Channel Ten Dumps The Simpsons After 25 Year Run

Channel Ten Dumps The Simpsons After 25 Year Run”

Ten will lose a strong line-up of US TV shows from its schedule after failed negotiations with studio giant 21st Century Fox.

It's not the only Fox-based program set to leave the network, with Network Ten reportedly failing to reach a deal on other favourites including Malcolm in the Middle and Modern Family.

The first series proved to be massively popular and actor Sterling K. Brown won an Emmy for his role just last month. The Simpsons aired on Ten for over 25 years while Modern Family has always aired on the network.

It is understood Fox was unhappy with the amount Ten, which is now in administration, offered to pay for its programs.

American broadcasting company CBS has gained credit approval to take over at Ten, but the agreement has not yet been finalised. It is unsure if any rival networks in Australia have made a bid for the show. "We might want to buy one of their shows but our focus is very much on local content", the spokeswoman said.

A spokesperson for Ten wouldn't comment on the fallout but said: "Fox content is not playing on Network Ten at this stage".

New seasons of This Is Us, Modern Family and The Simpsons are airing in the US now with Ten unable to run the latest episodes as negotiations were still ongoing.
