Worst Seasons of The Simpsons

The Top Ten Worst Seasons of The Simpsons

1 Season 24

So 2 people hate this season because Lisa Goes Gaga was in it when it was the finale to season 23. Idiots. - 445956

A complete snore fest. Every episode from this season was by far the worst, especially the Lady Gaga episode. I can't believe the Simpsons was renewed for another season after this shipwreck. Hopefully, Season 25 won't be so bad.

Good lord this season had some of the worst, as well as THE worst episode in Lisa Goes Gaga

The Simpsons seasons has ages because of its long life: golden age, silver age, Bronze Age, and the ordinary age in where it can be compared to family guy and American dad. This season IS the ordinary age. the Bronze Age is seasons 23, 25, 22, and 21

2 Season 7

Why is this on here, let alone second place?! It's an excellent season. - KalloFox34

This season was probably the best, if not for season 6 and season 4! It had extremely memorable episodes like when Bart sells his soul, when George Bush moved into the neighborhood, and when Krusty gets audited by the IRS.

Why is this on top and there are no comments?

Now this is not True. Other than King Size-Homer and Marge Not be Proud, but, there were memorable episodes such as Radioactive Man, Homer the Smithers, and Summer of 4ft.2. - Sboy727

3 Season 1

The only reason this was bad was because they hadn't confirmed a general plot yet! Give them a chance! You can't magic genius in a matter of seconds!

I find this so unfair, I enjoyed the analogy's and metaphor's that were in Season 1. "Some Enchanted Evening", "Homer's Night Out" and of course "Bart The General" displayed some great issues in life (some in simpsons life albeit, but still). This is where Season 23 should be, might I remind you of "Lisa Goes Gaga".

No such thing as golden era but this season was not the worst its underrated my fave episode is Moaning Lisa, the later are also underrated seasons because you hate the celebrity.

Let's just say that Seasons 1-10 were the golden days, we shouldn't really hate this season at all.

4 Season 23

This is easily one of the show's weakest points. "Moe Goes from Rags to Riches", "Lisa Goes Gaga", "At Long Last Leave" are some of the worst episodes, period. Most of everything else was completely forgettable (except for "Holidays of Future Passed", which is one of the best episodes in the whole series). - KalloFox34

Essily the worst season. Politically inept might be the show's lowest point. Gaga and the rag sucked as well. Lisa is obnoxious as usual.

This season had How I Wet Your Mother, the Book Job, and Holidays of Future Passed. It wasn't so bad. - 445956

This is where something went wrong. I had no problem with seasons 1-22, but then THIS happened. THIS is when the Simpsons went downhill, not during season 11. I remember, I was exited for the new season, I was watching, and I immediately shut off my T.V. , due to the awfulness of this season. The show now focuses way to much on Lisa and her liberal beliefs, way too many marijuana references, and they had Justin BEIBER ON THE SHOW FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! The show should have ended at season 22. - Megalink

5 Season 10

Seasons 9 and 10 are not the best, but at least get some funny episodes, unlike Seasons 11 and 12.

Season 10 was very dull and boring and only one or two episodes were good

At least Season 10 was an improvement upon Season 9. Season 9 was horrible!

This one has some of the best episodes. - KalloFox34

6 Season 11

It's a good season, it just had its weak points like "Saddlesore Galactica" and "Days of Wine and D'ohses" - KalloFox34

This season gave us Kill the Alligator and Run and Saddlesore Galactica - 445956

Expect for behind the laughter this season was lackluster. It had horrible stories. Characters acting out of the ordinary. If you like no sense simpsons this is for you. Plus the episodes were mostly boring

This season marks the beginning of the Silver Age (11-18). But it's also the worst season of the Silver Age.
-Silver Age (11-18)
Best to worst: 12>15>14>17>16>18>13>11
-Golden Age (1-10)
Best to worst: 6>8>4>5>2>1>3>7>10>9
-Bronze Age (19-29 or present)
Best to worst: 20>27>21>26>29>19>25>23>22>24>28

7 Season 2

Why is this on here this season was awesome let me remind you people of some great episodes like dead putting society itchy scratchy and marge dancing homer Bart gets hit by a car one fish two fish blowfish blue fish and many more!

