    ‘Simpsons’ To Launch On FXX With 12-Day Marathon

    ‘Simpsons’ To Launch On FXX With 12-Day Marathon; App Expected To Debut

    Cowabunga! To launch the first run of veteran animated series “The Simpsons” on cable in August, FXX intends to start things with a bang: A 12-day marathon of the series’ 552-episode run.

    “It will be the longest continuous marathon in the history of television,” said Jon Landgraf, chief executive of FX Networks, at an upfront presentation held in New York Wednesday.

    Apparently, the uninterrupted 12-days marathon, 48 episodes per day, will lead to a new episode on August 31, before labor's day, september 1st.

    Edit : No way FXX Canada will run such marathon, cancon requirements...

    I think FXX could do it if they "catch up" on Cancon in subsequent weeks. I think the real thing that will prevent FXX from doing it is the fact that MuchMusic has the cable rights to Simpsons episodes.

    Yeah, FXX Canada only gets original FXX programming, not syndicated programming the U.S. FXX acquires like The Simpsons
