Gervais episode nets 2 million viewers

Simpsons News — Posted 27 Apr, 2006 by MrBurns

Ricky Gervais' episode of The Simpsons, "Homer Simpson, This Is Your Wife", was a ratings winner last night - claiming Sky One's highest-ever viewing figures for the cartoon.

Gervais, 44, voiced the part of an English office manager, Charles, who lives with Marge following a Wife Swap-style reality show. The episode marks the first time a British writer has been asked to write an episode of the long-running comedy.

Last night 2.18 million viewers watched the episode, giving Sky One its highest ever audience for the cartoon comedy. It also became Sky One`s second most-watched show following an episode of Friends that attracted 2.8 million in 2000.

We have put up an interview with Ricky Gervais from April's Sky Magazine.