Season 2 is way than they have ranked it

This is one of the best seasons... - KalloFox34

Why is this on here? COME ON! WHY WOULD WE HATE THIS SEASON?!

8 Season 17

What?! This was a great season! It may not have been in the Golden Age (1-10), yet in the Silver Age (11-18), but still this was great season!

(Best to worst)

This wasn't a memorable season at all. They had some episodes that completely dragged, like Bonfire of the Manatees, and not to mention the one where Marge got Amnesia was awful! the remotely only good or alright one was The Italian Bob. - Sboy727

The Simpsons Season 17 > Family Guy Season 4

9 Season 12

What about The Computer Wore Menace Shoes, HOMR, and Trilogy Of Error? Those were great episodes!

Homer getting raped by a panda is not at all funny. Like Season 11, I really hate this season.

This is actually a great season! This season is actually the best season of the Silver Age (11-18).

Seasons 12 and 13 are a lot better then people think. I enjoyed several episodes from this season. Way better than 10

10 Season 25

Episodes like "Pay Pal", "YOLO" and "Yellow Subterfuge" were pretty bad. It also has the weakest future episode.

It does has great episodes like "Brick Like Me" and "Homerland", though. - KalloFox34

It wasn't that good but when they had good episodes they were REALLY good. - 445956

It's not finished yet, but so far, it's just been awful. Plus, this is the season where they will kill of one of the popular recurring characters, so I'm not looking forward to THAT.

Simpsons lost mojo and entertainment value about 3season ago. Although the last 5 have lost some thing. I have watched every season from the beginning and I think this May be the last

The Contenders

11 Season 6

10th place? Really? That is WAY too high on the list! Should be at the bottom of this unflattering list. - KalloFox34

Season 6 was the greatest! - RickyReeves

Episodes such as Bart v Australia,Homer the great,Treehouse of horror 5 etc were really good in this season and really stood out. All episodes I at least moderately enjoyed in season 6. SHOULD BE NEARER TO THE TOP

Is this a joke? Season 6th here?! COME ON! "Treehouse of Horror V" is epic, "Bart v.s. Australia", "A Star is Burns" and "Homie The Clown" were hillariously funny, "Homer Badman" and "Homer the Great" had amazingly great plots, so why is season 6 worse then Season 22? P.s. I feel your pain RickyReeves

12 Season 18

"The Boys of Bummer" and "Please Homer Don't Hammer Em" were some of the show's absolute worst episodes. - KalloFox34

Now, this was a season with good episodes. 24 Minutes anyone? Or how about The Haw-Hawed Couple? I will admit there were some bad ones, even awful ones like The Boys of Bummer. - Sboy727

There were a number of good episodes here, but it was the last of them. It was all downhill from after this. - PositronWildhawk

This is the season that started to show signs of characters revolving to now.

13 Season 3

Season three was great it gave us classic episodes like like father like clown radio Bart homer at bat homers odyssey Bart the murderer and brother can you spare 2 dimes

WHAT?!?! HOW?!?! This season had some of the most classic episodes of this series! Such as Stark Raving Dad, Homer at The Bat, When Flanders Failed, and Bart the Murderer! - Sboy727

Why is this before season 27?! Season 3 was one of the high points of the Simpsons!

What the hell is this doing here? - KalloFox34

14 Season 13

I give this one credit for having the greatest modern THOH and giving us I am Furious (Yellow), Weekend at Burnsies, and Poppa's Got a Brand New Badgem - 445956

I love season 13 they are showing it on channel 4.

Season 13 was decent.

Season 13 was great! - KalloFox34

15 Season 19

Season 19 is where the characters started to change. This is the first post movie season.
- Then
Homer: Idiotic well meaning father
Marge: Hardworking mother
Bart: Mischievous good hearted son
Lisa: Smart overachieving daughter
Maggie: Genius baby

-Now
Homer: Moron
Marge: Space occupier
Bart: Brat
Lisa: Liberal activist
Maggie: Violent baby

Well, Season 18 was a little better than Season 19.
NOTE: Season 19 marks the beginning of the Bronze Age/Post Movie era.

The treehouse of horror 18 was TERRIBLE on here. After this episode all the other tree houses of horror were crap - Harri666

This season messed up the continuity of Homer and Marge's relationship, and the rest is history.

