    With that in mind, it only seems fitting that “The Simpsons” draws upon both principles to dramatize its act of taking down “Gunsmoke” as the new sheriff of television. On Sunday night, “The Simpsons” will pass the classic midcentury western by airing show No. 636 — the most scripted episodes broadcast by any prime-time series in TV history.

    I wonder how much longer they can keep it going? Anytime I watch newer episodes it mostly disappoints.

    Now that they have the record, I wonder if they'll end it after the next season, which will be S30. Would be a good number to go out on
