The Simpsons TV Channel? Fox Is Considering The Possibility

One of those beautiful fantasy daydreams that many geeks share may eventually become a reality. The Simpsons is this generation’s Honeymooners. Hell, it’s several generations’ Honeymooners, given that the animated series is in its 23rd season and still going strong. Matt Groening shows no signs of quitting, but one day he will and that’s when Fox will hopefully pounce on the notion of a channel devoted entirely to The Simpsons.

News Corp. Chief Operating Officer Chase Carey said as much earlier this week at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media Communications & Entertainment Conference. The Los Angeles Times reports that Carey revealed Fox is in discussions about how more money can be made from the long-running series in addition to home video releases and TV syndication deals. It wouldn’t happen until the show is finished, of course, but the network is apparently entertaining the possibility of a digital channel.

Home entertainment centers are becoming more and more web-connected with each passing year, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see this idea eventually transform into some sort of subscription-based streaming situation. What say you, fellow Springfield geeks? Yay or nay to the idea of non-stop Simpsons in some form or another? Is this something you’d be willing to pony up a monthly or annual fee for? I sure would.

    Considering the show jumped the shark about a decade ago, I’d say no.

    talk about not ever letting the simpsons die and milking the cash cow to death. think the idea is finaly over kill for  even the simpsons have to end like all things do.

    Why would I pay a monthly fee when I have all the best seasons on dvd already?

  • Mudguy

    As far as I concerned  The Simsons could be canceled altogether. It is the most ridiculous and obnoxious cartoon ever written.

    enough with this stupid idea that the simpsons aren’t good anymore.
    The show evolves and is still very funny, clever and touching as it was 23 years ago.
    Every season has some hit and miss, like every show, but it’s always better than most things on tv (or any media).

    there are plenty of other shows that are worst than the worst episode of the simpsons. I like ”the cleveland show” and ”american dad”  but look me in the eyes and tell me that they are better writen than the simpsons.

    Like it or not ( you already chose not), the simpsons are part of our lives and it’s still a good part.
