The Simpsons: FXX to air all 600 episodes in 13-day marathon
From ew, Get ready for something more gluttonous than Homer Simpson in eating 64 slices of American cheese: FXX is airing all 600 episodes ofThe Simpsons in a row.
The marathon will take place over 13 days, from noon ET on Nov. 24, a.k.a. Thanksgiving Day, through Tuesday, Dec. 6. (The show’s 600th episode, which is Treehouse of Horror XXVII, airs Oct. 19 on mother network Fox.)
FXX is billing this binge as the longest-running marathon in TV history. The previous record holder also involves the animated Fox comedy. FXX held a 12-day, 552-episode event in 2014, which helped put the young network on the ratings map.
