The SimpsonsSo how long is too long when it comes to series television? Is 23 seasons too long? Should 'The Simpsons' finally be put to rest? Whatever your feelings, they don't matter to Fox, which has renewed the long-running animated sitcom for a 23rd season.

With this renewal, the show will be able to hit the very rare 500-episode mark, approaching 'Lassie' and 'Gunsmoke' for the record of aired episodes. This might be one of Fox's goals: Imagine the feather in the network's cap from owning the longest-running television program ever. Mind you, to beat that record, we're looking at an additional five to six seasons of the show.
