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.

the best god damn fucking american animation ever! it is the longest running american sitcom and the longest running american animation program to date. it was created by cartoonist Matt Groening and is a spinoff of the 1980s program from The Tracey Ullman Show. the show circulates around the simpson family- homer, marge, bart, lisa, and maggie- and their "typical" life. there is a hoard of post Cold War popculture and everyone is a protrayed after a stereotypical figure. the simpson's is now on their 17th (or 18th) season.

the simpsons is pure genius because unlike many shows on FOX like Family Guy, the simpsons doesnt need to pile a load of crude humor and sexual jokes just to be funny.
the simpsons is almost 18 years old. matt groening based many aspects of the show off of his own family and childhood in portland, oregon. almost every character is a stereotypical figure. e.g.:

homer- lazy dad with a low level job
marge- typical suburban housewife of the 1950s
mr. burns- evil rich bossman
chief wiggum- over weight lazy police officer
ralph wiggum- school wierdo
nelson muntz and his crew- schoolyard bullies who beat you up for your lunch money
martin prince- teacher's pet and geek
edna krabappel- downtrodded school teacher
seymour skinner- educational bureacrat
fat tony- mob boss
dr nick- shady quack
apu- southeast/middle east asian shop keeper
helen lovejoy- town gossip
cletus- southern white trash (in this case, the "slack jawed yokel")
ned flanders- wierdo neighbor who has a perfect life and is also a devouted christian

the rest of the characters are self explainatory. these are the most obvious

still, the simpsons is the greatest tv show on the planet and when it ends, i shall throw myself upon a sword and DIE!!!!

A show which at one time had you on the floor laughing. Among all of FOX's failed attempts at successful TV (Titus, That 80s Show, Greg The Bunny, Futurama, etc.), it's one of the few shows that really brought up the ratings for FOX (Family Guy, That 70s Show, The Simpsons). However, it's getting old and unfortunately enough, is taking the same path as Seinfeld, which, thankfully, was cancelled just after its peak. The Simpsons are now entering their what...16th season? And the jokes are becoming drab and uninteresting. Becoming as big of a shame to itself as Godfather III.
Family Guy is the new, slightly less mature "The Simpsons"

a show that used to be good. The Simpsons will still be my favorite show of all time. Seasons 4-15 are the best. The first 3 seasons are a little too serious and boring. The last couple of seasons are just about issues like gay marriage, global warming, obesity, body image, and are packed with guest stars, obviously because they are running out of ideas.
The Simpsons needs to end! It will always be a good show, but it just needs to end right now!

Not only is the Simpsons the greatest cartoon ever, it is the greatest TV show ever!
The Simpsons is what the Beatles are to music, what De Niro is to Acting, what Tiger Woods is to Golf, THE BEST!!!
Classic moment from the Simpsons:

Homer: Are you saying you're never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Ham?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Pork chops?
Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal.
Homer: Heh heh heh. Ooh, yeah, right, Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.

The best show ever made. the only people who think family guy is better are the ones who have never seen simpsons episodes from the golden years (season 4-8), which are way more clever and consistently funny than anything family guy has ever put out. just think how terrible family guy would be if it went on for 18 seasons.
after watching seasons 4-8 of the simpsons on dvd, i realized that i'm a fucking idiot for ever thinking family guy was the best show ever.
