BEST BETS

"The Simpsons" are moving home.

This series, which debuted on Sunday nights back in January 1990, returns there this week-end.Actually, "The Simpson's" Sunday night history goes back even further that the series debut. Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie began as cartoon shorts inserted in "The Tracy Ullman Show," which also aired on Sundays, way back in 1987.

Starting this weekend, "The Simpsons" can again be seen each Sunday at 7 p.m. on Ch. 13. And this week, there's a bonus episode at 7:30 p.m.

Yes, it's a pair of reruns--the first featuring Homer teaching a class about successful marriage, of all things; the second about Homer and Bart getting lost on a camping trip.

But even in repeats, this is one of the best-written, funniest sitcoms on television.
