Fox airs brand-new "Simpsons"
Attention all “Simpsons” fans: Forget about that trip to the beach house a week from Sunday. Fox is giving you some “sweet, sweet candy” to alleviate your summer Springfield withdrawal — an all-new episode airing at 8 p.m. (August 23). Although the “Simpsons” doesn’t officially begin its new season until September 20, the special show, “Lard of the Dance” (a holdover from last season), features a guest appearance by “Friends” star Lisa Kudrow. While a Fox publicist won’t divulge the episode’s plot, don’t be surprised if America’s favorite donut-wielding dad tries his own bare-bellied Michael Flatley impersonation.
