10 TV Shows We Just Couldn't Quit (Even Though We're Not Sure Why)

The Simpsons

The show that helped establish the FOX television brand is now something of a footnote for the network – though, 24 seasons later (season 25 will premiere September 29), it still helps anchor a Sunday night block of animation – and despite rumors to the contrary, will seemingly never be shuffled off to the great animated beyond. The Simpsons may not be as culturally relevant or as flat-out funny as it once was, but Matt Groening's creation has blossomed from a short animated segment on The Tracy Ullman Show to a media empire, and now into a comforting reminder of the kind of scathing commentary and hilarious comedy that can be accomplished within a television medium once thought appropriate only for children.

But even if Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa don't quite pack the satirical punch they once did, there're still times when The Simpsons manages to knock one out of the park – especially if there is a social issue worth tackling. Besides, even if you don't watch the series regularly anymore, there is still the annual lure of The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror – which, incidentally, this season will be XXIV, making this Halloween tradition older than most college freshman.
