The Simpsons: How Long Before the FOX Series Is Cancelled?

The SimpsonsFOX’s animated phenomenon, The Simpsons, is currently in its 21st season. The ratings aren’t what they were a few years ago but they’re still pretty good when compared to the other animated FOX series.

Still, nothing can last forever. How long will the show go on before the network gets tired of it and cancels The Simpsons?

At the Television Critics Association press tour, FOX Entertainment President Kevin Reilly said, “We have it for two more seasons and then we’ll sit down and see where we are.”

He continued, “The show is extraordinary. We just celebrated twenty years. I’m certainly not gunning for it. It’s still creatively vibrant. The show is up again this season. It’s just mind-blowing the breadth of creativity that’s still coming out of that camp.”

What do you think? Would you like to see The Simpsons keep going or is it time for the show to be over?

    Im getting tired of the simpsons, it needs to end with a series finale with a message from matt groaning telling everyone gigantic thanks for 21 years of good times and support. I used to watch it as a kid but when I reached an adolescent age, I quit on the show.

    More Beavis and Butthead and more south park!!

    The last seasons especially season 22 has been very bad and boring. Doll / weird plot in almost all the episodes.
    Back in the first seasons there could be 2 good stories running side by side in one episode. Now there is usually no good stories in an episode. It is sad to see. It is better to stop it.

    Quite honestly, yes, I would love to see it cancelled. I have been, correction, I was a fan of the show for more years than I care to remember, but for a number of months now I simply haven’t been able to stand the sight of it. I still watch old episodes whenever they come on, they are television gold, but the new episodes just make groan, scowl and cringe; they are painful to watch. I believe ‘The Simpsons’ have seriously lost their way of late, jokes seem forced, there is too much focus on trying to bring in events that have happened in the real world and too much time is spent on things that have nothing to do with the story, for example the couch gags (once simplistically brilliant, now over thought and tedious) and Itchy and Scratchy cartoons (the point was that they WEREN’T funny but the characters thought they were). Really, I have no idea what the creators are doing right now, but I think that they should probably watch an old episode and then a new one back-to-back, maybe then they’ll wake up.
