List of fictional TV shows depicted on the FOX animated series "The Simpsons." Throughout its more than 20 years on television, "The Simpsons" has found opportunities to mock just about every other popular TV show and genre. Sometimes, the show will call out other series by name in their parodies, as they have done with direct jokes about "Married with Children," "Ren and Stimpy" and "COPS." But other times, "Simpsons" writers will create their own heightened versions of popular TV shows - or invent original TV concepts out of whole cloth - and then use these to skewer real TV shows or even whole networks. (Examples include "Don't Go There," intended as a parody of the then-popular "Friends" and "Chop Shop'd," a parody of "Punk'd" in which celebrity guests have their cars destroyed.)

This perfectly cromulent list collects together all the joke, fictional TV shows featured on episodes of "The Simpsons." When possible, the specific target of the parody is also identified.
