question of the day: Who is still watching ‘The Simpsons’?

The Simpsons is officially a record-breaker… or at least, it will be. With Fox’s announcement that it will run for at least two more seasons, the show will surpass the record held by Gunsmoke as the longest-running prime-time series on American TV, and will finish up — assuming that the show is not extended further — with 493 episodes.

Here’s my question: Who is still watching The Simpsons?
Ratings for the show have not been great of late, and I wonder if a lot of former viewers feel like I do: that the show simply isn’t fresh anymore and is no longer worth making an effort to catch. The Simpsons used to be appointment viewing for me, to the point where I’d be upset if I missed an episode, but it’s been a long time since I felt that way. And when I do happen to catch an episode by accident, I find it mildly amusing, but in no way evidence that I’m missing anything by not watching regularly.

I did note, however, that the show has finally gone to HD. It does look nice…

Are you still watching The Simpsons?
