GOODBYE, SIMPSONS? (I HOPE?)
voices carry
Is the end in sight? The voice actors behind "The Simpsons" are in a deadlock with management, supposedly putting a 16th season for the show in jeopardy.

Given that the show is still such a cash cow for Fox, I have little doubt that they'll come to an agreement in fairly short order and roll on from there. But for me, the show's been running on fumes for over five years now; it's simply wretched, even if most of the morons in TV viewerland can't figure that out. I say, if this results in the show finally being put down, then do it. The shark has jumped long ago for Homer and clan. I'm much happier watching the reruns from the mid-90s.
