Fox Will Air New Episodes of ‘The Simpsons’ and Other Shows Next Month
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ New episodes of ″The Simpsons″ will finally begin Oct. 11, the Fox Broadcasting Co. announced Monday.
The cartoon family that moved to Thursdays this summer to battle NBC’s top- rated ″The Cosby Show,″ is currently in a second round of repeats.
Since moving to the 8 p.m. slot dominated by Cosby, ″The Simpsons″ have been trounced in the ratings.
Original episodes will see Homer Simpson getting a new, male secretary who makes a pass at his boss. Dad Simpson also will experiment with a hair-growing tonic.
Because of the complicated animation process, each installment of the series takes six months to complete.
New episodes of Fox’s ″In Living Color,″ a black-produced and directed comedy program, will begin Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. ″Married...With Children″ enters its fifth season the same night at 9.
