Season 31 ... __LINK__

The thirty-first season of the animated television series The Simpsons premiered on Fox in the United States on September 29, 2019,[1] and ended on May 17, 2020. Al Jean continues as showrunner, a position he has held since the thirteenth season. Matt Selman also contributed as showrunner for the episodes "Go Big or Go Homer", "Livin La Pura Vida", "Thanksgiving of Horror", "The Miseducation of Lisa Simpson", "Bart the Bad Guy", "Highway to Well" and "The Hateful Eight-Year-Olds".

Season 31 ...

This season features the first scripts credited to writers Max Cohn and Elisabeth Kiernan Averick. Comedian and writer Pete Holmes also both wrote and guest-starred in the two-part "Warrin' Priests" episodes, making him the third freelance writer to do so after Ricky Gervais and Seth Rogen. While in "Warrin' Priests" Holmes plays the character of Bode, he had previously guest-starred in season 30 premiere "Bart's Not Dead" as a different character. The episode "The Incredible Lightness of Being a Baby" was delayed from the previous season, with the original intent to air it instead of "I'm Just a Girl Who Can't Say D'oh" on April 7, 2019. The episode was put on hold after the show's producers decided to make a short film related to the episode involving Maggie and another baby named Hudson titled Playdate with Destiny as well. The short film premiered on February 29, 2020, attached to advanced screenings of the Disney/Pixar release Onward with "The Incredible Lightness of Being a Baby" serving as a sequel to it.[25]

Parts of this season were produced and aired during the COVID-19 pandemic, which delayed or canceled the production of many television productions, but as an animated production, this took less of a toll on the show than most live-action ones. Executive producer James L. Brooks encouraged the staff to begin working from their homes in early March 2020, before California's stay-at-home order was declared. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in late March 2020, Al Jean stated, "Production hasn't skipped a day or lost a beat. We intend to do the 22 shows we were contracted to do... There's been no change in how we do things."[28]

The season features guest appearances from John Mulaney, Michael Rapaport, Jason Momoa, Bob Odenkirk, Jane Goodall, Asia Kate Dillon, Fortune Feimster, Scott Bakula, Steve Ballmer, Zach Woods, Beanie Feldstein, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Jim Parsons, Taran Killam, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Billy Porter, Kevin Smith, Joey King, Lilly Singh and Cate Blanchett. Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker has a cameo in a referential segment of "Thanksgiving of Horror" while the episode "Bart the Bad Guy" features Marvel Cinematic Universe producers Kevin Feige and the Russo Brothers in parody roles, along with Maria Hill actress Cobie Smulders. "The Hateful Eight-Year-Olds" features Riverdale stars Camila Mendes, Madelaine Petsch and Lili Reinhart playing three girls who bully Lisa.

It was during the run of this season that longtime voice actor Hank Azaria announced that he was officially stepping down from voicing Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, a character he had played since the episode "The Telltale Head" from the first season. The character and Azaria's portrayal of him had come under scrutiny since the release of Hari Kondabolu's 2017 documentary The Problem with Apu. Apu's portrayal came under scrutiny again when the Simpsons staff referenced the criticism as being too politically correct in the season 29 episode "No Good Read Goes Unpunished" which resulted in backlash from some people concerned about the issue who felt that the response was immature. Azaria said that it was a mutual decision made between himself and the senior staff, stating, "all we know there is I won't be doing the voice anymore unless there's some way to transition it or something."[58]

The thirty-first season of Dancing with the Stars premiered on Disney+ on September 19, 2022,[1][2] and concluded on November 21, 2022.[3] This season marked the first live competition show to air on the streaming platform.[4] Tyra Banks returned as host, while season 19 champion Alfonso Ribeiro joined as co-host.

