The Yellow Family still has it.

FXX scored solid ratings in primetime Thursday with its “The Simpsons” marathon, more than tripling the network’s usual audience and contributing to the nascent channel’s most-watched day ever.

According to Nielsen estimates, the six half-hours of “The Simpsons” averaged a 0.49 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.01 million viewers overall. The demo score was good enough for a fifth-place primetime finish for FXX — ahead of parent network FX as well as cable biggies including TNT and USA. ...

On a total-day basis, Thursday crushed FXX records, soaring 618% above its prior average in adults 18-49 (402,000 vs. 56,000) and 524% higher in total viewers (624,000 vs. 100,000).

All 552 “Simpsons” episodes will be airing in chronological order on FXX, which started the marathon earlier Thursday with the pilot episode from December 1989. ...

Congratulations to the hard-working crew over at Film Roman who helped Fox/News Corp. to earn even more money from its 12 billion dollar franchise. They might be getting a slice of the layer cake for their efforts, but at least they have bragging rights.

What a shame they didn't show them unedited or in the case of the first 8 seasons, in their correct aspect ratio. They are also electronically sped up to cram in more commercials. fxx sucks.
