Do people still watch that shit? Simpsons hasn't been good in over a decade.
I still enjoy the show- at least more than most of the shit on TV, but this...uhhhh, I don't know how they bounce back from losing Shearer. He does so many voices of key characters.
behind every Jackie move is a Nanci, and Shearer's wife makes Nanci seem like a bargain.
44? More like 64.
voice over work is the easiest gig in showbiz, it takes very little time, and can now be done from almost anywhere on the planet. I can't believe it's really about them not letting Shearer do side work.
If she's 44, then I'm 24!
Good bye funny man.
I haven't watched the show in several years due to its badness but I can't imagine a Simpsons without Harry. Just end it. Please.
must be early senility that has to be the best gig in Hollywood....money for nothing
either that or he's tired of dodging the UFOs flying out of yeardley smith's head
It's Murdoch's,I mean Fox,big cash cow............Still some milk in the tits they want to squeeze out.
Get Billy West to do those voices. Over the years I have heard/read about Shearer's disdain for the show and his work so I can see how they'd want to part ways with him in this manner. It sounds like he bitches too much, but there again, FOX makes money on this shit hand over fist. It would be nice for them to reward the voices of the show (after they had already taken a pay cut) with some kind of back-end deal that's a thank you beyond their salary.
He wil sign..he is like all the teachers I worked with...never striked for better conditions...always about their raises...
If he leaves, then The Simpsons are done. And I mean more done than they have been for the last ten seasons. That much done.
robin, they heard my ted kennedy impressions so they pushed shearer out to try to get me.
i told them im too busy programming the radio channels and i dont want to let my fans down.
but... if the price is right.
remember when billy was here i taught him all the voices he does?
She does look older than her years. So he married a 24 y/o when he was 48? So much for his intellectual pretensions. He's just another horn dog.
Simpsons were funny on Tracey Ullman show. Crudely drawn. Homer is a dick. Didn't like the TV show ever.
I'll be this guy today:
I still love the show.
The show still makes me laugh.
Yes, they've run out of plots, but satire remains sharp and one-liners are frequently killer.
THE SIMPSONS isn't the pop culture powerhouse it once was, but it's still quality work.
In a world of ghastly CBS-style sitcoms and alt-comedy dreck, it remains creative and fun.
I'm with you. No, it's not the same, but there's something cool about the smaller, more esoteric paths the show has taken.
They should Keyser Soze the motherfucker and kill off every Shearer character in one gigantic freak accident. They've got the characters to spare. I also love vaporizer's idea of bringing in Billy.
Update: Shearer has revealed to CNN there is still time for him to remain part of the cast, but only if producers enable him to do other work.
He's still around.
