The End Of The Simpsons?
It looks like The Simpsons -- 20th Century Fox Television’s multibillion-dollar cash cow, the anchor of the Fox network’s Sunday prime-time schedule, and the longest-running sitcom in the history of broadcasting -- might stop production after the current 23rd season ends next spring.
The reason is a negotiating impasse between the studio and the six principal actors who voice the beloved characters on the animated series that hilariously satirizes middle-class Midwestern angst.
The voice actors currently get $8 million each for 22 weeks of work. They are not willing to work for $4 million.
I haven't watched it in about five years. It used to be great, but I assume it's jumped the shark by now
