The Simpsons Trivia, 7 p.m., Facebook Live on Raised By TV, donations encouraged,

Brandon and Zenaida are two artists who have lost their livelihoods for the time being and launched this trivia for seasons 1-5 (amazing) to spread some nerd joy, get some laughs going and hopefully get some donations.

Also, now you have a perfect excuse to start bingeing those classic seasons of “The Simpsons” that changed pop culture.
