The Simpsons — famous for its weekly "couch gag" during the show's opening credits — got much more serious with it this week.
Banksy, a British artist known for graffiti projects that mix social commentary with street art, helped create the opening that aired Sunday. The artist's name was written throughout the usual scenes of the characters' various lives in Springfield.

Grab your toast, toilet paper and squirt guns and prepare to dance the "Time Warp." Just in time for Halloween, Glee's New Directions gang is staging The Rocky Horror Picture Show for the October 26 episode.
"I've loved Rocky Horror since I first saw it when I was 12," says Chris Colfer (Kurt). "There is no point to it except being crazy and having a good time." And boy, do they ever. The visionary behind the looks, which include Kurt as Riff Raff, Lea Michele's Rachel as Janet and Amber Riley's Mercedes as Frank-N-Furter, is costume designer Lou Eyrich.
"The Glee kids' take on Rocky Horror is a little more hip," says Eyrich. The outfits, with a price tag north of $30,000, were inspired by both the stage version and the 1975 film. All of the actors were "so excited to see what everyone was wearing when they came to the wardrobe trailer," Eyrich adds. No wonder!
