Apu from 'The Simpsons'

RUMORED TO DIE

We KNOW someone's gonna die on "The Simpsons" next season ... and we KNOW Jennifer Tilly is tight with co-creator Sam Simon ... so when we saw her in NY yesterday, it was the perfect opportunity to pry for some inside info.

Tilly wasn't exactly ready to sell out her poker buddy, but she did tell us that the person rumored to be getting the chop is everyone's favorite Kwik-E-mart employee Apu Nahasapeemapetilon.

Apu is definitely a candidate ... according to Executive Producer Al Jean who teased, "the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character."

Vegas is also taking odds on the death ... with Sideshow Bob being the favorite, followed by Penelope Owsley, Krusty and Grandpa Abe.

I hope it's not Apu. The dude's got a wife and eight kids.

I don't care how old Jennifer Tilly gets, I would hit it like the angry fist of God. I'd hit it so hard, if you pulled me out you'd be the king of England.

I wish I cared. That show was kinda funny and clever for a few shows but now I cant even watch it. Talk about a show that should have gone off the air and is way past its due date

Apu is going to die? Who will run the Kwik Mart? I thought Moe or Snake would die.

Sam Simon, I believe, is Jennifer's ex-husband. The bulk of her millions is the result of Calif. community property laws.

Sam Simon left The Simpsons 20 years ago... he has zero involvement with the show (but his contract gets him paid millions from a % of the shows profits)

so...

Truth    

Sam Simon is also dying from cancer. Like, he cares what character The Simpsons is killing off next year.

When was the last time you heard someone at work say, " Hey, did you see that new episode of the Simpsons last night?" "It was so funny"!
I think the last time I heard someone say that was well over ten years ago. I don't know who watches this show anymore or even why it is still on the air
