Articles for The Simpsons Season 21

It has been more than a month and a half since we were treated to a new episode of The Simpsons, the last one aired on December 7.  Finally, America‘s favorite animated family returns tonight on our screens with an episode called “Lisa the Drama Queen.”On the episode, Lisa meets an equally academic and creative new friend Juliet (voiced by guest star Emily Blunt) and together they construct a fantasy world that takes them both a little too far from reality.  Also on this episode, Grammy-nominated pop punk band Fall Out Boy performs a special version of the end credits theme. Read more »

Wonder why there‘s no Family Guy and American Dad tonight? FOX preempted these two shows and it‘s for a pretty good reason.
