Programming note: Vacation, followed by news

Programming note: Vacation, followed by news

See you next week

Just a heads up, folks: Taking the rest of this week and early next off for a bit of family time and R&R. A few pre-written reviews will publish in my absence — two tonight, in fact —  but anything that gets skipped (including this week's Ask Alan) is because of the vacation. If major TV news breaks, or a notable show does its best/worst episode ever, I won't be around to write about it.

Ask Alan: Who is TV's greatest wordsmith?

Episodes without any regular castmembers in them, and a better title for Terriers

(Post updated, now with the proper video. We apologize for the technical glitch this morning.)

Happy Friday, everybody! Time for a new Ask Alan, where I discuss the rare phenomenon of ongoing shows doing episodes where none of the regular castmembers appear, try to untangle my usual list of TV's greatest writers of oratory, and respond to yet another suggestion for a better Terriers title.

Why it's a good thing that Fox has renewed 'The Simpsons' again

Homer and company will be around at least through season 30 now

Earlier this fall, The Simpsons aired its 600th episode, a staggering number of any era of television, but especially for the era in which it was created, when shows typically produced only 22 episodes a season. (The more recent 13 and even 10-episode seasons of shows shudder at the thought of making that many.) And now the show is about to break a record that seemingly seemed unbreakable: Fox has renewed the animated comedy through its 30th season, which will also bring it to its 669th episode, blowing right past the 635 episodes Gunsmoke produced from 1955-75.
