Last Thursday, FXX kicked off a full marathon of all 25 seasons of The Simpsons, in order, nonstop. Some 45-year-old man somewhere has not slept in four nights.

The marathon drew in about 1 million viewers on Thursday and was ranked number one in primetime viewing among males 18-34, overall, according to Deadline.

But it wasn’t just a television binge; it was a social media Simpsons love fest. The network created the hashtag #EverySimpsonsEver and a Twitter account that tweets out the schedule in four-hour blocks, lest anyone miss an installment of ‘Treehouse of Horror.’
