The show that gave birth to America's #1 show!
18 April 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

The Tracey Ullman Show helped to spin off The Simpsons into their own show and even helped launch the FOX Network (along with Married With Children). All an all, this was a pretty good show. It had a lot of funny sketches and some very funny, though crudely drawn, animated filler material (The Simpsons). There was another animated filler called Dr. N!godatu, but it did not last as long as the Simpson shorts. The Tracey Ullman Show was entertaining to say the least.
