Homer gets some stiff competition from guest star Baldwin in the season premiere episode "Bonfire of the Manatees," Sunday, Sept. 11 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT). Marge, outraged after discovering Homer allowed Fat Tony (Mantegna, reprising his role as Springfield's infamous mob boss) to shoot an a "gentlemen's" film in their living room in compensation for his football gambling debt, flees, leaving Homer with the kids. While on her journey of self-discovery, Marge befriends Caleb Thorn (guest-voice Baldwin), an attractive marine biologist on a quest to save not only the endangered manatee, but Marge from a husband who doesn't seem to appreciate her.

Former athletes Terry Bradshaw and Dennis Rodman, playing themselves, stir up tricks and treats in the annual "ghoultide" Halloween trilogy, "The Simpsons' Tree House of Horror XVI," Sunday, Nov. 6.

Other upcoming guest voices include Ricky Gervais, Lily Tomlin, William H. Macy, Michael York, boxer Joe Frazier, Kelsey Grammer returning as Sideshow Bob and � to the delight of Patty and Selma � Richard Dean Anderson. Later in the season, McDormand, Rob Reiner and famed Yankee pitcher Randy Johnson turn up to throw a curve ball on THE SIMPSONS.

The longest-running animated primetime series in history and the longest-running comedy currently on television, THE SIMPSONS is also a cultural institution. Now in its 17th season, THE SIMPSONS has been critically praised and bestowed with numerous honors, including a Peabody Award, 21 Emmy Awards, 21 Annie Awards, three Genesis Awards, eight International Monitor Awards and five Environmental Media Awards. THE SIMPSONS also celebrated an unprecedented 350 episodes in May 2005.

THE SIMPSONS is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening, and Al Jean are the executive producers. Film Roman is the animation house.
