The Simpsons is the longest-running primetime scripted series in the history of television. We didn’t qualify it to that extent. Other categories of shows, like “60 Minutes,” have been around longer.
Rob Stennett pronounced Matt Groening’s last name “groaning.” It’s actually pronounced “graining.” He doesn’t feel too bad about this because it’s a common mistake.
Matthew Paul Turner referred to the book/movie “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Killer.” It’s actually Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. He feels no remorse whatsoever for this error.
In discussing Community parodies, Jason mentioned something called “Breakfast with Andre.” He was probably thinking of the film My Dinner with Andre. Or maybe Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Mostly he was trying to appear smart and bungled it.
