What else are they going to get jobs doing??? Its not like they are actors they are voice actors... How many cartoon shows are going to pay them anywhere near 8 million dollars to do another show???

The 4 million Fox is proposing is the most they will get from any other place... There aint no huge demand for new cartoon shows...
voice actors/actresses actually make a sh*t load of money and so u cant say they wont get any jobs any where else. go to imdb.com and look at the resume for the voice actors of Homer, Marg, Bart, and Lisa. there all making money on side project. its the lesser the character that will take a major hit from him this.

sh*t alot of the voice actors/actresses have actually had screen time in a movie

ya they wont get paid the same amount but they will still find jobs

i was thinking they could have a show called springfield and it incorporates all of the characters from the show and not just the simpsons family.
Like 6 people do all the voices for the entire show. Azaria and Castellaneta do like 15 characters a piece.

Matt should just stop working with fox and go to another network. Im sure nbc, cbs, abc, cartoon net, comedy central would pick it up.

I've always wanted to watch a cartoon where the characters actually age. I think its a dope concept.
Dragon Ball Z. Well, at least Gohan did anyway. (everyone else stayed the same )

Anyway, The simpsons been a.ss for a while now. But it' too iconic to end it because of GREED. Let's see what happens.

The 5 main voice actors get paid around 8 million per season. While the studio gets billions off of merchandising, cross-over promo, etc. What the actors wanted to do in compromise was a 33% cut in salary with the addition of back-end profits which isn't really too much to ask since without them you have nothing. The studio is just getting greedy.

Ive been watching since they used to show mini clips of the simpsons after a commercial break during some show back in the late 80's. Its still a good show, but i hardly ever watch it anymore. Between Seth Mcfarlane, South Park, and adult swim, Simpsons really isnt a competitor anymore.

Eventually i will go back and watch all the newer seasons that i have missed. Cuz it is still funny. I actually like that they changed their formula. Simpsons had gotten really stale for a year or two. But now they realized they can get away with so much more sh*t and they gotta keep pushing the envelope if the wanna compete with the new guys.

This is just the time for greedy a.ss corporations to try and cheat everyone out of as much money as possible. whether its the NBA, TV, or every other as*hole corporation thats raping america.

this is the ONLY fox animated show that took most people from elementary school through adulthood. some people were born after the simpsons were already coming on. i hope it dont end this way they should at least give it a proper ending after all the money they made off of it, family guy and all those other fox cartoons will NEVER make it to 22 seasons. ever.

I still enjoy it, I know it's the cool thing to do to say the Simpsons fell off, and they did, but can't stay in the Golden age forever. Simpsons > Family Guy and Cleveland show though. American Dad is my sh*t though.

any show on fox thats makes fun of fox never stays on the air.
fox doesnt care and never has about any of the shows that made fox what it is.

they ridin that glee wave till it dies,and if worst comes to worst theyll just spend millions on talent shows and glee spin off untill another cartoon show saves'em.


the simpsons has gotten waaay better after the 7 year slump they had and ive been watchin since i was 6.
