Most TV executives do think like a bratty, low-brow 9 year old, after all.

Bart is 10, you jackass.

MrBuddy
Hasn't Bart been 10 for the past 21 years, meaning he should be 31 by now? Even if every Simpsons episode equals one day in Springfield wouldn't he at least by 11 and close to 12?

No, cause see it's a cartoon.

So in retrospect, we really shouldn't be surprised.

What episode is that from?
RomancingTrain
This isn't from an episode, it was an ad.

Spit Spingola
The Simpsons were on opposite the Cosby Show at the time and hurt Cosby's ratings big time.

Xenocide
Fox made much sport out of taking digs at Cosby, largely because the rise of The Simpsons sounded the death knell for Cosby-styled flavorless sitcom wholesomeness.

I remember that on the day of the Cosby finale, there was a print ad in my newspaper advertising an episode of The Simpsons that would run against it. It featured Lisa saying "We understand if you'd rather watch the last episode of Cosby...it's just that we'll never forgive you for it."

Perhaps the latter seasons were a running joke spawned from this ad.

Yes.

I remember back when this show was the quality by which other shows were judged. I am old.

I feel that this show failed to get biz-zay consistently and thoroughly. If they had been proactive, we'd be talking about a totally outrageous paradigm right now.

Coming across a pre-Season 10 clip I've never seen before is like finding old but still delicious candy hidden in the back of the cupboard!

Also, yes. Eerily prescient.

The Simpsons could predict their own downfall but not 9/11... coincidence?

They did...coincidence?

Ahh I miss the Simpsons being likable and watchable. I watched one about a week ago from Season 6 or 8 or something and it was like an old friend I hadn't seen for years had shown up and brought me presents that reminded me of how much I missed them.

Know how you feel, pal, know how you feel.
