Just browsing through the comcast guide and saw that futurama was just starting on MTV at 3 oclock central time.  The first commercial was a futurama commercial saying that futurama will be on weekdays at 3 and 3:30 central time.  This must have just started today.

As much as I dont like MTV, i will watch futurama on here to support it (even though i own the seasons).

Hmmm...yeah, it looks like they're airing "My Three Suns" as I speak type. I don't watch MTV on any regular basis; I wonder if they've been promoting this at all.

I never watch MTV but i still think this would have came up on here somewhere.  I kind of doubt they advertised it at all.

Was the syndication deal with CC or Viacom? Because I remember that when CN ran Futurama, TBS would occasionally air it (both owned by Turner Broadcasting). So that would explain MTV being able to air the show.

Hmmm, i guess thats true.  I'm sure that the news that Futurama is going to recieve new episodes on Comedy Central had a lot to do with this decision.  Probably trying to give the show some extra publicity. 

The credits on the show had comedy central logos.  I wonder how long they will play the show for.  Its nice to have episodes playing during the middle of the day.

I just saw a spot for Futurama on MTV. Apparently they're airing it as part of their new "Balls Out" comedy block, whatever that is. Sounds classy.

At any rate, it's nice for the show to be getting exposure on a network that's geared towards younger viewers. Any attempt to build upon the fanbase is a good thing, in my book.

Don't worry about quality being a standard for MTV now. The show that comes on right after is terrible (I didn't watch more than the promo. Don't need to either).

This is probably way off but perhaps Viacom is trying to catch regular MTV viewers off-guard. They are hoping that the kind of person who normally turns in at 3 for their entertainment programming will be too lazy to change the channel and will watch Futurama. If they become a fan they might start looking for other times it's on and will be lead to CC. If they are lead to CC they might become a bigger fan and will:

-become a regular viewer
-buy the DVD's
-watch the new episodes

Or they need filler before Next comes back (What!? How do I know that exists?)

I caught the last act of "A Big Piece of Garbage" earlier this afternoon while flipping channels and I was incredibly confused.  I thought I'd accidentally switched to Comedy Central for a moment; they even showed the Comedy Central logo along with the credits.

I'm glad Futurama's getting more airtime, but the show it led into was... well, I stuck around for 30 seconds and that's about all I could take of it.

We don't care for MTV?  We don't watch it?  We ignore it so much that even the inclusion of Futurama in a article title would leave us almost avoiding it all together if it included "MTV" as well?

Many a reason.

I've checked Google News and there has been no stories with both Futurama and MTV in them except for ones saying "Comedy Central is owned by Viacom, which also owns MTV" in the revival news articles. It just came out of nowhere, and usually there's some news article stating something like this before it happens.

Viacom also owns Spike, Nickelodeon,  TVLand, and a bunch more channels.  Now I'm gonna have to compulsively check all of Viacom's channels for Futurama episodes, lol.  Besides MTV, If Futurama turns up on anymore Viacom owned TV channels, Spike seems to be the most likely one.  IMO

Well, I'm glad Viacom seems to see like Futurama so much.  Maybe we'll at least get a few more seasons beyond the new 26 episodes.

It looks like a two week run is all MTV gave Futurama.

That's Okay, Futurama is way too classy and cerebral for MTV.

I agree.  Futurama is too worthy and more sophisticated to be on MTV, anyway.  It's not being shown on MTV anymore.   Now 'Scrubs' is on. 

Besides Futurama is nothing like the MTV cartoons shown in the past like Ren and Stimpy, Beavis and Butthead, The Head, or Where My Dogs At.

Thank god, I truly believe that the people who have any association with MTV whatsoever, are pure evil, and should be stopped.  Maybe I am hater, but I would like for someone to prove me wrong.

Proof that MTV no longer worthy of airing quality cartoons:  They canceled Clone High.
