The Return of Bart: New episodes of "The Simpsons" will begin airing Oct. 11, the Fox Broadcasting Co. announced Monday. The cartoon family, which moved to Thursdays this summer to battle NBC's top-rated "The Cosby Show," is currently in a second round of repeats. Original episodes will see Homer Simpson getting a new male secretary who makes a pass at his boss. Dad Simpson also will experiment with a hair-growing tonic.
