Bart and Crew to Get Their 500K


That was quick.


After reporting yesterday that salary disputes were delaying production on the 20th season of The Simpsons, it seems as though an agreement has already been reached.


"Bart", "Lisa" and all of the major Simpsons characters will indeed be getting the $500,000 an episode that they have requested.


Update: Seems like the Telegraph was reporting things prematurely. The actors have come to a deal, but it is for more around $400,000 an episode, according to The Huffington Post.

I'm British but I am disgraced, David Beckham is probably the best right mid-field soccer player, and Friends was the best show around when it was going but still everyone love it, the actiong isn't poor, maybe to you as you just suck want all action, Simpson has came a long way as well but it does get boring sometimes and then sometimes its great, but most impressive part that the writers managed to keep the show going and going, if I had to choose out of UK or USA, I would choose USA as they have everything.

EVERYONE JUST CALM DOWNThis is about the Simpsons not David Beckham and his wifeAs this is a cartoon aimed at children CHILDREN will come on here SO STOP THE SWEARING!! Everyone has different opinions so if you don't like Friends you don't like Friends there is no need to be nasty to somebody who doesn't like it

WOW that's a heap load of money for every episode I suppose it's alright for some i know some people who will be living the high life
