The Simpsons Being Offered for Cable Syndication


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Twentieth Television will be offering off-network syndicated repeats of The Simpsons to cable networks in the future, after the long-running animated comedy sitcom has aired its 25th (and last) season this fall. This will open up the possibility of the show finding new home on networks such as FX or even the Turner-owned TBS, which has recently picked up American Dad and will be airing it alongside Family Guy next season.

Despite the show’s reputation among many old fans and critics as having “jumped the shark” a long time ago, The Simpsons continues to command impressive ratings, not to mention airing the old seasons may convince former fans to watch again. This means the show could fetch a hefty price, with experts suggesting that all 530 episodes of the series could cost as much as $1.5 million per half hour.
