In case you're not obsessively refreshing our front page (like you're supposed to!), here's a story with news that the Simpsons have been picked up through 2005. Now, I love the Simpsons as much as the next guy, but I can't help but wonder if the quality is diminishing over time. It's the classic Television quality bell curve, a series hits its stride around the third season, sustains that for four, five, maybe six seasons if they're lucky, and then it just falls apart. So does this news excite you, or just make you worry that the show will just degrade and finally be cancelled with its tail tucked between its legs?
