This Week’s Top 5 TV Moments: ‘Every Simpsons Ever’ Over


There are scores of TV shows out there, with dozens of new episodes each week, not to mention everything you can find on Hulu Plus, Netflix streaming, and HBO Go. How’s a viewer to keep up? To help you sort through all that television has to offer, Flavorwire is compiling the five best moments on TV each week. This round, FXX swaps out its epic Simpsons marathon for The League.

FXX Finished Airing #EverySimpsonsEver

Many stopped paying attention to FXX’s marathon/publicity stunt once it burned through peak Simpsons, i.e. Seasons 1 through 8 or so. But #EverySimpsonsEver kept going and didn’t stop until Monday, powering through more than a dozen additional seasons of the beloved animated sitcom. If you missed the main event, fear not: Simpsons World is coming to a device near you, enabling your worst binge-watching habits in a way even Netflix never has.

The League Resumes Play

Everyone’s favorite niche comedy about fantasy football is back, and it welcomes fans with… the untimely death of Adam Brody, and a draft held at his funeral. There is also morgue sex involved, lest you think the dynamic doesn’t get more delightfully fucked up from there.

Frank Underwood and “Stephen Colbert” Have a Chat

We know exactly where Stephen Colbert’s going after The Colbert Report ends, but if you’re looking for “Stephen Colbert,” he went to see Frank Underwood about some train tracks. Kevin Spacey stopped by the show in all his drawl-y, “menacingly homespun” glory, dropping “G”s and talkin’ long-winded dog metaphors. Watch the clip above.

The Saved by the Bell Movie Happened

… and Lifetime never made a godawful TV movie again. LOL JK! Anyway, here is Pilot Viruet’s cogent explanation of why this entry into the late-summer doldrums doesn’t even deserve the Lifetime trademark brand of so bad it’s good.

Candidly Nicole Ends Its First Season

Purple hair haver, American hero, and star of 2014’s best dance track Nicole Richie wrapped up the first installment of her new reality show Candidly Nicole last night. The premise was exactly as mundane as it sounded, and it mostly served to remind us of how great The Simple Life was the first time around. In summation: perfect late-summer TV.
