Woo-hoo! FOX renews 'The Simpsons' for two Moe seasons

A quarter-century of Homer and company feels very good indeed.

I know I've told this story before, but in the wake of FOX ordering two more seasons of "The Simpsons" - which will bring the show through its 24th and 25th seasons, continuing its stretch as the longest-running primetime scripted show in American TV history(*) - it's worth repeating again:

Morning Round-Up: Thoughts on 'South Park,' 'Suburgatory,' 'Up All Night' and more

Alan also discusses the latest episodes of 'Modern Family' and 'Hart of Dixie'

Back in the early days of the old blog, I tended to do a lot of round-up posts where I offered quick thoughts on a bunch of shows at once. I phased that out after a while, as it became clear that readers didn't like them as much as the longer individual review posts, with the round-ups always getting a much lower comment total. But in an effort to cover as much of the new season as I can while still maintaining my sanity and a workable schedule, I'm going to try them out again from time to time, to hit up a bunch of shows that I've seen but don't have much to say about. These may be more trouble than they're worth, but I'm going to give it a shot.

For this one, we're going to try to hit, in order, "South Park," "Suburgatory," "Up All Night," "Modern Family" and "Hart of Dixie," all coming up just as soon as I have some Jameson's...

HitFix First Look: Walt cleans up a mess on Sunday's 'Breaking Bad' finale

Watch the first minute of the season 4 finale

The "Breaking Badseason 4 finale airs Sunday night at 10 p.m. on AMC. Based on the 700+ comments on my review for the penultimate episode (a HitFix record, by a lot), and on my own advance viewing of what I think is an excellent finale, I imagine everyone will be eager to see and then discuss that episode on Sunday.

But while you're waiting, we have another sneak peek clip: literally the first minute or so of the episode, so you don't need to worry about seeing anything out of context. What you see if you click through(*) is exactly what you'll see as soon as the "Previously, on 'Breaking Bad'" clip ends Sunday night at 10:02-ish.

(*) As with the last time I saw this, I will remind you that if you don't want to see anything in advance, you do not have to watch it, and also that we are going to restrict any and all discussion of the scene to this post, and not in the comments of the most recent episode review. There's nothing that is going to alter people's perceptions of "End Times," or give away where the finale is going, but for the sake of purity, if you want to discuss this scene, do it here.

So enjoy, and I look forward to all the reaction on Sunday night around 11:08 p.m.

What did everybody think of the new FX horror series?

Okay, I gave my review of FX's "American Horror Storyyesterday. Now it's your turn. Was it too crazy, not crazy enough or just right for your tastes? Do you enjoy Dylan McDermott's yelling more when he's naked, or less? How do you feel about Mrs. Coach being in the same room with a gimp suit? And how 'bout that font? 

I've seen three episodes and feel comfortable that this will never be a show I will enjoy, or likely write about again, but have at it. Is anyone setting the season pass?
