It will be a crime not to laugh when Kristen Wiig gets Simpsonized. The former Saturday Night Live lady gets animated for an upcoming Simpsons episode to air on Fox in the fall, according to the EW report. Speaking of SNL, Wiig returned to the familiar comedy set to host back on May 11. She may have played host then, for The Simpsons she’ll play an officer of the law. She’s an FBI agent! How interesting.
The episode, to be titled “Homerland,” reveals Homer acting out of character. He’s too nice after returning from a nuclear power plant convention. This is very suspicious behavior, suspicious enough for his daughter, Lisa to enlist the help of an “intense” FBI agent. That will be Wiig’s character. »

While their English-language counterparts have struggled in the ratings so far this year, Univision and Telemundo are headed in the other direction.
The Spanish-language broadcasters recorded some historic highs in the first quarter, with Univision closing in on NBC in 18-49 and pulling ahead of it in the younger half of the demo. And for the 2012-13 season to date, Telemundo, Univision and its sister network UniMas are the only broadcasters showing any growth in the 18-49 demo, according to Nielsen.
From Dec. 31, 2012 to March 31, 2013, Univision averaged 1.94 million adults 18-49 to 2.17 million for NBC, with the former up 4% and the latter down a big 37% from last year when its first quarter included the Super Bowl. CBS, which benefited from the Super Bowl this season, was the easy winner with 4.11 million viewers in the demo.
Univision made history in the younger 18-34 demo, as its 897,000 viewers put it ahead of NBC »
