The Simpsons stars are on strike for raise. Dan Castellaneta (Homer), Nancy Cartwright (Bart), Yeardley Smith ( Lisa), Julie Kavner (Marge), Hank Azaria (Moe and Apu) and Harry Shearer (Mr. Burns and Ned Flanders) are "... demanding a a salary of $360,000 per episode, or nearly $8 million for a 22-episode season. Each actor currently is paid $125,000 per episode, the source said..." Some say this is too much (peek up at alt.tv.simpsons). But come to think of it, The Simpsons contributes more than $1 billion a year for Fox! If Ray Romano can get $1.8 million per episode of Everybody Loves Raymond, why can't Homer and friends get some increase? Go for it, Homer!
