R.I.P Sam Simon, 1955-2015

(via TMZ)

For The Simpsons alone, he’ll be remembered forever and yet, he did so much more in and outside of comedy.

Sam Simon, the co-creator of The Simpsons, winner of 9 Primetime Emmys, writer/producer on It’s Garry Shandling Show, co-creator of The George Carlin Show, and so much more passed away today at the age of 59 after a long battle with colon cancer.

 Not that you ever need a reason to watch The Simpsons catalog, but make sure to remember Simon fondly every time you see his name at the end of the couch gag.
