Ready for a channel devoted to nothing but "The Simpsons?"
Don't laugh, it is one idea News Corp. Chief Operating Officer Chase Carey threw out when speaking Tuesday at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media Communications & Entertainment Conference in Beverly Hills.
Noting that "The Simpsons" shows no sign of slowing down as it prepares to start its 23rd season on News Corp.'s Fox network, Carey said the company is starting to have internal discussions about how to create additional revenue streams for the animated hit that goes beyond reruns on TV stations and DVD sales.

I think that's a bad idea and a half. We have enough bad TV networks with multiple shows. No offense to Simpsons fans.
I love the Simpsons, but the Simpsons Channel? Even I have to admit that would be a bit much.
It's time to let them go. If I wanted to see more of the Simpsons, I'd either download or go get a DVD season package.
I think that would be great. Just throw Family Guy on another network too.
I like this suggestion. Many people do not get all the levels of humor and thought of The Simpson's and Family Guy. But they offer more than just some laughs. Through parody we learn much about what makes humans human.
Stephanie and John, I completely agree with both of you. I am a huge Simpsons and Family Guy fan (so much so that I can usually be heard quoting Family Guy throughout the day) and believe that the parody they offer brings light to a lot of human interests. These shows are on a nation network and often syndicated elsewhere, bringing them into the homes of everyone. And they can say things that while, may offend some people, make others laugh out loud. To each their own. But when a show has been on the air for as long as The Simpsons have, why not give them their own channel? It's an amazing achievement for all involved and they should have the accolades to illustrate their hard work. Too bad I don't have cable.
Now that's funny. It's been on TV for 23 seasons and I've never watched a single episode.
Even as a joke(just kidding), it has nothing to do with being secluded.
I've always found the commercials to be fairly stupid, which led me to not watching it.
I have watched the Simpsons ever since they debuted on the Tracy Ulman show and then to their own.I like off beat humor and it helped me to unwind after a crazy work day.
To be honest, I had no idea they were still making The Simpsons. We used to get it here in the UK and some of the episodes were fairly amusing - though Groundskeeper Willie is about as believably Scottish as... some guy from a long way from Scotland! Maybe we still do get it and it is simply the fact that I gave up watching TV a few years back that has caused me to stop noticing...

So which show is funnier? Is the Simpsons losing some of it's "funny" shine? Or is South Park more or less funny? I am laughing less and less at the Simpsons these days. While Cartman et al are as crude and...

Many people think that Family Guy is a bit overboard, not me, I think its hilarious.I would like to know your thoughts on this show or any other show which you think should be taken off air.
