SEASON RIGHTS: 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 27
LISTINGS SOURCE: Digiguide

Sky1 are currently airing four episodes on weekdays at 4pm and from 6:30pm to 8pm. The former shifts to 5pm from Monday 24th. Thursdays usually feature two additional episodes, from 8pm to 9pm. There are usually four episodes on Sundays, from 6pm to 8pm; Saturdays are variable, see listings below.

We're back to a grab-bag assortment of episodes this week; Bart-themed shows dominate.

Sky have currently caught up with the US broadcasts of season 28, so there will most likely be a several-week interval in the run before the final three episodes of the season. ("Looking for Mr. Goodbart" was prerviously pencilled in for Sunday 23rd, despite not airing in the US until the following Sunday; as anticipated, that's now been removed from the schedule.) "A Father's Watch" gets its encore outing this Friday, the 21st; no word yet on "The Caper Chase"'s second showing.

Note that episodes from mid-season 20 onwards are now simulcast on Sky 1 HD in High Definition.

Latest UK DVDs: Season 17 is available now. (Let's hope the DVD releases don't end there..)

UK scheduling history: check out my June 2012 piece for Dead Homer Society, "English? Who Needs That?": The Simpsons in the United Kingdom, a 3000-word piece on the show's history, scheduling and ratings over here. (Also check out The Ann Arbor Review of Books, where I'm writing a regular column about British perception of American culture, "Imported Goods".)
