    Check your tv listings because apparently, now we will be able to see the great New York WTC episode of the Simpsons back in Syndication. I find this great news although it hasent aired in my area but it will be on in D.C on Monday at 6 on fox 5.

    Ryan, if this is true, you just made my day!!
    I love this episode and I was thinking it would be a shame for it not to be shown again.

    This may not be true in some areas but in my area's tv guide it says for Monday at 6:00 on fox 5 "TYhe clan visits New York." Now the only way this could be a different episode is if they made 2 episodes about them going to New York which I highly doubt they did.

    I actually saw this episode on local Pittsburgh syndication about three weeks ago. [​IMG]
    I was going to post the good news but ended up forgetting about it.
    I would say this easily ranks among the very best episodes that they've ever done.

    Was this episode ever banned? I saw it in syndication around the end of February.

    The episode was not banned officially but some stations did not want to air it.

    "What do you have to drink?"
    "I have Mountain Dew, and crab juice."
    "Yecch! I'll take the crab juice."

    It never was banned. Typical internet hysteria. It went from "I wonder if they'll ever show it again?" to "it's been banned and we'll never see it again!" All it ever really involved was Fox telling local stations to basically do whatever they wanted and use their best judgment.

    I also forgot to post about it, but I've seen this episode twice since the end of January. Maybe I'm not remembering correctly (or it could have been part of the internet hysteria), but I thought Fox had actually said they'd be putting a moratorium on the show.
