The Simpsons were the best thing ever during Seasons 3 to 8. After that, they progressively turned Homer into an obnoxious jerk and the show started having really incoherent story lines on most episodes.



Signature goes here!

What? $8 million just for recording your voice for a cartoon? I don't believe it.

Considering the show makes hundreds of millions (if not billions) yearly, I'd say those iconic voices are worth it.

The Simpsons have long outstayed their welcome.

That's because they copied Family Guy to prevent Family Guy from stealing from The Simpsons.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Let them make it to 25, and end the series with a movie.

The show's quality has dropped a lot (though the last three seasons were an improvement IMO). I admit I'll miss them though.

Even so it was watchable and entertaining until Season 12... It's about half way through Season 12 where I eventually found it unbearable. I had the first 12 seasons memorized, word for word. It's pretty much how I learned English... and I still carry on full conversations through Simpsons catchphrases to this day. Season 3 to 8 were incredible though. Some of the best TV to have ever occurred.

When sitcom actors can cash $1 million per episode (which is $20-25m per season), then it isn't hard to believe that the voice actors for the Simpsons get paid that much. With a show that popular you want to avoid any changes that may upset the viewers and the actors of course want their fair share of the profits the show generates.

I still don't believe it. An A class Hollywood actor typically gets $8-10 million for a movie (if he is not Leonardo Dicaprio or Will Smith) and a movie including preparations takes a year for an actor to make.



It would be a shame to end a show like The Simpsons for something like this.

A 45% pay cut is way too much to believe the network will succeed, and the cast proposition seems more sensible (although the % of the profits sure outweigh the 30% pay cut). In the end there is so much money involved to believe it will happen. Fox makes too much money from the show to lose it, specially now, and the actors don't want to lose their well paid job.



Please excuse my bad English.

But in the end a movie is just about two hours long while a full season for a show is eight to ten hours. I haven't looked at DVD prices in a while, but a full season should easily cost more than a single movie. And while the movie has also theaters to generate money, the TV show has commercial breaks; ads during prime time bring in a lot of money.
