US ratings: No lasting uplift for “Simpsons”, but tops Fox’s night

Homer’s not happy but Ned’s keeping positive, saying that they should be grateful to be rating as they are after 30 years.

The brief uptick to celebrate becoming the longest-running primetime scripted series on US TV didn’t last long, with “The Simpsons” falling back into the fractions.

Sunday’s episode scored a 0.9/4 rating and 2.147 million viewers.

Bar the share – that’s down from the previous episode‘s 1.0/4 and 2.473 million viewers, and down from the equivalent episode last year (1.0, 2.34m).

It was the top show in Fox primetime, however, with – once again – it being the only show above two million viewers.

This season – with just two more episodes to go – is averaging a 1.48 rating and 3.59m viewers.

The show had a lower amount of opposition than usual; around 18 million were on the other three broadcast networks during the episode’s timeslot.

See you next Tuesday!
