This isn’t exactly great news for the famous Yellow Family. The Daily Beast reports:

Difficult bargaining is nothing new for the show, which was created by James L. Brooks and Matt Groening. Fox studio execs have occasionally threatened to replace uncooperative cast members with sound-alike actors. But for the first time in nearly a quarter century of haggling, the executives have insisted that if the cast doesn’t accept a draconian 45 percent pay cut, The Simpsons will die an abrupt death as a first-run series.

WOW, and just after Lavalle posted that nice “John K Simpsons Couch Gag”. Well, the show has been kind of getting stale the last few years so maybe it’s time to end it anyway. Hopefully we’ll get to at least see another movie to send the season off with a bang!

UPDATE: Fox renews ‘The Simpsons’ for 24th, 25th seasons (Fri, Oct 7 2011)
