Starting Monday, July 15, The Comedy Network will show the evolution of one of the most successful television comedies of all time by airing the most popular episode from each season of THE SIMPSONS, as determined by viewers, over 12 consecutive nights. “The Evolution of THE SIMPSONS” marathon will run July 15-26 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
The episodes will be determined by an on-line contest currently underway. Almost 10,000 Comedy Network viewers have put in their dibs on their all-time favourite episodes of the classic television series. So far, “The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson,” “The Call of the Simpsons” and “Flaming Moe’s” are leading the way as fan favourites.
All entries will be entered in a draw to win the revolutionary Bell ExpressVu Personal Video Recorder (including basic installation and the Ultimate 7 programming package for one year), along with a 32″ Sony Wega television. The prize is valued at over $4,000.00.
Viewers can vote online at www.thecomedynetwork.ca or by mailing in their submissions (one vote per season).
Airing daily at 9:00 p.m. and 12:00 midnight ET/PT, THE SIMPSONS is The Comedy Network’s highest-rated series ever, achieving an average daily audience of 211,000 (aged 2+ per average minute) since it joined the network schedule in September of 2001.
