‘The Simpsons’: Homer Goes Live (WATCH)

Which feed was better -- East or West?

Homer Simpson Goes Live In Special Episode

Homer Simpson was working without a net last night.

The final three minutes of THE SIMPSONS was broadcast “live” on Fox — with a seven second delay, of course.

Voice actor Dan Castellanetta took calls from a small group of lucky fans at the end of both the East Coast and West Coast feeds, boldly declaring in the each segment that “THE SIMPSONS will never end.”

“It only took us 27 years to do what they could do in 1954,” Lisa Simpson (Yeardly Smith) said at the start of the segment.

Viewer questions included whether the animated TV dad prefers New York thin crust pizza or Chicago deep dish and what kind of car he drives.

During the west coast feed, Homer was predictably asked about the upcoming presidential election and whether would leave Springfield and move to Canada if Trump is elected.

“There are a lot of people who want me to move out of Springfield already,” he said, “but I don’t think Canada would welcome me. That’s why I’m for Bernie Sanders. I love his chicken, but out of respect, we should refer to him as The Colonel.”

During the season finale episode, titled “Simprovised”, Homer gains back his public speaking confidence by taking an improv comedy class.
