RTÉ2 are currently airing season 15 at 6pm weekdays, with season 14 following from 31st July (and no episodes at all on 28/29 July).

Exact episode/slot details remain inconsistent, so I've not supplied detailed info, as it'll probably be incorrect. Many thanks to Phinbart for assistance.

 Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD: Schedule Status & Complete Listings
 25th July to 22nd August 2014


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

Currently on Sky1, most weekdays are home to an episode at 5pm and a triple bill from 6:30pm. Most Saturdays see a few scattered episodes, and there's usually a Sunday evening five-pack from 5:30pm to 8pm. There's also currently a weekday 2pm double-bill, for the summer holiday.

Sky1's relatively organised scheduling continues. Seasons 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 17, 18, 23 and 24 comprise the majority of the schedule, and most are currently getting structured, airdate-order runthroughs, to a greater or lesser extent. Most notable are the (upcoming in some cases) weeknight broadcasts of S4, S5, S11 and S23, and the weekday 2pm double-bill currently being filled out with season 12, easily Sky's most-broadcast run of recent months.

While the order is appreciated, they're also tending to over-do it on certain episodes and episode blocks, as certain runs are repeated multiple times in close succession in different timeslots. Take "A Totally Fun Thing that Bart Will Never Do Again" - hope you like it, as it's being shown five (5) times in the next four weeks! See the full details below for slots and times.

New episodes: The S25 run is back on track, with erratically scheduled episodes on both Saturdays and Sundays in August - by 17th August just two episodes will remain:

  • "Brick Like Me", the Lego episode, airs on Saturday 9th August at 7:30pm (repeat: Thurs 14th, 6:30pm).
  • "Luca$" airs on Sunday 10th August at 7:30pm (no repeat scheduled yet).
  • "Days of Future Future" airs on Saturday 16th August at 5:30pm (no repeat scheduled yet).
  • "What to Expect When Bart's Expecting" airs on Sunday 17th August at 7:30pm (no repeat scheduled yet).

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 May 2014

Latest UK DVDs: Season 16 is out now; Frink adorns the front cover this time around. Order it now, and look out for my review of the season on the News page eventually (I promise!). Season 15 is, of course, still available to buy on DVD; my review is now available here.

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.
