Classic Christmas TV episodes: ‘Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire’

Show: "The Simpsons" (Season 1, episode 1)

Airdate: Dec. 17, 1989


Happy 20th anniversary to the still-funny, still-important 'Simpsons'

Last week, "The Simpsons" was the clear winner in the laugh tally against "The Cleveland Show" and "Family Guy." I can't say that every week, but I can say it often enough to make a case that "The Simpsons" still has plenty of laughs left in the tank.
