'The Simpsons' fans attempt record with marathon 500-episode viewing

   Feb 9, 6:05 pm

London, Feb 9 (ANI): On Wednesday afternoon in Los Angeles, 100 fans of the longest-running animated comedy show, 'The Simpsons' will watch all 500 episodes of the series in a row, in the hopes of breaking the Guinness World Record for consecutive hours of a TV show watched.

The winner will bag the cash prize of 10,500-dollar along with Simpson's merchandise, the BBC reported.

The participants are allowed to eat and drink during the marathon, but they'll be disqualified if they fall asleep.

Since each episode of the 'Simpsons' is around 22 minutes long, it would take more than eight days to watch every episode.

Twentieth Century Fox, which broadcasts 'The Simpsons' in America, is sponsoring the event and supplying the winner's prize.

Fans need to be a US resident and over 18 years to participate in the attempt, according to the event's official website.

Three American men who watched 86 hours of the Kiefer Sutherland series 24 in 2010 hold the current record for marathon TV viewing.

The show's 500th episode 'At Long Last Leave' is due to air later this month. (ANI)