On August 25, 2022, it was reported that Charli D'Amelio and her mother Heidi D'Amelio would be competing as celebrity participants.[6] Soon after, Joseph Baena, Wayne Brady, Daniel Durant,[7][8] Jordin Sparks,[9] Gabby Windey,[10] and Trevor Donovan[11] were all reported to be celebrity participants. Charli and Heidi D'Amelio were officially announced as part of the season's cast on September 7,[12] with the full roster of celebrity participants and their partnerships officially revealed on Good Morning America the following day.[13][14][15] With 16 couples participating, this season is tied with season nine for the largest cast in the show's history.[16]

On July 14, 2022, it was announced that Tyra Banks would return as host, with Len Goodman, Derek Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli returning as judges. Additionally, it was announced that season nineteen champion Alfonso Ribeiro would be joining the show alongside Banks as co-host.[13][39] In May 2022, judge Tonioli revealed that he would be quitting British series Strictly Come Dancing. A judge since Strictly's first season in 2004, he cited an 'unsustainable' situation (due to traveling back-and-forth for each show) as his reason for leaving.[40][41] On October 24, Michael Bublé served as a guest judge.[42]

This is also the last season to have white actors voice non-white characters as it was later announced that those characters would not be voiced by those actors anymore in June 2020 as a result of George Floyd protests, with Hank Azaria stepping away from the Apu character in January, primarily because of the stereotypes and bias it perpetuated. Other characters (like Kumiko) also got new voice actors.

On February 6, 2019, it was announced that The Simpsons had been renewed for Season 31 and Season 32.[2] Al Jean confirmed on his Twitter that there would be the 30th Treehouse of Horror episode of The Simpsons, which would be the 666th episode of the show.[3] This was their first full season after The Walt Disney Company's acquisition of 21st Century Fox since March 20, 2019.

The entire 12-episode season of TUF 31 will be available exclusively on ESPN, with one episode dropping each Tuesday beginning May 30 at 10pm ET/7pm PT. Episodes will be available to stream on demand on ESPN+ at 11 p.m. ET, following the conclusion of their network debut. In addition, UFC fans can re-watch all 30 previous seasons of TUF on ESPN+.

Chandler (23-8, fighting out of Nashville, Tenn. ) is a favorite amongst fight fans for his dynamic fighting style and captivating personality. No stranger to a highlight reel finish, Chandler stunned fans with spectacular stoppages over Dan Hooker and Tony Ferguson. He now plans on adding a successful TUF coaching season to his resume on the way to defeating McGregor.

Throughout the evening, the finalists each performed twice, taking the stage for a redemption dance and a freestyle. In the redemption round, the contestants had a second chance at either a ballroom or Latin style routine that they attempted earlier in the season, in the hopes of getting a better score than they did the first time around.

The California native has participated in 26 seasons of DWTS, appearing on the show for the first time in 2005. She has won the mirrorball twice: with Drew Lachey in 2005 and with Emmitt Smith in 2006.

Before the start of the season, featured player Rob Riggle was let go from the show in order to make way for new cast members. Finesse Mitchell and Kenan Thompson were both promoted to repertory status, while Jason Sudeikis remained as a featured player.

Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph would both miss many episodes this season due to being on maternity leave. Fey missed the first 2 episodes, while Rudolph appeared in the season premiere and then missed the next ten episodes. Rudolph would then miss another two episodes for undisclosed reasons. She returned to SNL for the February 4, 2006 episode, hosted by Steve Martin. Other cast members who missed episodes this season would be Darrell Hammond, Chris Parnell and Horatio Sanz.

This would be the final season for longtime cast members: Fey, Rachel Dratch, Finesse Mitchell, Chris Parnell, Horatio Sanz, as well as the final season for longtime director Beth McCarthy-Miller, who left at the end of the season because she felt like she couldn't bring the show into HD properly. Fey and Dratch both departed the cast at the end of the season to work on Fey's new sitcom 30 Rock, while Mitchell, Parnell and Sanz were all let go due to budget cuts.

This season is notable for the people who hosted the show. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, an SNL cast member from 1982 to 1985 under Dick Ebersol, became the first former female cast member to come back and host the show (and also the third cast member from Seinfeld to host). Gilda Radner was originally supposed to host in 1988, but could not due to the Writers Guild of America strike and then Radner's death the following year. This season is also known for the return of such frequent hosts as Alec Baldwin (who last hosted in season 29 with musical guest Missy Elliott in 2003), Tom Hanks (who last hosted the first episode of season 22 with musical guest Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in 1996), and Steve Martin (who last hosted the first episode of season 20 with musical guest Eric Clapton in 1994).

The entire twelve episode season of The Ultimate Fighter 31 will air exclusively on ESPN, with one episode out each Tuesday beginning May 30 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.
