I don’t know if it’s my lowered expectations, or the fact that I’m still relieved the movie wasn’t terrible, but I just watched the 19th season premiere of The Simpsons and in my opinion it was hilarious.

There was a also a funny cameo from Lionel Richie that I think will be showing up on the front page of Youtube and Digg over the next view days.
