In the first-ever one-hour episode of THE SIMPSONS, featuring Emmy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson (EMPIRE), Snoop Dogg, Common and RZA as guest voices, Mr. Burns (Harry Shearer) tries to relive his glory days, and crosses paths with a mysterious music mogul.

THE MICK is a comedy about an unapologetic degenerate (Kaitlin Olson, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") who suddenly finds herself stuck raising her spoiled niece (Sofia Black D'Elia, "The Night Of") and nephews (Thomas Barbusca, "Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life"; newcomer Jack Stanton) in affluent Greenwich, CT. It's pretty much everything she never wanted. Regardless, she's determined to rise to the occasion and transform these little monsters into honest, hard-working, decent members of society - something she knows absolutely nothing about. The series also stars Carla Jimenez ("Last Man Standing") and newcomer Scott MacArthur.
In the next all-new episode of THE MICK, "The Buffer," airing in its regular time period Tuesday, Jan. 10 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), Mickey attempts to teach Sabrina (Sofia Black-D'Elia) a lesson by tricking her. Meanwhile, Chip (Thomas Barbusca) turns to Jimmy (Scott MacArthur) for advice.
