If FXX's ongoing 12-day marathon of all 522 'The Simpsons' episodes reminds us of anything, it's that the series' enduring popularity makes it impossible to say when FOX might finally call it quits on America's favorite family. Whether or not "You'll Never Stop the Simpsons" however, showrunner Al Jean has a very specific (and familiar!) image picked out for the distant future's series finale.
Last week saw Dave Letterman shaking up the late-night landscape with the announcement of his imminent retirement, which as since led to all manner of speculation on a replacement, but the impact has already gone further down the pop culture rabbit hole. Watch 'The Simpsons' pay tribute to the retiring 'Late Show' leader with last night's couch gag from "Luca$"!
The recent buzz of toy news brought confirmation that 'The Simpsons' would be going LEGO for an upcoming installment, though few details of the topical concept episode were known. Now, we've learned exactly when "Brick Like Me" will premiere, along with the bizarre twist that leads to Homer finding both himself and the rest of Springfield made entirely of LEGO!
It's hard to say if 'Glee' would have followed the same trajectory toward a season 6 series finale if not for lead actor Cory Monteith's untimely death, though series creator Ryan Murphy always had in mind how the series would have ended between Monteith and co-lead Lea Michele. Want to know what 'Glee''s very last shot would have been?
While 'The Simpsons' made waves earlier this year in promising to kill off one of its ancillary characters, 'Family Guy' had promised even more this past summer in threatening to kill off one of its leads. The reaper finally came to pass in last night's time-traveling "Life of Brian," but who from the Griffin family ultimately got the axe?
We've heard quite a bit about 'The Simpsons'' twenty-fifth season, from its rich vein of celebrity guest stars, to the 'Homeland' parody that gripped this past Sunday's premiere, but is the spectre of death once again lurking about Springfield? Like Maude Flanders before, it seems one long-running 'Simpsons' character has been targeted for a permanent exit for the aging animation staple.
The other day we found out Tina Fey would return to TV in spirit by producing a new NBC sitcom about a woman returning to her roots, but it would seem FOX has done the '30 Rock' creator and star one better. The network has given another collegiate comedy under Fey's producing watch a straight-to-series order, but will the former 'SNL' writer have any role on the show itself?
'Glee' has officially resumed production on its fifth and potentially penultimate season, though only three episodes will shoot before a brief hiatus to retool following series star Cory Monteith's death. The first look at the new season has arrived from Lea Michele herself, while Adam Lambert's upcoming arc has finally been revealed as well.
Earlier today we heard from FOX chairman Kevin Reilly how 'Glee' would handle the death of actor Cory Monteith in its upcoming fifth season, but it seems the real bombshell didn't drop until after Reilly's TCA press tour presentation. We've known that 'Glee' had already been renewed for seasons 5 and 6, but will FOX definitively end the series in 2015?
A few weeks ago we heard the inspired news that Adult Swim stop-motion animation gurus of 'Robot Chicken' had begun crafting a 'Simpsons' couch gag to air later in the season, and the finished product might just be our favorite couch gag of the year. Donut transformations, exploding Flanders and stop-motion murder await in the 'Simpsons' 'Robot Chicken' couch gag inside!
