Animation Domination Finales: Bob's Burgers Kills And American Dad Says Goodbye image
Though we don’t often break down the shows on a weekly basis, we thought it’d be good to pay our respects, since Animation Domination will be no more by next fall. (For the most part, anyway.)

Homer Simpson Goes LEGO For 550th Episode Of The Simpsons image
Two of my favorite things are coming together next month for a once in a lifetime event. (If every basic cable limited series can be called an “event,” so can this.) The May 4 episode of The Simpsons is the long-running series’ 550th episode, which they’re celebrating with their most conceptually daring half-hour yet: a LEGO episode titled “Brick Like Me.”

The Simpsons Amusingly Sends Up Mad Men's Non Sequitur 'Next Week' Promos	 image
I’m a die-hard Simpsons fan who shamelessly threw away my apologist hat long ago, and while the rise in episode quality over the last few years is arguable, there’s no denying Matt Groening’s crew has finally learned how to stay abreast of the zeitgeist. (Think the recent Letterman tribute and the constantly changing opening credits and guest-animated couch gags.)

Good News Everybody, Futurama Is 15! image
Forget fictional anniversaries, Futurama turns fifteen today, so let’s all wish Matt Groening’s animated series a happy birthday! Well, as happy as an off-air birthday can be. But good news everybody, whether or not they find another network, the Planet Express crew will be back at least once more thanks to the cross-over with The Simpsons. And hey, at least it never overstayed its welcome.

The Good Wife, Revenge Are Up In Ratings Because Sunday Was Made For Drama image
If you’re a Sunday night drama on ABC or CBS, you’re probably having the best day ever. Because the numbers are in and dramas are all on the upswing, gobbling viewers away (even when the footballers are at play). Sorry, comedy — looks like Sunday just ain’t your day. The last night of the weekend has become a hotbed for dramatic activities and with the revelations from this weekend’s ratings it’s safe to assume that comedy should just look to broadcast itself elsewhere.

The Simpsons Pays Tribute To Marcia Wallace With Heartbreaking Chalkboard Gag image
In the 25 years The Simpsons has been on the air, nobody has aged or graduated the fourth grade, and no matter what kind of chaos goes down in a given episode, things are restored to normal so that the family can sit down on their couch again int he beginning of the next episode. So when a voice actor for the show dies, as the voice of Mrs. Krabappel Marcia Wallace did on October 25, it is jarring. But The Simpsons writers deal with it beautifully anyway

See How Much It Costs To Advertise On The Big Bang Theory And Other Shows image
Anyone who has been paying attention to The Big Bang Theory over the past several years should know that show crushes in the ratings. The higher the rating for a series the better its ad revenue typically is, and The Big Bang Theory is topping the list of programs where money raked in from advertisements is concerned.

Watch This Video Point Out All Of The Simpsons' Treehouse Of Horror References image
The Simpsons’ famed “Treehouse of Horror” episode was a little higher profile than usual this year, thanks to prolific director Guillermo del Toro signing on to direct the opener for the 2013 special episode. The opening sequence was filled with references to past “Treehouse of Horror” gags, as well as a slew of names and movies involved with horror since the dawn of the film. Luckily, this video counts all of those references for us.

Watch Guillermo del Toro's Elaborate Horror-Themed Opening Sequence For The Simpsons image
Talking to Entertainment Weekly, del Toro revealed that the show's producers initially offered him a voice role or to dream up one of the show's famous couch gags, but he wanted to take it much further. "“The Simpsons titles are so iconic and yet they’ve never been riffed in this vein,” he says. “I really wanted to land the connections between the [show’s] set pieces and the titles and some of the most iconic horror movies, and intersperse them with some of my stuff in there for pure joy."
