And lo, 'The Simpsons' has begun its 26th season on a bittersweet, if ultimately uplifting note, as a memorable character greeted the grim reaper after many years in the background. Last night's season premiere "Clown in the Dumps" also brought with it the longrunning FOX animation staple's most unusual couch gag yet, as created by artist Don Hertzfeldt, so check both out with the latest from last night's premiere!

Like it or not, 'Family Guy''s Griffins will make their way to Springfield this coming Sunday for landmark crossover premiere "The Simpsons Guy," and no animated universe is safe. Peter will trade chicken-style fisticuffs with Homer, Bart and Stewie will swap pranks, and morbidly disturbing car-washes will be held. See for yourself with seven (!) all-new clips from the 'Family Guy' season 13 crossover premiere "The Simpsons Guy"!
As if the past summer hadn't cemented 'The Simpsons' stranglehold on all reality, the past weekend saw the long-running FOX animated comedy taking over the Hollywood Bowl for a star-studded concert of Springfield's favorite musical numbers. Everyone from Conan O'Brien to Jon Lovitz showed up to belt out famous tunes, and we've compiled every cromulent number in one place just for you!
Turnaround time for 'The Simpsons' has treated fans to the knowledge that season 26 premiere "Clown in the Dumps" would feature the death of a major recurring character for the long-running animation series, a deadly prospect made all the more ominous by the episode's title. Now, as the first photos of the Krusty-centric 'Simpsons' premiere emerge, FOX realllllly wants us to think Bart's favorite clown is the beloved "Clown in the Dumps."
Fans of either 'The Simpsons' or 'Family Guy' have divided over the latter's upcoming "Simpsons Guy," ranging from "I smell another cheap cartoon crossover" to "freakin' sweet," but nothing will stop the inevitable clash of peach and yellow. See for yourself with a brand-new gallery of photos from 'The Simpsons' upcoming 'Family Guy' crossover, along with some retro details of this Halloween's upcoming "Treehouse of Horror" installment!
Last year, the Ohio State University Band gave football fans one hell of a movie tribute, marching along to formations of everything from 'Superman' to 'Jurassic Park,' so what was the one way to top it? TV! See what "the best damn band in the land" came up with for everything from 'Game of Thrones' to 'Dragnet,' with the full TVLand TV tribute!
'The Simpsons' have been all over the internet this past week, perhaps even moreso than usual, as FXX continues on with its 12-day marathon of all 522 episodes of the landmark animated series. If you thought that America's favorite family would take a break however, wait until you see how FXX plans to parse out its library of 'The Simpsons' episodes five nights a week, presumably until the end of time.
Everyone is getting in on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, including Homer Simpson! We've already seen Marvel, 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and 'Game of Thrones' stars heed the call, but now watch your favorite TV dad from Springfield join the ranks.
'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.
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.
