We’ve all been hearing for years about the decline of DVD and Blu-ray sales.

FXX Network (the spin-off of the FX Network) has started showing a continuous marathon of The Simpsons. Over a 12-day period from August 21st to September 1st, FXX will show every single episode of the long-running animated series, along with The Simpsons Movie from 2007.

Way back when in The Simpsons‘s thirteenth season, an episode titled Gump Roast (DABF12 for those in the know), ended with the catchy tune They’ll Never Stop The Simpsons, which was merely a clever exercise in self-deprecation on a show that, 13 years in, was still quite beloved. Nearly 12 years later that song has turned quite prophetic as FOX has just renewed the entire town of Springfield for one more season.
On September 29th, 2013, America’s favorite family will be hitting the quarter century mark as The Simpsons begins its 25th season. Across the previous 24 seasons, the coveted celebrity guest spot has become almost as synonymous with the show as the Simpsons themselves. With the upcoming season just a few months away, EW.com has revealed that among the upcoming guest stars will be the return of “The Boy Who Lived” himself, or at least the actor that portrays him, Daniel Radciffe.
