ABSTRACT
At the TV program "The Simpsons," principal voices Dan Castellaneta, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Julie Kavrier, Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer are said to be holding out for a raise from $125,000 an episode to a reported $360,000-per in order to voice the show's 16th season next fall. Considering the length of their work week, these folks already earn a king's ransom. It's already the longest-running comedy in TV history and getting longer-running all the time. It's also well understood that this is perhaps the ultimate writers show.
