Another chance to kiss Bender's shiny metal butt?

Good news, everyone. After looking at the high DVD sales and Adult Swim ratings, Fox is talking to Matt Groening about bringing his criminally cancelled "Futurama" back into production. Maybe this time they won't air it on the "Pre-Empted-By-The-Freakin'-NFL-Post-Game-Show" 7 pm Sunday Death Slot.

That's awesome! Due to that prior timeslot, I've viewed most of the episodes as reruns in syndication. I'm doubly glad for this post as it moves those lovely pics of us further offscreen.

And more syndication to come. That article I linked to says that Comedy Central will be airing it in the future.

I could always repost the pics later. They will never die.

can they get rid of that michael rappaport show?

i might go back to watching tv on sunday nights now if they put it after the simpsons.

Micah said...

Yeah, that show is just Bad TV. I gave it a chance, but it was terrible. If this pans out, you'd think Fox would do a "Simpsons"/"Futurama"/"Family Guy"/"American Dad" block. Two Matt Groening shows, two Seth MacFarlane shows...my butt ain't moving for two hours.

YESSSSSSS!!!!

Now it remains to be seen whether Fox will learn from its mistakes (CIP: *AD*).

And, good lord, how is that stupid War at Home show still on the air?

There are reports that "Arrested Development" will surface on ABC or Showtime (probably the latter). I don't have a link, but Google it.

Did you catch the oh-so-subtle reference to that on the last episode? "The H.B.O. doesn't want us. Looks like it's show time."

Best. Self-referential. Episode. Ever.

"Please tell your friends about our show!"

I love the show so much I'd even buy a Showtime subscription, JUST for the show.
