My Thoughts on Ned-Liest Catch's poll

This is a little bit late, but I'd still like to take a moment to further discuss my thoughts on this week's episode The Ned-Liest Catch. While the episode itself wasn't as bad as it could (Should) have been, it was clear that this episode was nothing more than a gimmick for ratings. However, the ratings for this episode were very low (5.29 million, the all-time low was 4.996 million for The Great Simpsina). Anyways, what I want to say is that with the ending of "Now you decide America and we'll reveal the results next season" was a pathetic attempt at being relevant and trying to boost next years season premiere ratings. I have one thing to say in response to the poll; do NOT vote! I don't care if it's NO, do NOT give them attention, do NOT give this episode or series any attention over the summer and I highly encourage everyone to avoid next year's premiere. This show does not have a contract for a 24th season (As far as I know) and I feel that Al Jean and the staff will hope for good opening numbers to convince FOX to give them that 24th season and beyond. However, if we ignore this marketing stunt and desperate cry for attention, I believe we can help end this disgrace to the show and we'll be free of the modern stuff.

I currently stand on NO for the relationship, but I'm not going to let FOX think I give a rat's ass about their stupid little cliffhanger. I'm going to ignore this episode and the season premiere until it actually airs, I hope you can all do your part and NOT give this poll any attention and send a message to FOX that this has gone on long enough and it's time to end it.

Thank you for your time.


  1. I don't even think it's a vote, because when I checked it out everyone who had voted told me that it doesn't seem to record your vote, because your allowed to vote multiple times and leads you to a site where you can download desktop merchandise for whatever party you vote for.
    I might've voted, but after they told me this, I realized that it was all for the rating and at the premier they will probably make up their own statistics.

  2. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if that was the truth. They don't seem to the outside world when it comes to what they should do, they just seem to do whatever they want and say "Well we just spent our daily half-hour on this script, no need for proof-reading or editing, time to go home and get drunk"

    And really, who in their right mind would WANT that crap? I mean, what person in their right mind is thinking; "I approve of this relationship, and now I'll show all my friends that I want them to stay together by downloading this awesome picture for my Facebook account" I'm just saying.
