Why is The Simpsons so popular?

Recommended Posts

I remember watching it when it first came out. Yes, that long ago lol Going on 32 seasons. Why do you think The Simpsons is one of the longest running shows? I had searched for the answer & one of the reasons was you don’t need to be crude to be funny. Now I haven’t watched it in a long time but they have to be doing something right.

Not anymore they aren’t. The stories and stale, the plots are bombs, and the characters are nothing like they were originally.

Even Matt Groening quit the show more than a decade ago for the same reasons. And he created the dam characters.

Eventually shows need to get the hint and die off. The Simpsons hasn’t got the memo apparently.

  1. They have made so many skits about things that actually happen years after the episode
  2. It was really funny back in the days but not so much now (it and family guy suffers from the long running syndrome)
  3. It's a long running show so it has a huge following

Yeah there was a YouTube video I seen awhile back that referred to them now as "Zombie Simpsons". After a lot of original writers left the show did become incredibly stale and started to heavily rely on pop culture and the flavor of the month content. For some reason the show is still popular amongst a younger audience and I see them everywhere with merchandise and a lot of stuff on social media. It's too bad because when you watch those older clips they were comedy gold!

I believe the show is great because unlike the competitor show,”family guy", The Simpson's don't try too hard to be funny it just naturally happens throughout the show, the comedy isn't forced at all. The show is original and it continues to do its own thing, as more characters come about, more natural comedy comes with. Homer isn't as stupid as Peter is on Family guy, some people don't like stupidity as a hit comedy all the time. The Simpson's stays at a constant and even when they need to spice things up they automatically do it with the littlest features. The Simpson's could add as little as a new character, or change the intro either way the story will always be something that a family can relate to somehow some way.
