FOX orders more Simpsons, King of the Hill

simpsons renewedI am going to ease you into this because the news may make you feel... old. FOX just renewed The Simpsons for two more seasons. What seasons, you ask? Seasons 18 and 19. Do you need a second to get your heart medication?

Seriously. It's been that long, folks. The Simpsons debuted way back in 1989. Remember all the media coverage and freaking out about how it was a cartoon but it wasn't meant for little kids? Adults just couldn't get their minds around that. And, remember when Barbara Bush told Time magazine that The Simpsons was the dumbest thing she'd ever seen? Of course, the writers got their revenge a few years later.

I'd like to think that The Simpsons is still edgy and socially relevant after all these years, it's just the viewing public that has changed. That's pretty remarkable. You know what's also remarkable? The fact that Maggie doesn't seem to be getting any bigger.

Oh yeah, FOX also renewed King of the Hill for an 11th season.

King of the Hill is still on?

What are you going to tell me next, Malcom is still on too?

How can both those shows stay on Fox when you never see ads for them, yet AD was advertised out the ass and it got canned. WTF, Fox?

King of the Hill is probably the most consistent show I've ever seen, so it's not like they can blame the show if it gets poor ratings. I suppose it holds its timeslot well, and they can sell it into syndication easily.

If FOX wants ratings then bring back Futurama!

FOX had to order more "King of the Hill" because they need comedies and they can't launch a good live action sitcom to save their lives. The only one that may return next year is the god awful "The War at Home." Both "Free Ride" and "The Loop" are getting terrible ratings.
