As anyone who checks CGEF with any regularity likely knows, Variety magazine reports that Comedy Central is buying the cable syndication rights to Futurama when Cartoon Network/Turner's contract runs out at the end of 2007. CC wants to put our show in a prime time spot, presumably to give the network a bit of repectability. All I can say is that this is easily the best thing to happen to Futurama since [adult swim] picked it up, especially given the apparently massive amount of cash being exchanged in this deal.
In short: Good news, everyone.
One quibble though: Variety refers to Bender as a porn-addicted crackhead. This is of course patently false. First of all, he's a porn-addicted alcoholic. Second of all, how could a robot be a crackhead? They have neither noses nor veins.
EDIT: Did you just vigilante mod me, boy
? I've been telling people their threads were crap since before you even conceived of having the idea cross your mind of thinking about registering here. This is news now. It'll be olds by the time we get to 2008.
