Valerie Cherish is forever seeking the most flattering light — from the cameras of the hapless reality-TV crew that surround her, from the two-faced Hollywood cronies who mock her, from life itself — and the tragic comedy of HBO's The Comeback, making its own most-welcome comeback (Sunday, 10/9c) after nearly a decade off the air, is that she so rarely finds it...
Futurama lives! For one night at least. The long-running sci-fi cartoon spoof, which signed off last year, is making a time-traveling comeback on The Simpsons (Sunday, Nov. 9 at 8/7c on Fox). Despite the fact the shows are set 1,000 years apart, the crossover makes sense, given that both series were created by Matt Groening and share a similar animation style. "At the table read, I said, "Let's celebrate this joyous reunion between Matt Groening's left and right brains,'" says Simpsons executive producer Al Jean. "And I really think that's what it is."

Some milestones can't help but make a longtime TV viewer feel a bit long in the tooth. Such is the case this Sunday, as Fox's The Simpsons marks a full quarter-century of spooky satire with its 25th annual "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween trilogy (8/7c), which strikes a nostalgic chord from its opening fanfare, echoing the classic (and still-missed) theme from Johnny Carson's Tonight Show — with a macabre twist, naturally.

Amid slumping ratings, Fox is pulling its experimental reality show Utopia from Tuesdaynights. Utopia will continue to air on Fridays at 8/7c.

It was a big night for The Simpsons, which featured both a major death and a buzzed about opening couch gag.
The Season 26 premiere kicked off with Homer in front of the TV furiously tapping the remote before the date scrolled to the past and then future and he turned into a floating tentacle head. Bart and Lisa, both of whom also transformed into bizarre shapes, then appeared on screen as a robot-sounding Lisa yelled, "I am Simpson" followed by Bart adding, "Don't have cow man."

Which character died on The Simpsons premiere?
Turns out, the opening was hand-drawn and animated by Oscar nominee and Indie filmmaker Don Hertzfeldt. Apparently, Hertzfeldt is a huge fan of the series:
