Season 20 Releasing on January 12th

Per TVShowsOnDVD.com Season 20 won’t be here in time for Xmas.  Instead, in what is sure to be a promotional shit storm that you won’t be able to escape, they’re releasing it two days before the big 20th anniversary special on January 14th.  Which I just noticed is a Thursday, so steel yourselves for that cloyingly enthusiastic FOX announcer to say something like “Get ready for The Simpsons triumphant return to Thursday!”

FOX is also putting the squeeze on Zombie Simpson fanboys to buy this things the day it comes out.  From the TVShowsOnDVD.com:

In the past, season set DVD releases of The Simpsons are always chock-full of bonus material, including commentaries and featurettes and other items, including hidden gems.  However, this time the only extra supplement that Fox is mentioning – at least so far – is the Featurette "The 20th Anniversary Special Sneak Peek by Morgan Spurlock".

They’re putting a “Sneak Peek” of Spurlock’s special on a home video package that comes out two days before the special is broadcast.  Presumably the actual special will either be part of the Season 21 release or else be given its own stand alone package.
