I think that part of the problem with the show, though, is that there are too few places for them to go after 20+ years, if everything stays the same. The changes I've talked about are things I think could give the writers new material.
It's like with "Married With Children": After 10 or so years, the show became less funny because there were fewer new places for the comedy to come from. You kept getting the same jokes about Kelly being a slut, Bud being a perv, Peggy being a useless housewife, etc. They looked like they were going to make a big change with Bud going to Trumaine University, but that wasn't pursued.
Well if they want to age the simpsons theyd still have to keep the simpsons we know & love. I could see a handful of eps a season though fast forwarding 5 years or so. Or maybe even going back to Homer's hair days for a while lols. Its very possible, but Id discourage them from permanently doing that. Could sink the show.
