Nobody Actually Watches the Simpsons Anymore – Part 2

a new episode of “The Simpsons” (6.4 million, 3.0/9), which rated slightly lower than an 8:30 p.m. repeat of “The Simpsons” (6.5 million, 3.1/8)

Want more proof that nobody actually watches the Simpsons anymore? Viewers can’t tell the difference between an old episode of the Simpsons and a new one. Sure there have been plenty of Simpsons episodes over the years, but they’ve gotten so forgettable and disposable the viewer can’t tell if Homer falling down a well and deciding to open a pizza shop before getting in trouble with the mob while bonding with Bart on a trip to Italy to meet the mysterious Don Pizzarini (Guest Voiced by Janet Reno) is a new episode or a repeat.

Not an actual episode? Stick around another season and it will be. In fact it’s a funnier idea than what actually will be on next season. The Simpsons didn’t jump the shark. It’s a rotting hunk of meat in the shark’s bowels and while far superior spinoffs like The Critic and Futurama were cancelled, it lingers on in crazed senility, an animated Dick Clark who isn’t funny, has nothing to say and just won’t go away.
