    No thanks. I don't watch it when it is on now, and it seems like it is always on somewhere.

    Dear Fox Executives,

    Please get your heads out of your asses. The Simpsons have gone past stale and have started to get moldy. Please end it already.

    Signed, Eric

    Like anybody's going to even see it.

    Doesn't anybody know how TV subscriptions work? For starters, it'll only be offered in select markets on the super duper triple exclusive tier plan that costs $250 per month where it'll be lost in a sea of 500 NFL channels. By the time it gets to where most people can actually get it, it'll air The Simpsons about as often as you see music on MTV or science fiction on SyFy.

    It's still funnier than Family Guy.

    Granted, CTRL+ALT+DELETE is funnier than Family Guy.

    Ass cancer is funnier than Family Guy.

    I'll take a bad Simpsons episode over 66% of what's on TV these days.

    Truth.

    It'll be like this:
    Up next on The Simpsons Network:
    Cops!
    Followed by Cheaters.
    Then WWE Nitro.

    Keep it here on your Simpsons Network.

    haha. wake me when they apologize for cancelling *enter good series cancelled by fox, here* and use the MILLIONS of dollars it will take to make a new channel, to bring back these show.

    Simpsons stopped being good about 2000ish. although to be fair, maybe i just outgrew it :lol 

    how ever i am sure if there was a simpsons channel that aired most of the older episodes, i'd watch it. as long as they didn't edit them!

    ^This.

    Also Family Guy is a ripoff of the Simpsons and got staler as soon as they were uncancelled.

    Seriously It's a TRAP was awful.......man just wow that sucked.

    The Simpsons will still always be better than Family Guy in every way possible.

    ^^^Yeah!

    Seth Macfarlene said he was probably going to end the series soon. He said he doesn't think he's gonna go as far as the Simpsons.

    If it does happen, this isn't something that's going to happen any time soon. From the article that is linked to the article in the original post...

    And I'm wondering if this is going to be an actual, separate network or just a channel connected to the main Fox station. They mention 'digital channel' and that makes me think of some of the extra digital channels I get on over-the-air HD that have specific content. Like the NBC 11.2 digital channel that just runs classic TV shows from several decades ago, the CW 22.2 channel that shows only music videos or the three different PBS digital channels that show various content. This 'Simpsons network' might be nothing more than a 'local Fox.2' station with the series + movie(s) on a constant loop.

    I'd be happy if they just air all the old episodes in that network. As in, before the series began sucking.

    Ummmm... no. Just no.

    I gave up watching The Simpsons right after the 2002-03 season after it started going down the toilet.

    I just told my mom about it. She is hoping that our cable company does not provide it.
