The 12-day marathon of every episode of The Simpsons ever made (plus The Simpsons Movie) has done well for FXX, and it still has five days to go as of this writing, continuing through Sept. 1. FXX says that through its first six days, the marathon grew in viewership each day, and FXX has ranked as a Top 5 Basic Cable Network on each night. Tuesday night’s primetime portion (8-11pm) drove the network to a No. 1 rank among all basic cable networks in Adults 18-49 (1.07 million) and Adults 18-34 (764,000). It ranked No. 1 outright, inclusive of broadcast and cable, in Men 18-34 (477,000) on Tuesday night.
FXX has also announced its regular weekly Simpsons schedule once the marathon ends, beginning Sept. 2. The Simpsons will then move into its regular slot on Mondays from 6pm-midnight ET/PT; Tuesdays from 8pm-midnight ET/PT; Thursdays from 8pm-midnight ET/PT; Fridays from 6pm-midnight ET/PT; and Sundays from 4-8pm ET/PT. Special holiday-themed Simpsons marathons will air throughout the year.
