The Simpsons: Season 15 Episode List

Can it get any worse than season 14?  Just barely.  What doesn't help this season at all, beside the crater of awful named "Bart-Mangled Banner", was that only two episodes this season scored 8 or above, compared to five such episodes last season.  Most episodes hovered in the mid 7s, indicating the level of mediocrity the series has now fallen to.
