episodes.)

Are you happy Shearer is staying with the show?

With no X FACTOR or UTOPIA in sight, Fox is sans any huge reality blocks for the start of the upcoming season.

That also means that aside from the Sunday lineup — which is staying untouched — only GOTHAM, EMPIRE, and BONES are remaining in the same spots they occupied for the 2014-2015 season. (And NEW GIRL is off the schedule until January.)

THE SIMPSONS Renewed for Two More Seasons

Comments Off on THE SIMPSONS Renewed for Two More Seasons

The SimpsonsTHE SIMPSONS has been renewed for two seasons, Fox announced. That will make it season 27 and 28 for the long-running animated series. (And 625 episodes!)

“I’ve outlasted Letterman, Jon Stewart and ‘McDreamy,’ because I have something they don’t: a costly 200-donut-a-day addiction,” said Homer Simpson in a statement from Fox.

The comedy has had a big year: in addition to the renewal, FXX aired the “Every. Simpsons. Ever.” marathon; launched SIMPSONS WORLD — which boasts streaming on demand of every SIMPSONS episode, in addition to other fun goodies; aired crossovers with both FAMILY GUY and FUTURAMA; and the show took over the Hollywood Bowl for a SIMPSONS musical concert.

Comments Off on THE SIMPSONS to Air Fan-Made Pixel Opening Credits

simpsons-featured-2014Television fans can be insanely creative when it comes to showing their love for their favorite shows, and three THE SIMPSONS fans from Australia — artists/animators Paul Robertson and Ivan Dixon, and musician Jeremy Dower — are now seeing their project get incorporated into the show.

The three men recreated THE SIMPSONS’ opening sequence using pixel art, and the video went viral. THE SIMPSONS producers reached out to the men, and now those opening credits will be used before this Sunday’s brand new episode.

“This job was already great; now people are doing the work for us,” THE SIMPSONS showrunner Al Jean joked in a statement. “Thanks for 90 brilliant seconds Ivan, Paul and Jeremy.”

Did you miss the video when it went viral and can’t wait until Sunday to check it out? Watch it now…

Comments Off on Marisa’s Top 14 Episodes of 2014

For my top episodes of the year, I did something different this year: I didn’t let myself choose anything from my top shows of 2014. There are certainly shows there that could (and maybe should) have installments listed here, but considering how much television I watch, I wanted to expand the field of shows versus just going over (again) why I loved the top shows.

The following episodes aren’t ranked (they’re listed alphabetically), but I did note which one would have been number one if I had gone that route…

I spoke with THE SIMPSONS star Yeardley Smith (Lisa) about “Simpsorama,” and how her character is handling these visitors…

‘The Simpsons Guy’: Rich Appel and Steve Callaghan Tease the FAMILY GUY-THE SIMPSONS Crossover

simpsons-family-guy-crossover-featured

FAMILY GUY and THE SIMPSONS’ highly-anticipated crossover finally airs tonight, and while fans of the shows may have been waiting for this for years, there was a good reason to delay the Simpsons and Griffins from meeting: “You couldn’t do a crossover like this until FAMILY GUY had become an institution itself,” FAMILY GUY executive producer Rich Appel pointed out to a small group of reporters earlier this week.

And, yes, while “The Simpsons Guy” is a crossover hour, this is, technically, an episode of FAMILY GUY.

“It’s an episode of FAMILY GUY,” FAMILY GUY executive Steve Callaghan explained. “It’s a premiere of FAMILY GUY. And [THE SIMPSONS producers] very kindly, and generously let us invade Springfield.”

In “invading” Springfield, the crossover expanded far beyond the two central families meeting — a whole bunch of Springfield regulars pop up in “The Simpsons Guy.”
