There's a new article on C4 teletext now, discussing Futurama's move to Cartoon Network.

One unsettling thing - the article continually refers to the show as "axed".  Now I know C4 are not the most reliable source of information, but is it possible this guy knows something we don't?

Maybe they're talking about the ax they chop up the episodes with.  tongue

well it seems ironic that the show Friends is still airing on fox even thought they stoped production them selves. and Futurama just gets booted off of fox right after the last episode. They treat Frieds like royalty and they treat Futurama like a piece of trash. I HATE FOX!!!!!!!

A massive bump there, Lrrrr.  (It's dated Sep 2002, if you hadn't noticed.)

Yes, that has been pointed out a lot.  There are tonnes of posts on PEEL (and all over the internet) that demonstrate FOX's stupid executives.

If you do a little research, you'll learn about the whole "FOX hated Futurama all along".  I won't go into it, you can use a search engine and find out, or wait for someone else to say it.  It's a story that's been repeated and morphed as much as the story of the life of Jesus.  Okay, not quite as much as that, but you get the idea  wink

Otherwise, benevuto a PEEL!

Friends was originally on NBC, not Fox; you must have seen it in syndication.  And for a few weeks after the last episode of Futurama, Fox did air reruns, at least once showing two episodes in one night.  I think at that point they finally realized it was popular on Cartoon Network and made one last effort to cash in.

Yeah, I think that Action Jacktion is right. I believe that Fox had a double-feature sort of thing a week or two after the final episode. I'm pretty sure they showed "Less than Hero" and "The Why of Fry", and that was the last I ever saw it on Fox.

Reading through this thread, I see why the off topic section is so booming here. Must be rough having the same conversation for two years.

u have no idea. I hate seeing threads being bumped from long ago when PEELers still had hope that their beloved show would return to them....

Friends wasn't on FOX, rather on NBC.  Who knows?  Maybe those missing 16 episodes will go on DVD.  One can only hope.  The shows FOX treats like royality are, "American Idol", "The Simpsons", Malcolm in the Middle", and all those other reality TV Shows and Dysfuctional Family sitcoms they show. 

FOX seems to worship American Idol.  I'll never watch FOX again, not after for what they did to Futurama.  Why did FOX hate that show so much?

I don't know about you guys but I think all of us should email fox and harass them untill they have no choice and if they axe it well harass them even more.......I mean it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Who's with me....................oh wait they could just ignore the emails and calls.  But who cares who's with me.  By the way Teral tell me if you got my fanfic It's a Wonderful Life. you emailed me earlier but I think I sent it this time.  Ohh yeah one more thing whose with me!!!!!!!!!!!Wait who am I kiddin we are B.O.N.E.D .  I mean come on competing against American Idol,well as good old Bender said another t.v. show canceled before it's time.  Ahh cheese it I'm out see ya.

Someday Futurama may have a future in the hands of a network who actually cares, like the Cartoon Network.  Matt, David, and all those other wonderful guys made a HUGE mistake in allowing a station owned by Rupert Murdoch (a money-driven jerkwad) and a bunch of conservatives who are willing to cut the poorly-rated good shows to keep making money off of lowbrow crap to air such a blessing to the airwaves.  (I've been reading a lot of political novels lately.  smile)

Can you believe Fox is going to re-air Family Guy!  I mean I respect the show but it's no Futurama.  Those fools at Fox need to get their priorities straight.

all those capitalist Bourgeois pigs at FOX care about is $$$$$$$, not the fanbase or the episode quality.

For every extra exclamtion mark and elipse, God kills a piglet.

And damn you for bumping this thread, Lrrr! To the bowels of Hades with thee! :P

And Futurama's fanbase, while nothing to sniff at, it seems, isn't particularly massive. A qucik Google search provide 6,000,000 + hits for Family Guy, and 'only' 1,000,000 + hits for Futurama.

Conclusion? Find a new interest. And hold a tiny vigal for your lost love. And buy that crummy merchandise! Some of it isn't even crummy!

"Family guy" only produce slightly above 500000 hits, while family guy (no quotation marks) give 6000000+ hits, but then oou get all sites with those two words.

well, duh. They're a company, ofcourse they're only in it for the profit. Thinking otherwise would be naive. What's sad, is Futurama could have turned into a profitable show with a little support and advertisement from FOX.

Welcome to PEEL nemesis2me.  smile

You'll want to have a look at this.

And if there's any new Futurama news, it most likely will be on CGEF.
