Also click on the "Taking a Break" and "Cancellation" buttons at the top of the screen.  Futurama is not on any of these lists, so we have to assume FOX haven't yet made a final desicion.

FOX will likely switch all Futurama related questions through askFOX.com to automated replies and completely forget about it all together.

Fox have a habit of destroying their most succesful franchises.Look what they did to Alien! I think after a few seasons, it becomes a struggle to keep a show fresh. You can see in the episodes when they're working too hard for laughs. South Park is suffering too. The Simpsons should've gone a long time ago.
The truth is nothing should last forever - always leave on a high, before contempt creeps in. The finest comedy show the UK has produced in a long time - The Office - finshed after its second series! A brave thing to do , and the right thing.
Being 'cancelled' isn't the nicest note to leave on - there's always and underlying feeling that 'it wasn't that good' - in the case of Futurama this is nonsense of course. I think when he got a sniff of trouble at Fox, Groening should've said he didn't want anymore ( even if it wasn't the case ) - far more dignity about that!

Actually The Office is coming back for one more special episode but it has been agreed to do no more new series.

Maybe once the Box sets outsell the simpsons ones in the USA, and worldwide (as they are going in Australia) Fox might wake up. Also who is gonna buy 17 simpsons box sets?

Probably FOX are expecting people of the same brain capacity as theirs to buy all 17, or just someone who loves every ounce of the Simpsons and doesn't care/fails to see that the latest ones are really going down the drain - hey another link!

the local comic book store guy told me that he heard a rumour that matt groening told fox that if they didn't renew futurama, he'd take simpsons and fuck off to another network. anyone else heard this rumour?

Your comic book guy is a moron. But it'd be cool if Matt did do that.
On TV Guide it said: Simpsons/Malcolm in the Middle/King of the Hill/Futurama/Andy Richter returns Feb. 2.
...not quite. Here's the Feb. schedule if you're not already outraged by it already.
7-8pm: KOTH
8-9pm: Simpsons
9-10pm: Malcolm

I'm pretty sure FOX own all the rights for 'The Simpsons' and so Matt can't do that.

Fox owns The Simpsons as well as Futurama, so even if Matt Groening wanted to do that, he couldn't do it. The only rights Groening owns are the rights for the comics.

I'm watching you. Yes, YOU!

I got some bad news. The likelyhood for CN to make their own episodes of Futurama is slim and if they do, it won't be nearly as good as the Fox. Reason is, Batman Beyond also got the short end of the stick by WB (which is another horrible network and so is NICK) and ended up on Cartoon Network. Batman Beyond did fairly well on Cartoon Network but there is no chance CN will make new episodes. I high doubt, even with the high ratings CN is getting for Futurama they would try to make a stab at making new episodes. I hope I'm wrong but...

Also have you noticed how many good sophisticated cartoons have been cancelled. Invader Zim, Batman Beyond, Futurama, in the past year or so? And in their place they get cartoons like Spongebob, Mucha Lucha (or Static Shock) and KotH?

It could be even worse than that. Looking around CBS News I turned up this article:

Certainly not good news for those of us who prefer REAL entertainment  frown.
