The Simpsons Goes Downton Abbey With Simpton Abbey Gag
Downton Abbey may be between seasons right now, but out of sight definitely doesn't mean out of mind. Earlier today we shared Sean Combs' Funny or Die video, and this Sunday night, the series will be acknowledged in the double-episode season finale of The Simpsons. First, we have this video, which Fox shared today and gives us a look at Downton Abbey's opening credits, Simpsons-style. Simpton Abbey! Looks like Homer had some trouble with that old-fashioned razor.
SNL's Kristen Wiig To Appear In A Season 25 Episode Of The Simpsons
The Simpsons has always been known for pretty big guest stars and next season Fox’s animated comedy plans to continue the tradition by using SNL veteran Kristen Wiig’s voice during a special episode. Wiig has signed on for a fall of 2013 episode of The Simpsons called “Homerland.”

Seth MacFarlane To Guest-Star In The Simpsons' Season 24 Finale
When we learned that Seth MacFarlane was going to be lending his vocal talents to The Simpsons with a guest spot on the show, word was that his voice appearance wouldn't take place until the Season 25 premiere next fall, however it's looking like we'll be hearing the Family Guy creator and voice actor's voice on The Simpsons much sooner than that. Fox announced today that MacFarlane will guest-voice in the two-part season finale.
Under The Dome TV Adaptation Will Give A Nod To The Simpsons
Since the announcement that Stephen King's novel Under the Dome was being adapted for a TV series, we've seen at last a few comments from readers about how the concept of the story - which has a small New England town being covered by a huge, invisible dome - sounds a lot like the plot of The Simpsons Movie. While The Simpsons arrived on the big screen in 2007 and King's book was published in 2009, it would appear that King was using a premise that had already been done, however King has said that he started writing Under the Dome in the 1976.
The Simpsons Cooks Up A Special Breaking Bad Inspired Opening Scene
As you can see, The Simpsons has cooked up a special treat for Breaking Bad fans this week, replacing the usual couch gag with a special open for the episode. It looks like Marge has gotten herself into the "cupcake" business - and by "cupcake" we mean… cupcakes - and she's making a serious profit off it.
Stan Lee Will Guest Star On The Simpsons In Season 25
Stan Lee is no stranger to Fox’s long-running animated comedy, The Simpsons. The comic book legend appeared in a Season 13 episode of the comedy and will now be popping up in an episode next season, which is a little bit of a bigger deal, since the next batch of episodes will mark the show’s 25th season on air.
Watch Bill Plympton's Film Noir Simpsons Couch Gag Before Sunday's Episode
Oscar-nominated animator Bill Plympton is, once again, lending his talent to an episode of The Simpsons for another couch gag. You may recall the animator's contribution to the long-running animated comedy last year, when Homer and the Couch became two star-crossed lovers. The latest one, which debuts this weekend - but you can watch here, now - takes a more violent approach to introducing the episode.
The Simpsons Valentine's Episode Clips Spoof Woody Allen And British Rom-Coms
Love is in the air in Springfield this Sunday night. The Simpsons will acknowledge Valentine's Day with "Love is a Many Splintered Thing," an episode that features guest voices by Zooey Deschanel, Benedict Cumberbatch, Max Weinberg and Robert A Caro. Check out the clips ahead to see how movie factor into the story.
The Newsroom's Aaron Sorkin Set For A Simpsons Guest Spot
The dialog on Fox's The Simpsons may get a little bit sharper next season, at least for part of an episode. Aaron Sorkin tends to have that effect when he's around. The West Wing creator's current involvement in television these days is HBO's The Newsroom, however he'll be lending his voice to an episode of The Simpsons next season.
Family Guy, Bob's Burgers And The Cleveland Show Get Into The Holiday Spirit This Sunday
Fox's Animation Domination Sunday night line-up will be getting into the holiday spirit this weekend. Fox released a teaser for the animated comedy block and it appears that all of The Simpsons will be airing holiday installments on Sunday night.
The Simpsons: The Fifteenth Season [DVD]
These 22 episodes from 2003-2004 fall smack dab into the middle of a period of Simpsons hatred. It was the third year into Al Jean’s showrunning ascent from the fan-scathed death pit that was Mike Scully’s tenure. Is it a great season? No, but it probably beats any other show’s fifteenth season, and that’s how I choose to see my half-full glass.
Seth MacFarlane Is Headed To Springfield For A Simpsons Guest Spot
Seth MacFarlane knows a little something about voice-acting, and come to think of it, he knows a lot of something about Fox animated comedies, and his voice-acting talent isn't exclusive to his own shows. The Family Guy creator/voice actor is set to lend his voice to one of the few Fox Sunday night animated comedies that isn't his - The Simpsons.
The Simpsons Wins The Night In Ratings But Revenge Hits Season Low
Ratings were all across the board last night, with some of the usual favorites faltering a bit and other shows crushing far more than usual. Sunday night is always a good night for TV, and if you were busy watching sports, following is a list of what everyone else was (or wasn’t) watching.
The Simpsons Producing Episode Judd Apatow Wrote In 1989
In a move that is part genius marketing effort and part declaration that the series, truly and finally, has run out of ideas, The Simpsons are filming a story that was written and submitted by famous director, writer, and producer Judd Apatow way back in 1989.
