This may be a constantly asked question, I'm not sure, but why did 1ACV10, 1ACV11, 1ACV12 and 1ACV13 all air in season two? It's the same with a few other episodes... and then there's a season five! I don't get why they don't just make the seasons production code wise, it would be alot easier in my opinion. I mean, TWELVE episodes in season four? That's just insane.

season 1 is not the same as ACV 1

season 1 got 9 episodes and ACV 1 got 13 episodes

Yuh-huh... but techically I think season one actually has thirteen episodes. Every season of Matt Groening's other show which I will not mention because I will probably get hit has around 22 episodes every season. Let's see the Futurama seasons NOT production code wise, shall we?

Season 1: 9 (Uh... no)
Season 2: 20 (That's an alright number, I guess)
Season 3: 15 (No again)
Season 4: 12 (Terrible, just terrible)
Season 5: 16 (OK, but still could use a few more)

...and the first five seasons from the show I will not mention:

Season 1: 13
Season 2: 22
Season 3: 24
Season 4: 22
Season 5: 22

See the difference?

I believe it's because Futurama began airing half way through the regular TV season, so therefore it was a smaller than normal season.

So First we have the episode numbers 1-72 in FOX's order
Then we have the McSeasons, which is FOX's order again (Eg 5-3 means Season 5 Episode 3)
Then, the Production order, the way it was supposed to be (Eg 3ACV04 means Season 3 episode 4)

Basically the eps were supposed to be in the *ACV** order/timing, but fox played them in the other way (Referred to a McSeasons)

Uh... that was handy, I guess, but I'm sure we were all aware of the seasons being like that. I guess this thread needs a closing now, or something.

The reason why there are so few episodes shown was because of it's aring slot, 7PM Sundays.  In this slot, it was usually postponed because of extra innings in baseball games, or overtime in football.

There was no Season 5 in production.

1ACV1-12
2ACV1-19
3ACV1-22
4ACV1-18

FOX Pre-emption meant episodes were not aired when they were meant to be and so there became a backlog. Season 1 ran short by 4 episodes, which made an extra long season 2, but some of the 2ACV episodes were aired in Season 3 and so on. This eventually turned into an entire Season 5.

This is due to FOX not showing episodes when they should, not showing them in the correct order and generally screwing about with Futurama.
3ACV12 - The Route Of All Evil is actually aired as S5E03, that was due to production problems though, not FOX.

So I'm guessing Fox was responsible for the awful timeslot? I'm not sure, I live in the United Kingdom.

Kola's right - it was a midseason show, so that's why season one was so short. It's also common FOX practice to hold over some episodes from the previous season to show as part of the next (for example, Season 15 of The Show We Shall Not Mention will have 5 episodes which were actually produced in the 14th production run).

Plus, I believe at some point down the road there was a WGA strike, which lead to FOX holding off even more episodes, in case the strike was not resolved in time (I believe this was Season Three).

Since FOX air them, they choose when and how many to air. No matter how many are being churned out they aren't all being aired at the same rate.
E.G. Futurama finished production in February last year (1 year, 6 months ago), it finished airing two weeks ago.

Sorry, didnt think it would look so crappy. i'll try and patch it up a bit.. but basically "*-**" (Eg 5-11) are the Mc seasons, the way fox produced them and the "*ACV**" (Eg 3ACV02) ones are the "Real" order the way it was intended to be watched. I just put it there for contrast. Check back at the old post in about 3 mins.
