FOX RENEWS "THE SIMPSONS" FOR UNPRECEDENTED 31ST AND 32ND SEASONS

Making history yet again, THE SIMPSONS has been renewed for its 31st and 32nd seasons on FOX, by which time, the series will have produced 713 episodes.

"Woo hoo! 32 Seasons! Watch your back 'Meet the Press,'" said Homer Simpson.

The longest-running primetime scripted show in television history, THE SIMPSONS exploded into a cultural phenomenon in 1990 and has remained one of the most groundbreaking and innovative entertainment franchises, recognizable throughout the world. Currently airing its historic 30th season, THE SIMPSONS has won 33 Emmy Awards, 34 Annie Awards, a 2016 People's Choice Award and a 2016 Environmental Media Award. It was the first animated series to win a Peabody Award and was nominated for an Academy Award in 2012 for the theatrical short "The Longest Daycare." "The Simpsons Movie" was a hit feature film, the mega-attraction "The Simpsons Ride" at Universal Studios has received historic expansion updates with the addition of "Springfield" and the show was honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2000. It has been named the "Best Show of the 20th Century" by Time magazine and called the "Best TV Show Ever" by Vulture in 2016.

On the next all-new episode, "I'm Dancing as Fat as I Can" airing this Sunday, Feb. 10 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), Homer (Dan Castellaneta) angers Marge (Julie Kavner) by binging their favorite show without her, and has to pick up a new skill in order to make amends. Meanwhile, Bart (Nancy Cartwright) prepares to compete in "Krusty's Holiday Trample," and Netflix's Ted Sarandos makes a guest-voice appearance as himself. Other guest voices featured throughout the remainder of Season 30 include Awkwafina, Judy Blume, Ken Burns, Nicole Byer, Guillermo del Toro, Will Forte, Ken Jeong, John Lithgow, Dave Matthews and J.K. Simmons.

This season, THE SIMPSONS is averaging a 1.9/7 among Adults 18-49 and 4.8 Million Total Viewers. Through 1/20/19, THE SIMPSONS has a multi-platform average audience of 7.5 million Total Viewers, an +82% gain from its Live + Same Day delivery (7.5 Mil vs. 4.2 Mil). In its 30th season, the series ranks as one of the Top 5 comedies among Adults 18-49(tie) and the No. 2 comedy among Adults 18-34(tie). Among broadcast series, THE SIMPSONS ranks among the season's Top 5 among Men 18-49(tie), Top 20 among Adults 18-34 and as the No. 2 broadcast series overall among Men 18-34(tie). Additionally, the "The Girl on the Bus" episode (aired 1/13/19) had a 3.5 L7 rating among Adults 18-49, making it the highest-rated episode of any scripted series in that demographic on FOX this year.
