The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) "The Simpsons" will keep the satire coming for at least two more seasons.

Fox said Monday it has renewed the animated series for its 27th and 28th seasons, which will carry it to a total of 625 episodes.

The tale of Springfield and the Simpson family is TV's longest-running scripted nighttime series.

"The Simpsons" cast includes Dan Castellaneta as dad Homer with his trademark "d'oh!" and Julie Kavner as mom Marge.

The network's announcement included a boast from Homer that his doughnut addiction helped him outlast David Letterman, Jon Stewart and Dr. McDreamy from "Grey's Anatomy."

The award-winning comedy has proved a money machine, spawning merchandise, a big-screen movie, video games and a Universal Studios Ride.
