The end of the Simpsons?

Could it be true?

"SIMPSONS creator Matt Groening has revealed he wants the hit show to end. Matt, 50, is finding it increasingly tough to think up new ideas for the cartoon family.

“The Simpsons’ success has been unbelievable. But the show gets harder and harder every year because we are trying to keep surprising the audience — and trying to surprise ourselves", says Groening.

Actors who do voices for Bart and co signed a four-year deal in May, doubling their salary to £147,000 an episode. That takes them up to series 19, in 2008.

Animator Matt hopes to do one more after that, to rival America's longest-running show Gunsmoke, a Western that ran for 20 series."

It would be a sad moment for television indeed! But, and don't lynch me for saying it, maybe the Simpsons have had their time? They're definately not as funny as they used to be.
