'The Simpsons' marathon continues for its sixth straight day on FXX today amidst a growing chorus of complaints about the network’s decision to alter the format of every episode from the show’s first nineteen seasons. As detailed in Max O’Connell’s recent article on Indiewire, FXX has cropped and stretched pre-HD 'Simpsons' installments from their original 4:3 aspect ratio (the height and width of our old standard-definition TVs) to 16:9 (the dimensions of our new HD sets), apparently in order to make sure that no one suffers through old television episodes with black bars on the sides of the image.

'The Simpsons' has been on for so long that no corner of this fictional city hasn't been explored, and no casual reference hasn't been transformed into a full-fledged character or storyline. Well, at least we thought so! It looks like the 26th season of the long-running program managed to find one sliver of Springfield that's been left unexplored and Fox enlisted Will Forte to help explore it.

Jimmy Fallon's love for turning basic drinking games into outsized (often, quite literally) versions of themselves is well documented, but the 'Tonight Show' host just might have reached the apex of his drinking game adoration when he challenged Pitbull (Mr. Worldwide, please) to a round of Giant Duff Beer Pong. Wait, why Duff? Because Fallon and his show have been camped out at Universal Studios in Orlando all week, and yes, this game is all about Duff Beer, the favorite fictional beer of 'The Simpsons.'
