'The Simpsons': Watch Benedict Cumberbatch play the British prime minister AND Snape -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

This Sunday on a Valentine’s Day-themed episode of The Simpsons, Bart has a romantic cow when hillbilly hottie Mary Spuckler (Zooey Deschanel) returns, while Marge kicks Homer out of the house for… not going to a travel bookstore soft opening with her. But in the name of love, he shall win her back! So Homer, along with Bart and a few other displaced husbands living at the Brokewood Apartments, decide to watch some British movies to figure out a way to win back their wives. In Love, Indubitably (a wink at Love Actually, yes, and also, we hope, to Maeby’s movie on Arrested Development), Benedict Cumberbatch — that coldly dashing Sherlock star who is playing the villain in Star Trek Into Darkness — pulls brilliant double duty by voicing both a Grant-like British Prime Minister and Severus Snape from Harry Potter. Let the British invasion of your heart begin now by watching his scene now. READ FULL STORY

Seth MacFarlane to guest on 'The Simpsons' as... -- EXCLUSIVE

You may now exclaim, “Holy crap! Woo hoo!”: Seth MacFarlane has recorded a guest spot on The Simpsons.

The Family Guy creator and voice actor (not to mention one of EW’s Entertainers of the Year and the host of the upcoming Oscars) will try to romance Marge in an episode that’s slated to air next fall as the season 25 premiere, EW has learned. The two popular animated shows, of course, share a network, a night, an overweight patriarch that falls well shy of role model, and a rivalry as they’ve playfully jabbed each other on screen over the years. “We wanted to come together in a bipartisan way to make Fox Sunday night rock,” sums up Simpsons executive producer Al Jean of the MacFarlane casting. “This was all very fun.” READ FULL STORY

'The Simpsons' pokes fun at Karl Rove's election night behavior

Breathe easy, Fox News — you weren’t explicitly singled out for mockery on this week’s post-election episode of The Simpsons. Karl Rove, on the other hand, wasn’t quite so lucky.

Fox’s long-running comedy mocked the Republican strategist last night with a chalkboard gag that alluded to Rove’s election night meltdown. The sentence Bart was forced to write over and over during his latest detention: “I will not concede the election till Karl Rove gives me permission.” Here’s video:

'The Simpsons': Watch Mr. Burns endorse Mitt Romney -- VIDEO

The following will come as good news to those in Mitt Romney’s camp who’ve been wanting him to shore up the geriatric-billionaire vote: Mr. Burns from The Simpsons has come out in support of the former Massachusetts governor less than a week before the 2012 Presidential election!

Check out this video from The Simpsons, in which the ruthless tycoon tries to spin his case for Romney. Turns out, he’s not concerned about the “47 percent” tape or “the tax returns that Wesley Snipe would call suspicious,” but rather the tale of a certain Romney family pet who saw part of our great country from the roof of a car. After you watch, feel free to tell us your choice for 2012: Broccoli Obama, Meat Romney, or a write-in for Mayor Quimby? (We already know how Homer voted.)

Obama or Romney? Homer Simpson votes for.... -- VIDEO

In 2008, Homer had a little trouble casting a ballot for Barack Obama, and wound up voting six times for John McCain before he was sucked into the machine. Will it go any better for him this year on Election Day? Check out this preview clip from an upcoming episode of The Simpsons, in which Homer shows up at his voting station without proper identification before weighing his options of President Obama (“I already got one wife telling me to eat healthy”) and Mitt Romney (“I hear he wears magic underpants”). After casting his vote, Homer catches a shocking glimpse at Mitt’s tax returns, which leads to… well, see for yourself.
