Homer Outsmarts Jane Lynch on 'The Simpsons' (VIDEO)

Jane Lynch took off the red track pants last night to guest-star on 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX) as Homer's new assistant, the scheming Roz. It's rare to see Homer outsmart anyone, but after Rox stole his job at the nuclear power pant he managed to find her one weakness and exploit it to his advantage. It turns out that Roz just hates to be hugged, so who better to have her hug -- in public -- than Monty Burns? As Mr. Burns wraps his arms around Roz she starts to groan with disgust. Then, losing it altogether she pushes him away, wraps him into a little ball and kicks him into touch. Result? Roz is fired and Homer gets his job back. Plus, Roz even admits to a little grudging respect for Homer: "I underestimated you."

Bart Finds Alien Love in His Avatar on 'Simpsons Treehouse of Horror' (VIDEO)

This year, 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX) annual Halloween spook-tacular was filled with fresher than usual satire. 'Treehouse of Horror XXII' -- and doesn't that make you feel old -- opened with a nod to Aron Ralston and the film '127 Hours,' and proceeded to mock 'Dexter,' 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' and 'Avatar.' The 'Spider-Man' story was perhaps the most bizarre, as it featured a catatonic Homer Simpson ultimately fighting crime even though he couldn't move. But the accidents caused by that were a clear poke at the accident prone musical.

'The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror' offers ghoulish fun

It wouldn't be a Halloween without "The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror." And while the 22nd iteration of the series doesn't hold a candle to some of the great ones of the past - Homer in 3D, The Raven and The Shining - there were a couple of moments worthy of note.Perhaps the best part is in the second segment that's a send up of "Dexter." And who would be the least likely to be a serial killer who is out to do some good? Why it's Ned Flanders, of course. The opening sequence is outstanding and later in the sketch, there's an unexpected visitor we haven't seen in a while.The opening piece is a rather forgettable number. But the show closes strong for anyone who is a fan of "Avatar."One glaring oversight was the absence of Kang and Kodos. They worked in lookalikes, but we fans demand the real thing....
