For example, beginning Monday, November 9 and continuing through Sunday, Nov. 15, fans can watch FOX to uncover «Simpsons» tributes and clues featured in primetime programming (such as «Lie To Me,» «So You Think You Can Dance,» «House,» and «‘Til Death.») and in promos.

Viewers who spot the clues will then be able to log on to for an opportunity to win daily prizes and to enter to win an ultimate grand prize! I’ve always had my Dish Network DVR set to record «The Simpsons» for as longas I’ve had it. I’ve watched since the beginning and Sunday nights just wouldn’t be the same without my favorite yellow family. In a way, it’s weirdly reliable because it’ always there. The show has definitely had its ups and downs (Seasons 3-9 were probably my favorite), but in the end,  I can always rely on Homer and his family to put a smile on my face.
