Also worth noting that The Simpsons exists in the FOX schedule for thirty seasons, and the animated sitcom is still keeping strong television ratings. The season premiere has garnered 3.24 million viewers with a 1.4/5 key demo rating/share among adults (P18-49). At the same time, some episodes of the thirteenth season have showcased the results above praise. So, for instance, The Simpsons S30E10 has drawn 7.53 million viewers, while S30E12 has gathered over eight million viewers (8.20). As a result, nothing is surprising in that FOX opted to pick up The Simpsons for one more round.
As mentioned above, in addition to the impressive television ratings, The Simpsons may boast with a reception, which the 30th season has received from critics and viewers. On Rotten Tomatoes, The Simpsons Season 29 holds a score of 7.3/10 and a 99% approval rating from critics, while viewers have rated the jubilee season of the animated sitcom at 3.9/5 and have given a 78% rating. In the meantime, on IMDb, The Simpsons preserves a score of one of the most top-rated television shows, 8.7/10 based on over 334,600 votes.
Summing up, it seems that FOX isn't going to cancel The Simpsons, and, in our opinion, the animated sitcom should survive on FOX within at least ten more seasons. We hope that we are right in our forecast on the subject.
The Simpsons Summary
The Simpsons is no doubt one of the most popular television series, which is airing on FOX since 1989. Set in the fictional town of Springfield, the animated sitcom centers on a working class family. Homer, the family patriarch works at the local Nuclear Power Plant, where he takes a responsible position, yet he doesn't care about safety rules at all. Homer is an artless good fellow, who adores donuts and beer. Though Homer can't boast with intellect, the lack of the latter is compensated by his love to his wise wife, Marge, as well as their three children, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie.
Lisa is the prodigy of the family, while Bart is a prankster, who never follows the rules. Maggie has been a never becoming adult child, who occasionally acts wiser than the rest members of the family. Generally speaking, Springfield is full of title characters who worth special attention, and, by the way, some episodes of the animated sitcom are devoted to their respective stories. Yet mostly, the animated sitcom The Simpsons showcases the life of the American working class, with references to politics, cultural influences, urban legends, show business, etc.
