A still-popular and still-running television show which used to be absolutely hilarious but is now just another plotless, clichéd and failed attempt at humor. Ever since a new wave of incompetent writers entered the scene, The Simpsons have declined significantly in quality, often trading the signature intelligent humour for attempts at emulating short attention-span shows such as Family Guy, which results in shocking tastelessness and disgust from ex-fans.
The Simspons has become a rather controversial topic due to its deteriorating quality. Back when Matt Groening was the writer, The Simpsons was a satirical comedy of smalltown USA life with actual themes and witty storylines. New episodes frequently revolve around celebrity appearances, which only emphasizes the sad lack of ideas, morals and plots. Homer is now portrayed as a complete idiot and the plots are ridiculous and far-fetched in a stupid way. The most recent seasons have no memorable quotes to speak of and are full of improbable plot spinners. If The Simpsons had any decency, they would have stopped the show long ago rather than tarnish their own name.
classic quote from old episode of "The Simpsons":
"The fingers you have used to dial are too fat. To obtain a special dialing wand, please mash the key pad with your palm, now."

audience: outrageous!

new episode quote:
(homer throws pudding at Lenny)
Lenny: Ow, my eye! I'm not supposed to get pudding in it!
Mr. Burns: Ahaha, that was capital! My lung is aching.
Homer: I like when I throw the pudding.
Mr. Burns: Do it again.
Homer: You're the boss! (he hurls the pudding)
Lenny: Ow! I'm in hell!

audience: *blank stare*
that's not funny.

1.) The absolute greatest television show ever created.

perhaps the greatest thing ever to happen to weekdays and sunday nights at 8. Seasons 4-12 were the golden years. THe early ones were kinda stupid, and the later ones aren't as witty and clever, but i must love it to the end.
Haha, i have seen every single simpsons episode ever made multiple times

1. A highly influential, oft aped, animated television sitcom. First aired in late 1989; originated as a recurring animated skit on the Tracey Ullman show, created by Matt Groening.

2. The family depicted on the show of the same name.
I like The Simpsons, they are an interesting family. Their trials and tribulations make for excellent television watchin'!

one of the funniest shows ever
the funniest ones (I think) are the one where Homer keeps that rotten sandwich/sub and it turns different colors, the one where Homer keeps screaming because of a childhood memory(finding a corpse in the river)theres alot of funny ones too many to name
The best ever show that was ever made I may have seen every eposode of it but whenever I watch a old episode I still laugh even if I've seen it a thousand times
If you like the simpsons watch futurama not as good but its another great show
