This season Smithers

It is true. I read about it also.

They are beginning to get desperate for ratings. This might be the final season.

    If there is an episode tie-in we might see the return of the Pride trees and the Steel Mill. A new skin for Smithers would be welcome. I have nothing specific in mind but I'd like him to have some new animated tasks.

    A good time to also release John with the Cockamanie's store & Shaboom Kaboom Cafe. As well as John's Cadillac as a decoration.

    It's going to be a two part episode actually involving him coming out to Mr. Burns. Al Jean said that this entire season is more Smithers focused than usual. I don't think they're desperate for ratings. Regardless of what we think of the shows quality at this point they've been renewed for a couple of more seasons and Fox isn't going to let go just yet.


    and YES John Waters is a must have for my Springfield.

    I hope he comes out as gay because Roscoe is literally the ONLY character I am missing. It is killing me.

    Wonder if we could get a new quest line for Smithers and Julio introduced into the game?

    This has nothing to do with ratings. The Simpsons has always tackled current social topics and this is no different. The shows ratings have been steady for many many years.

    Actually they have fallen to all-time lows.

    Yes, but...it is still one of FOX's top rated shows. Just because the ratings are historically lower, it still pulls in enough viewers to make it one of networks top properties - which is why it has already been renewed for this year and next (season 28).

    This is from May, 2015 (last season):
    "This season, THE SIMPSONS is averaging a 2.7/8 among Adults 18-49 – steady year-over-year in the core demo and Total Viewers (6.0 Mil). Over 30 days, THE SIMPSONS delivers an average audience of 7.7 million across platforms, +45% higher than its Live + Same Day total audience (7.7 vs. 5.3 Mil). In fact, even in its 26th season, the series ranks as one of the Top 10 shows overall on broadcast television among Men 18-34 and Male Teens and ranks among the Top 20 in Adults 18-34, Men 18-49 and Men 25-54."

    And while this seasons premiere was down from last season, you can see below that it still gets more viewers than anything on FOX Sunday's.

    Indeed. Network television/tv in general is struggling for ratings so historical lows also happen to be this years highest ratings at the same time.
