It's not as good as it used to be,.. but even the worst Simpson's episode is better than almost anything else that's on.
I find that shows from the last couple of seasons that I thought were stinkers at the time seem funnier to me when watching them in syndicated re-runs. I don't know if this is due to being able to catch some of the throwaway jokes and little details that I might have missed on the first viewing,.. or that I'm so otherwise starved for quality entertainment that I'm giving them far more credit than they deserve.
Something I discoved by accident: If you have closed-captioning on your TV turn it on when watching the show... sometimes the dialog is completely different, and sometimes funnier.
