i was wondering. will any of you still watch this network after Futurama? i will, but mainly only for Simpsons and 24 (however long they live). also, i like That 70's Show, but other than those, and Futurama, i can't stand many FOX shows.

I don't have FOX, but I will watch FOX shows if I want.

Nope. Never. FOX has nothing left after Futurama is gone.

I will watch FOX, but only "The Simpsons" and occasionally "King of the Hill". Maybe "Malcolm" and "That 70s Show". Nothing else is worth it, especially not "Banzai".

In Europe, they have other channels that air FOX shows.

We sure do. In fact TV2 Zulu here in Denmark comes close to mistreating Futurama even worse than Fox. The usual time slot varies from showing to showing and is often delayed by football. And tonight at 3 am. they're going to show "War is the H-Word" for the first time.

God bless the internet!

No, I wont. Not just because of the loss of Futurama, but because there really isn't anything I care to watch on FOX after futurama.

And speaking of Tv2Zulu: how long ago is it they showed AOI I? 18 months!

18 months between (FOX)season 2 and (FOX)season 3. That's gotta be some kind of record. Good thing I don't have Zulu anymore.

In contrast, 3+ is showing The Simpsons seasons 8-13 on an infinite loop with 3-4 episodes a day. That's just wrong.

I'll still watch The Simpsons and Malcolm.  I think that's it, and if I feel in a bad mood I'll watch American Idol to laugh at the idiots.  Just because I hate fox doesn't mean I hate all of their shows.

I don't have Fox (being in Australia and all) but Futurama does usually get shown on free-to-air TV at 10:30pm on Thursdays here. Still, judging by other Fox shows I've seen - it's got nothing to offer now that Futurama and Family Guy have been cancelled (not to mention The Simpson's ever-dropping decline).

What other FOX shows do we have here in Aus?

I won't bother 'boycotting' Fox, but apart from The Simpsons, which I still watch sometimes, I don't think I watch many other Fox shows.

After Futurama, I'll still watch it for the Simpsons reruns.  I don't have any interest in any of their other shows.

Bones...the fact that they haven't shown new episodes in years should have been your first clue.

There's nothing to watch on FOX after Futurama.  I've stopped watching the Simpsons during this season and I don't miss it.  I'll probably only tune in to see the THOH episode this coming season.  Everything else they have is a big steaming pile of crap as far as I'm concerned.  It's too bad they have all the sports broadcast rights.  Without them they'd probably go bankrupt.

I'll still watch fox, but only for 48 more hours, and those 48 hours are reserved for 24.

I'm in the U.S. Well, that's "good news everyone" to hear that 24 wil have at least one and possibly two more seasons. I loved that show. It kept me on pins and needles the whole time, and season two was better than season one. But I digress, this is a Futurama board. So um... FOX SUCKS!

I'm not going to "boycott" it, per se, but at the same time I wont be watching much of it.  "The Simpsons" I'll remain faithful to for now, but "Boston Public" (guilty pleasure) has seriously been on the skids lately, and unfortunately looks like it can only get worse (though, this upcoming season is likely the last), so I don't know how much longer that'll last.  Nothing else on the network I like (to be fair, I've never seen "24" ).  And regarding new shows, I wont be watching any.  Again, this isn't because I'm "boycotting", but rather because I have better things to do, and as well don't want to get attached to another show that will likely be cancelled too early (these days, the likelyhood of ANY new show, on Fox or any other network, surviving is incredibly slim, especcially with the quality stuff).

Canada. My Tv Guide has a "What's Up" page and one day (This is back in February) I saw "48 More Hours". Underneath that it stated that 24 had been renewed for 2 more seasons, 48 hours. But I just checked tvguidelive.com and it only says it's been renewed for season 3. Anyway, maybe with 24 fox can see a good show and they'll keep it on their schedule. But these are the people that cancelled John Doe, Firefly and Dark Angel (actually I'm glad they canned Dark Angel cuz season 2 was horrible). Now I'm not going too say anymore 'cuz I don't want to jinx it.

I won't watch anything on Fox.  Except for the syndicated reruns of the pre-season 11+ Simpsons on my local Fox affiliate.

I won't boycott FOX, but I have nothing to watch on FOX because I don't bother to watch The Simpsons anymore, That 70's Show really sucks and...well, nothing else is worth watching on that network. My FOX affiliate cut in during "Spanish Fry" to announce a severe thunderstorm warning when no other local stations did![/i][/u] My dad was watching other programs on other stations at 7:00 and none of them got cut in on.

Simpsons reruns are on the UPN affiliate here.
The FOX affiliate shows M*A*S*H, but FX shows it a hell of a lot more.

Until FOX has something worth watching, I won't watch it - how's that?