16 Season 26

These days it seems like the simpsons have a writing staff consisting of drunk monkeys and DR Phil crap it's just crap!

Okay, now I can agree with this argument. Season 26 was an awful season! With episodes like The Musk who Fell to Earth, Sky Police, The Man Who Came to Be Dinner, and Mathlete's Feat. But, there were one or two decent episodes, such as Bart's New Friend, and Simpsorama was one the best episodes in years! - Sboy727

This just in the simpsons hired a writing staff of drunk an d drugged up monkeys

17 Season 16

This one had the first episode I could really call terrible (On a Clear Day I Can't See my Sister). It had some good episodes, though. - KalloFox34

-The Simpsons season rating
Seasons 1-8: Great (Golden Age)
Season 9: Bad, though mostly okay
Season 10: Good and improvement from Season 9 (Last season of the Golden Age is Season 10)
Season 11: Worst pre-Movie season
Seasons 12-15: Amazing (Silver Age)
Season 16: Average (Some episodes like "Sleeping with the Enemy" were really wonderful)
Season 17: Great, though this is the last decent season
Seasons 18 and onwards: Average (Seasons 19, 20, 26, 27 were really good for the most part)

So far, Season 16 is an okay season.

Just started thinking about this season. (Barf)

I usually watch a season when I get it on DVD in about 3-4 days this one I started it and couldn't nbe bothered finishing it. - JohnGormleyJG

Well, at least they improved with Season 29, a little bit.

Treehouse of horror was BORING

I was REALLY looking forward to season 28, but when they churned out junk like 'The cad and the hat' and 'caper chase', I gave up. I did like 'the great phatsby' and 'there will be buds' though.

20 Season 21

There are some terrible episodes in here like "Postcards From the Wedge". - KalloFox34

"The Color Yellow" further ruined the Simpsons. That episode should be considered non-canon, or not official. Anyway, the previous season (20) was much better than 21.

A degrade from Season 20.

21 Season 14

Season 14 is better than Season 13.

22 Season 5

Season 5 was the best season ever! it shouldn't be on here - RickyReeves

What the hell is this doing up here this season is great are you forgetting episodes like homer and apu, $pringfield, homer the vigilante boyz In the hood, marge on the lamb and the boy who new to much! I rest my case.

This seasons was amazing and shouldn't be here. - KalloFox34

Worst season of all I hated cape fear. - Ilyas678

23 Season 4

Marge In Chains Was. Pretty Good - RockStarr

This season had the coronavirus prediction.

What is this doing on here kamp krusty marge in chains MR PLOW!

24 Season 8
25 Season 29

Not a good season, but "Flanders Ladder" was amazing.

Worst ever season. All series are total crap!

I can't believe this season gave us "No Good Read Goes Unpunshed" the 3rd worst Simpsons episode

26 Season 9

Most of the episodes of 9 were really good, it's my favorite season, but 'The Principal and the Pauper' and 'All Singing, All Dancing' ruined it - RickyReeves

Season 9 was ruined because of Miracle on Evergreen Terence - ShaunFan04

"The Principal and the Pauper" is non canon!

27 Season 27

They need to stop letting drunk monkeys writing there episodes :-(

This was a good season! Episodes such as "Barthood" were great. Definitely an improvement over the previous seasons (26, 25, 24, 23, 22, 21).

28 Season 30

The second half is pretty stale but watchable. Seasons 1-29 are all great, but 30 is a hit or miss sometimes. Hopefully the rest of the episodes (6 or 7 more) are promising this season. The creators are really running out of ideas this year. - orangemo8

29 Season 22

Absolutely wrong 22 was the best season of the new seasons

Has the atrocity that is "Love is a Many Strangled Thing". - KalloFox34

Better than 24

Agreed!

30 Season 20

Better than Seasons 19 and 18.

A pretty good season. - KalloFox34

It was okay but not that great

WHAT? Season 20 will FOREVER be my crown season.
Sure, you may adore Cape Feare, Last Exit to Springfield and stuff like that.
To me, those episodes are OK.
Radio Bart was the only old episode that actually earned a place in my heart, whereas most of the Season 20 episodes are AMAZING. Double Double, Boy in Trouble is obviously one of the funniest episodes ever.
