The Simpsons in its prime could lay claim to being the best sit-com on TV, if not the all-out best show. Alas it lost its way long ago, even with the pretty decent movie it hasn't got back to anything like the quality it used to have. It really should end now, Futurama has shown Groening is obviously talented and still has funny stuff in him so there is no reason to go on flogging a dead horse. I get it makes money, but it always will even with endless re-runs. It works for stuff like Friends after all. They can always do another movie in 5 years to create a new surge in merchandise sales. Either do more new Futurama or something totally different and original, either way The Simpsons needs to be put to bed.
