On September 30th, The Simpsons celebrated the premiere of the 30th season. The show has already officially been dubbed the longest-running scripted primetime show on TV.
People are thrilled to see the show reach this milestone.
It’s crazy to think the show has made it this long! Congratulations to you, and the entire cast and crew for giving us 30 years of incredible entertainment. Here’s to 30 more! pic.twitter.com/SRYcRHQesJ

But 30 seasons is not the show’s only impressive achievement. The fact that this long-running hit show is animated and geared toward viewers over the age of 18 is also quite interesting.
Since The Simpsons‘ inception in 1939, American television has seen a surge in adult-centric cartoons.
Famous animated series of today include South Park, Family Guy, and Archer.
Because of the variety in programming, the Data Team at All Home Connections decided it might be fun to find out the most popular adult cartoons in each state.
Analysts took a list of the top 15 animated sitcoms and cross referenced the list with Google Trends to find each state’s most searched show.
Check out their results below.
People are loving the results of this unexpected survey.

to the cable company trying to get us to write about our state's most popular animated sitcom: i'm going to take a wild guess that 98 percent white utah is not as enamored with the boondocks as you are telling me they are pic.twitter.com/welct4Y0Yd

So, the most popular animated show in my state is Archer? Maybe I should consider watching that one after all. https://t.co/Nw2ykpPuqW

But lots of people are confused at Utah’s result .
Really? Really, All Home Connections, whoever you are? Supposedly. not only is “The Boondocks” the favorite animated show in Utah, but Utah is the only state that views the show so favorably. Riiiiiight.https://t.co/g4IarEy3bT
