Highlights from The Simpsons Take The Bowl

19 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's no point of reviewing Sunday (September 14) night's The Simpsons Take The Bowl show from The Hollywood Bowl, at least not in a traditional way. Sunday's presentation was the third and final night for The Simpsons Take The Bowl and, alas, if you didn't catch one of the shows... That's it. Sorry. Timed to loosely synchronize with the classic comedy's 25th anniversary, the show's recent syndicated move to Fxx and Sunday, September 28 premiere for the new season, The Simpsons Take The Bowl was a terrific two hours of live music, singing and dancing, culminating in fireworks. The event featured an assortment of new animation tailored around the venue, but also included classic "Simpsons" bits including Homer's plummet down the Springfield Gorge, Homer's gambol through The Land of Chocolate and the transition from the Ajax Steel Mill into The Anvil. I'm not sure that all of my favorite "Simpsons" musical moments were acknowledged. »

'The Simpsons' Live Anniversary Show: 8 Clips That Will Make You Wish You Were There

14 September 2014 5:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In even more depressing news that I'm getting old, "The Simpsons" turns 25 this year - and to mark the occasion, Matt Groening and friends have been entertaining their asses off at L.A.'s iconic Hollywood Bowl all weekend. Didn't get to go? Sucks for you! Below are 8 YouTube clips that will make you wish you'd been there to "Do the Bartman" with awkward abandon. The opening sketch Oh boy, this must have been really exciting live. Boy. Conan O'Brien sings "The Monorail Song" But not before taking digs at the Bowl's season ticket holders. "Weird" Al Yankovic performs "The Ballad of Homer and Marge" Oh my god, he's famous again. Yeardley Smith and Nancy Cartwright perform "Minimum Wage Nanny" Still the definitive Mary Poppins parody. Nancy Cartwright sings "Do the Bartman" You knew it was coming! 1990 was awesome. The Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles performs "Spider Pig" Only in America. »

9 Images from The Simpsons and Family Guy Crossover Episode

11 September 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Fox has released a bunch of new images from their upcoming Simpsons and Family Guy crossover episode, "The Simpson's Guy." In case you missed it, you can watch 5-minutes of the episode here. 

I fell in love with The Simpson's all over again when Fxx ran the Every Episode Ever Marathon, and this episode looks like it going to be hilarious. Here's the synopsis:

Peter (Seth MacFarlane) and the Griffins get out of dodge and end up in Springfield, where they are greeted by a friendly stranger named Homer Simpson (guest voice Dan Castellaneta), who welcomes his new “albino” friends with open arms. The families get along famously: Stewie (MacFarlane) becomes obsessed with Bart (guest voicec Nancy Cartwright) and his old-fashioned pranks; Lisa (guest voice Yeardley Smith) takes Meg (Mila Kunis) under her wing and is determined to find something – anything – at which she excels; Marge (guest voice Julie Kavner »

'Simpsons' star Yeardley Smith talks 'Family Guy' crossover, Hollywood Bowl show

11 September 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For a show entering its 26th season, "The Simpsons" has been generating a lot of fresh news lately.  There was last month's Fxx Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, in which all 552 episodes and the movie were aired in sequence, single-handedly transforming Fxx from a cable curiosity into a destination.  For lucky residents of Los Angeles, there's this weekend's The Simpsons Take The Bowl three night event. Starting on Friday, September 12, Hank Azaria will host a trio of live shows at the Hollywood Bowl featuring the likes of Conan O'Brien, Nancy Cartwright, Beverly D'Angelo, Jon Lovitz, Yeardley Smith, "Weird Al" Yankovic, series creator Matt Groening and more, with musical performances accompanied by clips. [Timed around the Bowl show is Thursday night's "Simpsons" music-themed marathon on Fxx, which runs from 8 p.m. to midnight.] And then for everybody, "The Simpsons" returns to Fox on Sunday, September 28 with a fall of new episodes that include a major character death and a "Futurama" crossover and that's not even mentioning the "Family Guy" premiere, which features a much-discussed visit to Springfield. »

'Family Guy' Meets 'The Simpsons' in Crossover Episode Photos

10 September 2014 11:58 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in July, Fox debuted an extended five-minute clip from Family Guy's Season 13 premiere, "The Simpsons Guy", a crossover with the long-running animated hit The Simpsons. With just under three weeks until this one-hour TV event takes place, Fox has debuted new photos from this highly-anticipated episode.

The premiere follows the Griffin clan as they somehow get stranded in Springfield, where they eventually encounter The Simpsons. These images show Peter Griffin (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and Homer Simpson (voiced by Dan Castellaneta) bonding over donuts before getting into a physical altercation. We also see Chris (voiced by Seth Green) trying out a pacifier alongside Maggie, Brian (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) showing contempt for Santa's Little Helper, Lisa (voiced by Yeardley Smith) trying to teach Meg (Mila Kunis) the saxophone and Bart (voiced by Nancy Cartwright) showing Stewie (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) how to skateboard.

A 'Simpsons' crossover with... 'The Simpsons'?

10 September 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

This fall, familiar faces from other places will pop up in Springfield—the Griffins from Quahog in an episode of Family Guy, the Planet Express crew from the 31st century in an episode of The Simpsons. But The Simpsons will toy with the crossover concept some more when Homer and his family match wits with… Homer and his family from The Tracey Ullman Show.

Airing Oct. 19 on Fox, the annual “Treehouse of Horror” Halloween episode contains a segment that parodies The Others, in which the Simpsons are haunted by another ghostly family living in the house. These ghosts turn out »

'The Roosevelts: An Intimate History': TV Review

4 September 2014 2:29 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It doesn’t take long for Ken Burns — this country’s preeminent documentary filmmaker — to demonstrate that by intertwining the lives of Teddy, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt for the first time, not only would the outcome be a definitive and linear look at how one family changed the course of American history, but also in that same time Burns does something even more important: He documents the doubts, the hardships, the failures, sicknesses and deaths, depression, etc. — and triples the impact with the inclusion of them all. That latter strain of the storytelling proves the most fascinating and maybe most

9 Things Revealed by Lifetime's 'Saved by the Bell' Movie

1 September 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Lifetime achieved the best and worst possible results with "The Unauthorized 'Saved by the Bell' Story," a TV movie that premiered last night: It wasn't exactly a cringe-inducing retelling of Dustin Diamond's memoir about his time as Screech on "Saved by the Bell," but it wasn't titillating or scandalous either. The movie had the stench of looming legal ramifications, as if the producers were terrified of Tiffani(-Amber) Thiessen and Mario Lopez arriving with defamation suits at any moment. (That makes sense considering the original memoir contains its fair share of serious accusations.) Subsequently, the only cast member with any dirt to spill was Diamond, whose woes were still pretty mundane as depicted. In other words: We weren't so excited or so scared, and we needed a few hundred caffeine pills just to stay awake during this damn movie.  But we did pick up a few interesting »

100 things that apparently happened, as told by 'The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story'

1 September 2014 10:10 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

On Monday, September 1, Lifetime ushered in a new generation of unauthorized biopics with its behind the scenes look at what really happened on the 1990s hit Saved by the Bell. The cast has largely disavowed themselves from the project and/or Dustin Diamond’s scandalous memoir Behind the Bell, and considering that the movie is based on that biography, it’s safe to say most of the things that happened in this movie didn’t really happen that way at all.

But still, we watch. We learn. We cringe. We tweet.
