No. It's already done. They should just end the show itself, before it really starts to stink.
Anyone who dismisses this late area of The Simpsons out of hand is clearly not watching the show. Is the show as good as it was during the single digit seasons? Of course not. But it remains at least as good as anything else on network television.
But why is it not as good? In 1994 there was nothing like it on television. We are constantly reminded by how good it was because those first 200 episodes are running daily in syndication. We are constantly reliving the golden-aged nostalgia of Al Jean's first run as head writer. We cannot forget about the utter craziness of John Swartzwelder's scripts.
The Simpsons will end, Letterman will retire and the world will be less funny. Lets have laugh while we still can. Humor will be dead soon.
