Fox Screening Every 'Simpsons' Episode Available for World Record Attempt

Posted Mon Feb 6, 2012 at 11:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

Entrants will have to beat last year's record of 86 hours, 6 minutes and 41 seconds.

It feels like 'The Simpsons' have been on forever. The show is sort of a 'Saturday Night Live' for a new generation. We remember when it was amazing and revolutionary and a lot of us jump on and off the bandwagon depending on whether the show's any good or not.

The folks over at Fox are celebrating the 500th episode of the show by hosting a marathon at the Hollywood and Highland complex in Los Angeles. Contestants will sit and watch 'The Simpsons' until they can't take any more, or fall asleep, which seems more likely.

The current record of over 86 hours was earned in 2010 at a Fox sponsored '24' marathon. To break that, contestants will have to watch the show until an episode or two into the 11th season. So just to the point where it started to get stale, or should we say Krusty? Nice timing.
