    Four hours isn't a marathon. That's how many hours I expect they may air The Simpsons in a typical day after the marathon. TNT has Bones on four hours a day. Today FXX has 2 hours of The Hughleys and 6.5 hours of X-Men movies.
    A four hour block of Simpsons would not be something to brag about.

    Chalk the bad math up to ''I wasn't thinking'' territory.

    They won't just air 2 days of episodes anyway. Again, bad math. Here's some math of if all 552 episodes aired continously:

    24 divided by 2 - 48 eps a day.
    48 + 48 + 48 + 48 + 48 + 48 + 48 + 48 + 48 + 48 + 48 + 48 =
    192 - 4
    384 - 8
    433 - 9
    481 - 10
    530 - 11
    552 - 12
    Don't know what they'll do with the remaining hours of Day 12.
    So... yeah. I guess they will air 552 episodes continously... or they'll air 4 hours (8 episodes worth) of episodes a day. I don't know.
    In my day we had something on each side of the equal sign.

    552 episodes times 30 minutes per episode divided 60 minutes per hour divided by 24 hours in a day equals 11.5 days.
    552 x 30 / 60 / 24 = 11.5

    Whereas:
    4 hours times 2 episodes per hour times 12 days equals 96 episodes.

    Does not compute.

    And technically, I think the results are in units of episode days.

    Stop by the Fun & Games Board.

    I don't care all that much about this show, anymore - but I have to ask.... Is there really a point to doing all of this?!

    Because they paid at least $750 Million for the airing rights and it gets FXX (which is still in its infancy as a network) a ton of publicity.
    What do you get when you put three friends in a recording booth once a week, screen old anime, and tell them to make sense of it?

    That's true. I'm not a fan of marathons (at all), but is there a better way for FXX to introduce The Simpsons to their network and draw any attention to FXX? I can't really think of one.

    Will these be the complete episodes or have syndication edits?
