US ratings: ‘Simpsons’ back down a smidgen, yet tops Fox’s night

Homer’s found a coping strategy for the steadily-decreasing ratings – comfort-eating New Orlean shrimp.

Sunday’s episode was back down in fraction town, with a 0.9/4 rating and 2.194 million viewers (of which around 56% – around 1.23 million viewers – were aged 18-49, in the key demo). Both the demo rating – bar the share – and viewership were down from last week‘s 1.0/4 and 2.262m.

“The Simpsons” narrowly beat “Family Guy” in the demo rating, and also came out on top in viewership, being the only show above two million viewers on Fox during Sunday primetime.

So far, this season is averaging a 1.55 demo rating and 3.741m viewers.

Opposition on the other three main networks was around 19-20 million; lower opposition than usual should correlate to highest viewership, but the downtick in ratings may be actually due to how the evenings are getting lighter and so people aren’t watching TV until later.

See you next Tuesday, to see how many tune in to see “The Simpsons” become the longest-running scripted primetime TV series. My guess is that it’ll just remain steady.

‘The Simpsons’ will become TV’s longest running primetime scripted series next week!

TV's longest running primetime scripted series
The Simpsons will air its 636th episode next week. It doesn’t seem a special number, but it actually is.

The TV show Gunsmoke, from the 50s, is the current “TV’s longest running primetime scripted series”, with 635 episodes. The most recently aired episode of The Simpsons, “Lisa Gets the Blues“, is the yellow family’s 635th episode.

Next week, on April 29, 2018; The Simpsons is airing a new episode (“Forgive and Regret“), which will be the show’s 636th episode, thus surpassing Gunsmoke‘s number of episodes, and therefore The Simpsons will become TV’s longest running primetime scripted series.

And, given that The Simpsons still has more episodes to air during the current season (Season 29), it is renewed for a 30th Season, and the people who do the show has said there is no intention to end anytime soon, it may be fair to say that The Simpsons will probably hold that record for a long, long time.
