- Not counting its two-and-a-half years on the "Tracey Ullman Show," "The Simpsons" has been on TV for more than two-thirds of my life.
- Including its two-and-a-half years on the "Tracey Ullman Show," on April 19, "The Simpsons" will be in its 21st year, meaning it will have been on TV for fully three-fourths of my life. (Well, not quite, since on April 19 I will actually be 28 years, 7 months and 2 days old... But I am not about to do the math on that one. Suffice it to say, sometime in the coming months, "The Simpsons" will be exactly 3/4 as old as me.)
- "The Simpsons" made its "Tracey Ullman" debut on the day my baby brother turned 1 year and 11 days old. My baby brother turned 22 last week.
- In its early days, "The Simpsons" was scheduled opposite "The Cosby Show" in order to help FOX move up in the ratings. "The Cosby Show" - which is now airing reruns on Nick At Nite. Nick At Nite - that channel that airs reruns of CLASSIC, OLD-TIMEY shows.
