Woo-hoo! This is a first: Homer Simpson will appear live in an episode of The Simpsons during the May sweep.

During the May 15 episode on Fox, Marge, Lisa and Bart will turn the show over to Homer, who will take a break from stuffing his face to comment on the events of the day live during both the East Coast and West Coast broadcasts. He’ll answer fans’ questions, which they can tweet from May 1-4 using #HomerLive.

The Simpsons, now in its 27th season,  is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean are the executive producers. The Gracie Films Worldwide Brand Division develops and produces the licensed content for the series. Film Roman, a Starz company, is the animation house.
