| TV Show Information
The Homer Show was a short-lived American television comedy series starring Homer Simpson. It aired on FOX.
FOX employees going through viewer-submitted video tapes discovered that there were plenty of funny clips with Homer and they got an idea which they presented to the executives. They want to film Homer around the clock and make him a star of an hour-long show. The producer contacts Mayor Quimby and after a town meeting without the Simpson family they decided to begin filming Homer and set up hidden cameras around Springfield with the offer that the rest of city's residents get a bundle of money. The series will also not be broadcast in Springfield to reduce the possibility that Homer discovers that he is on TV. They start to film and the producers love what Homer does, as do the audience. After the first episode of The Homer Show was broadcast it got a high rating. Everyone in town starts fawning up to Homer, and Apu and Moe advertise for their business when they talk with Homer to get free advertising. Homer is happy that his friends care so much about him. After a few weeks Bart accidentally meets the people in the TV van, and he finds out the truth. They bribe him to keep quiet and Homer is getting tired of being so popular among his friends. When he gets chased by the entire population of Springfield so that they can be seen on the show with Homer he flees home and the producers become worried. Marge also thinks too many strange events have occurred recently. Homer decides to stay in bed for five days and to save the show the TV producers go to the Simpsons to tell them the truth. Homer learns that he is famous and they ask him to continue as before and Homer decides to return to his old self in order to entertain his millions of fans. However one problem occurs as Homer tries to be funny on purpose, which turns off viewers and caused the show to be cancelled.
