Surprise! FXX will air 'The Simpsons' A LOT after 12-day marathon
FXX was so woo-hoo! thrilled to acquire the rights to The Simpsons that it programmed a 12-day marathon of all 552 episodes as well as The Simpsons Movie. (Only three-and-a-half-more days to go, sleep-deprived masses!)
The marathon, which has been a big ratings hit for the fledgling network, is actually just a training run, though: FXX announced today that starting September 2, it will offer up Simpsons reruns on Mondays from 6 p.m. to midnight, Tuesdays from 8 p.m. to midnight, Thursdays from 8 p.m. to midnight, Fridays from 6 p.m. to midnight, and Sundays from 4 to 8 p.m.
That leaves you two nights a week to find the show airing elsewhere in syndication, make some headway into your Springfield-overloaded DVR, or attempt to rebuild relationships with loved ones.
