The Simpsons New Year's Day Recovery Marathon


Broadcast History for January

Network Ten Broadcasts in January


Perhaps to compensate for the paucity of timeslots, Ten used the Sunday double timeslot to screen the remainder of Season Six, picking up from where they stopped when the Wednesday Simpsons timeslot was dropped at the end of November. This included both parts of Who Shot Mr Burns? (2F16 and 2F20). At the end of the 2Fxx series, Ten returned to the start of Season Two.

On Sunday, 31st January, The Simpsons were pre-empted by the golf.


Foxtel Broadcasts in January


FOX8 proudly kicked off the New Year with The Simpsons New Year's Day Recovery Marathon, comprising 30 selected episodes roughly following the theme of beer and the drinking of beer at Moe's. The selections covered the first seven seasons but concentrated on the first four. The usual weekday stream simply skipped over the Marathon without missing an episode.

Otherwise, January was pretty tame on Foxtel, all four streams continuing to progress through the usual sequence. The weekday stream showed a substantial portion of Season Eight. Weekend mornings saw viewers through from the end of Season Two to the end of Season Four. Evening viewers on the weekend could see the middle of Season Eight on Saturdays and the end of Season Seven on Sundays.

The only other thing of note was the continued sponsorship of the weekend morning stream by Arnotts. With five episodes packed into two hours, each with two ad breaks, Arnotts sponsorship spots, and some episodes rated PG rather than G, this stream is starting to look a bit messy. For those trying to record their favourite episodes, my recommendation is to try taping the other streams at the moment.
