This area provides a full scope of broadcast scheduling for The Simpsons in the United States. Show times are provided for network airings (minus one hour for central and mountain zones).

For a comprehensive list of American & Canadian stations showing episodes in syndication, consult the Syndication Stations & Times list.

Because national syndication scheduling is no longer offered, viewers should consult local listings via Zap2it, Yahoo or TV Guide for broadcast info.

You are cordially invited to the wedding of Jeff "Comic Book Guy" Albertson and Kumiko Nakamura, a Japanese woman working on an autobiographical manga comic...provided Kumiko's father doesn't drag her back to Japan first

Fox is airing the Teen Choice Awards at 8:00 Eastern

Because of Fox's coverage of an NFL pre-season game at 8:00 Eastern, the 8/17 episode will air at 7:30 Eastern, 6:30 Central, and 30 minutes after the game coverage ends in the Mountain and Pacific time zones (i.e. approximately 9:45 Mountain and 8:45 Pacific)

The Green Box is BACK!

The NFL has announced its 2014 regular season schedule, so here are the Fox NFL doubleheader days for 2014. Remember that on a Fox doubleheader day, when a 4:25 Eastern game ends, Fox switches to one of its games still in progress until all Fox games that Sunday end. (Last year, even though the last game on Week 17 ended at around 7:45, the postgame show still managed to talk its way past 8:00.)

Fox's national NFL doubleheader days for 2014:

Notice that the number of 4:25 Eastern games Fox has each week is not listed. This is because of a couple of new scheduling rules that make it harder to determine in advance how many games Fox will have on a particular Sunday. First, "flexible scheduling," where the scheduled Sunday night game can be changed, and games moved between the 1:00 and 4:05/4:25 start times, now begins on Week 5; second, games that would normally be on Fox (i.e. games where the visiting team is an NFC team) can be moved to CBS, and vice versa.

Also note that the current plan is for the only baseball pre-emption to be World Series Game 4 on 10/26 (the two league championship series are scheduled to be on TBS and Fox Sports 1)


Twentieth Television, the United States syndication distributor of The Simpsons, terminated its "barter" scheduling of the series in 1999. Accordingly, stations showing the series in syndication now possess full control over local scheduling, making national listings a thing of the past.

Regrettably, we cannot provide listings for the hundreds of stations now independently programming the syndicated airings in their local markets. Fans should instead refer to online television listings services such as Zap2it, Yahoo or TV Guide for local information. For a handy list of syndication stations in the United States and Canada, also see Ben Tegarden's Syndication Stations and Times reference guide.


Scheduling information for international broadcasters is available from the following web sites. If you know of any international scheduling data on the internet that has been overlooked here, send e-mail.
Please send e-mail only if you know of a web page that has the actual scheduling information for episodes. Do not simply include the address of the network's home page.
This is not intended to be a list of every network in the world that shows The Simpsons - just a list of the sites that list their upcoming episodes.
