 Latest Update
 November 14th 2014

Welcome to the 14th November update. Full schedules through to early December are available below, for Channel 4, RTÉ2 and Sky One, including C4's S22 premiere run. I'm busy on Friday 21st, so next update will probably be Monday 24th November; e-mail me at if you need to contact me in the meantime.


 Channel 4: Schedule Status & Listings
 14th November to 5th December 2014

SEASON RIGHTS: 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21

C4 are currently airing season 21 in the evergreen 6pm weekdays slot.

Following that, season 22 finally gets its C4 premiere, in that same slot, from Tue 18 Nov. Excellent news!

The Saturday lunchtime and Sunday afternoon slots are a tad confusing at the moment. Season 7 dominates them, but there's no clear rhyme or reason to what's being aired. (There's also a 1am broadcast of "Who Shot Mr Burns? Part 2" coming up on the night of Sun 23rd Nov..) See below for full details.

Note that all episodes that air on Channel 4 are simulcast on Channel 4 HD and can be viewed one hour later on their timeshift service, Channel 4 +1. (Same goes for the movie on Film4 and Film4 HD).

 Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD: Schedule Status & Complete Listings
 14th November to 12th December 2014

SEASON RIGHTS: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, 22, 23, 24

Currently on Sky1, most weekdays are home to an episode at 5pm and a triple bill from 6:30pm. There's also a 6pm double bill on Saturdays, and Sundays see an episode at 4pm and a triple bill from 5pm (chages to a quadruple bill from 4:30pm on Sun 30 Nov).

Sky1's relatively organised scheduling continues, with most seasons playing through in some sort of order. Seasons 4, 5, 6, 12, 18 and 24 continue to comprise the majority of the schedule through the coming weeks. It's leading to some crossing over and doubling up, though, and seasons 5 and 12 in particular risk serious overplay! See below for full details.

As Christmas approaches, preliminary schedules are being released earlier and earlier; we should only be a couple of weeks away from a first look at the festive plans.

New episodes: Season 26 is currently airing! And it continues on a weekly basis:

  • "Super Franchise Me" airs on Sunday 16th November at 6pm (encore Friday 21st Nov, 7:30pm).
  • "Treehouse of Horror XXV" airs on Sunday 23rd November at 6pm (encore Friday 28th Nov, 7:30pm).
  • "Simpsorama" airs on Sunday 30th November at 6pm (encore Friday 5th Dec, 7:30pm).
  • "Opposites A-frack" airs on Sunday 7th December at 6pm (encore Friday 12th Dec, 7:30pm).

Note that new episodes, and repeats of episodes from mid-season 20 onwards, are now simulcast on Sky 1 HD, in High Definition.

 Additional Notes and Latest UK DVDs
 Updated October 2014

Latest UK DVDs: I still haven't got around to that S16 review (to my shame!), but Season 17 is due out here on December 1st.

UK scheduling history: check out my June 2012 piece for Dead Homer Society, "English? Who Needs That?": The Simpsons in the United Kingdom, a 3000-word piece on the show's history, scheduling and ratings over here. (Also check out The Ann Arbor Review of Books, where I'm writing a regular column about British perception of American culture, "Imported Goods".)

Credit where credit's due: Many thanks to David McCormick, creator of this page and original maintainer; Brian Petersen and Adam Wolf, who contributed HTML; and Phinbart, Jared Morris, Robert Burroughs, Matt Johnson, Danny M and Ben Clifford for helping out around these parts - much appreciated! Thanks also to the members of the No Homers Club who regularly contribute to the UK scheduling discussing thread, which is very closely linked with this page (I post as Wezzo there).

Contact: Being completely accurate is great, but unfortunately, sometimes unattainable. Changes can occur that are beyond my control; if you spot any such late amendments, note any errors, or have any suggestions or queries regarding the listings, please contact me - details here, e-mail is your best bet for a speedy answer.

Syndication of listings: If you wish to use these listings on your site (with credit, please!), drop me a line.
