|September 21 DOUBLE FEATURE|
|7:30 What to Expect When Bart's Expecting (SABF14)|
Bart's attempt to use a voodoo doll on his art teacher gets her pregnant, and soon Bart is wanted by couples trying
to have a baby - including Fat Tony, who wants to get his filly impregnated by a champion horse he "borrowed"
Cities in the Eastern and Central time zones with a 4:05 (Eastern) NFL game on Fox may get this episode joined in progress
|8:00 Pay Pal (SABF15)|
|After Homer ruins a game night at the new neighbors' home, Marge decides they're better off not having friends, but she's not about to let Lisa share the same fate|
|September 28 DOUBLE FEATURE (sort of)|
|8:00 26th SEASON PREMIERE Clown in the Dumps (SABF20)|
Krusty retires when he is offended by a televised roast of him; a character "for whom the actor won an Emmy" dies
("coincidentally," Jackie Mason won an Emmy in 1992 for voicing Krusty's father, Rabbi Krustofski)
Note this is a Fox NFL doubleheader day, so there is a (slim) chance the episode will be delayed by a few minutes (but if they play like they did on 9/7, when every game ended by 7:30 Eastern, it shouldn't be a problem)
|At 9:00, Fox will air the Family Guy/Simpsons one-hour crossover, but "officially" this is a Family Guy episode|
|October 5 DOUBLE FEATURE|
|7:00 The Man Who Grew Too Much (SABF07)|
Lisa discovers a cultural bond with the new head of a chemical engineering company - Sideshow Bob;
Marge tries teaching safe sex to a church group
Cities in the Eastern and Central time zones with a 4:05 (Eastern) NFL game on Fox will get this episode joined in progress, delayed, or pre-empted
|8:00 The Wreck of the Relationship (SABF17)|
|Homer and Bart try to patch up their differences on a "Relation Ship" cruise; meanwhile, Marge takes over Homer's fantasy football team|
The Green Box is BACK!The NFL has announced its 2014 regular season schedule, so here are the Fox NFL doubleheader days for 2014. Remember that on a Fox doubleheader day, when a 4:25 Eastern game ends, Fox switches to one of its games still in progress until all Fox games that Sunday end. (Last year, even though the last game on Week 17 ended at around 7:45, the postgame show still managed to talk its way past 8:00.)
Fox's remaining national NFL doubleheader days for 2014:
9/28 (season premiere)
11/9 (Simpsons/Futurama crossover)
Notice that the number of 4:25 Eastern games Fox has each week is not listed. This is because of a couple of new scheduling rules that make it harder to determine in advance how many games Fox will have on a particular Sunday. First, "flexible scheduling," where the scheduled Sunday night game can be changed, and games moved between the 1:00 and 4:05/4:25 start times, now begins on Week 5; second, games that would normally be on Fox (i.e. games where the visiting team is an NFC team) can be moved to CBS, and vice versa.
Major League Baseball has confirmed that the only potential pre-emption for baseball is if World Series Game 5 is necessary on October 29
Starting on August 21, 2014, FXX started broadcasting repeats of the show,
starting with a 24-hour-a-day marathon of every episode up to that point in
original Fox airing order, from "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire" to
"The Yellow Badge of Cowardge."|
All times listed are Eastern for the "eastern FXX feed" and Pacific for the "western FXX feed"; if you live out west, do not assume you have the western feed (AT&T U-Verse, for example, has the eastern feed, so episodes on U-Verse air three hours earlier than listed in the Pacific time zone)
