What’s This TV Show About?
An animated sitcom airing on the FOX television network, The Simpsons features the vocal talents of Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Harry Shearer, and Hank Azaria. The comedy centers on the dysfunctional Simpson family, as well as their neighbors, friends, and life in the fictional town of Springfield.
A safety inspector at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, the buffoonish Homer (Castellaneta) is married to Marge (Kavner), a sweet, if typical housewife. Together, they have three children. At ten years of age, son Bart (Cartwright) is a consummate troublemaker. Their precocious middle child, eight-year-old Lisa (Yeardly Smith), is charismatic, if a bit geeky. Baby Maggie may not be verbal, but she expresses herself both with her wide eyes and the help of her trusty pacifier. The family dog, Santa’s Little Helper, and cat, Snowball II, round out the household.
Season 29 Ratings
In its 29th season, The Simpsons is averaging a 1.42 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.45 million viewers. Compared to season 28, that’s down by 20% and down by 17%, respectively. Find out how The Simpsons stacks up against the other FOX TV shows.
The Simpsons continues to be my nemesis, but I’m not sure I’d eat it, unless I had a Geiger counter handy. Since it is already renewed through season 30, there’s no worry it will be cancelled anytime too soon. I think it’s more likely that the creative team will decide to end it, than that the network will cancel it. Still, things can change, so I will keep an eye on the Nielsen ratings and the entertainment press and update this page with any breaking developments.
