While this is a ways away, beginning May 25th Futurama will be pushed back to 11:30 PM E/P, but only on Sunday nights, so that Home Movies can show new episodes. Monday thru Thursday nights will remain the same at 11 PM E/P.

Silence! Home Movies = rocks. For once, I'm not pissed off at a Futurama timeslot change.

I concur, Home Movies is good stuff.  Futurama first, Home Movies first, I don't care.  I watch both so the order doesn't affect me.

Silence! A push-back in times, especially on Sunday, could help ratings.

Yes! Now I don't have to choose to watch the Simpsons, Daily Show or Futurama at 10! Just have to worry about 2.

Silence! This is only on Sunday nights. We still are going to get Futurama/Daily Show conflict on the weekdays (though I'd watch TDS at 1 am.)

Silence! But it should eliminate the conflicts with the demographic portion that wants to watch the news.
And it doesn't conflict with Letterman or Leno.

Silence!.....you're talking too loud.

What's strange is now on Sundays, Futurama reruns will be sandwiched between new content.

11 PM - Home Movies (new episodes)
11:30 PM - Futurama (reruns)
12 AM - Harvey Birdman (new episodes)
12:15 AM - Aqua Teen Hunger Force (new episodes)
12:30 AM - Sealab 2021 (new episodes)
everything else - reruns

Uh, silence!...yeah, anyway is anyone else mad about the not showing Space Ghost Coast to Coast anymore (at least not as much, I actually saw it last Sunday, but it doesn't have a normal timeslot that i know of)?  I don't know about you, but I loved that show.

Also, speaking of Adult Swim, did anyone else used to stay up all night on Saturday and watch the 5-hour Midnight Run on C.N.?  Just wondering.

No no, it wasn't Futurama, it was like old school cartoons, mostly anime but some american stuff.  Like Robotech, old Gundams, and Dragonball Z. Those shows kicked ass.  But the American stuff was mostly comedy, like Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Sealab, and like a half an hour of those cartoon clips of Wondertwins or Scooby Doo or something that are created for more "adult humor".  It was sweet.  Oh yeah, Silence!  big grin

By the way, this was like 3 or 4 years ago on Saturday nights only, midnight to 5 AM

Silence! Then why did you bother to mention it?
Let's just see what happens. Maybe CN's ratings will go up even farther than they already have (see http://www.peelified.com/cgi-bin/Futurama/1-001730-1/  for DXC's ratings rise figures) and CN will order some new eps to eliminate the new/rerun/new sandwich that lfv was talking about.

Boy wouldn't that be amazing.

ratings should come for Feb soon. i'm more curious about the TNT episode. the All Star Game post game show got a 6.8 rating. i hope Futurama got at least a 5.0. even if most of them are drunks who forgot to turn off the tv

Well, if they're showing new episodes of Home Movies, thyat gives us some hope... a useless, insignificant amount, but still....

Because Adult Swim is based off of the Midnight Run.  Kinda like it evolved from it, and since Futurama is in Adult Swim and we were talking about other cartoons like Home Movies, I figured I'd mention it.

I think I saw the sky tonight...

Sorry for thread necromancy. But looks like we have an update. AS ran a short ad last night regarding a schedule change May 25th, and it looks like Futurama will be dropped from Sundays entirely and remain on Mon. - Thurs. The Adult Swim original shows will be showing new episodes though (except for The Brak Show, which is still off the air).
