They both have guest appearences by former simpsons writer. Conan O'brian was in X-mas story and one of the internet nerds in Bicyclops built for two is David Coen.

Okay I have a question:

I guess this is over the 24hr period but I'll have a guess anyway. Would it be the use of the catch phrase "One of these days X: BANG! ZOOM! Straight to Y?" (said by the Jackie Gleason robot in TSHL and Lrrr in SF)

Neat.  smile

Now, besides the obvious fact that they're both about telling the story of Fry's past through flashbacks, what connects:

 The Luck Of The Fryrish
 Jurrasic Bark

Again, we're going into the story about Fry's past here. It's not the one I'm looking for!

 Here, lemme dish out a clue: it is something that is said in one episode and done in the other.

"The Lesser of Two Evils"
"30% Iron Chef"
"A Leela of Her Own"
"Leela's Homeworld"

Would it have anything to do with the fact that Leela cries in every one of those episodes?

It would have everything to do with that fact. As that's the connection.

And this time I want a good few guesses before I start having to dumb it down with clues!  tongue

someone tries to kill someone in each episode?
FOABP: Robots try to kill fry+leela
WTBR: Native Martians try to kill kif
TWOF: Fry and nibblonians try to kill brains

EDIT: Wait, I got a better idea!
all episodes involve elders!
FOABP: Robot elders
WTBR: Martian elders
TWOF: Nibblonian elders

I wish SuperFry were here. He'd make guesses that would stop anyone feeling stupid about getting it wrong.

 Alright, losers, here's a clue: the link is to do with commanding.

I'm sure this is wrong but I'm gonna try anyway.
in FOABT bender is in command of the other robots
in WTBR Kiff in the end is in command of the buggalo(this is already falling apart)
in TWOF the nibblonians are in command of fry
Idk like I said I know this is wrong but maybe it'll get somebody else thinking

one more try:
(this one seems fairly obvious, if this is correct, i'll go insane)
All involve ancient "groups"?
FOABP: Robots (robots dont age, so they could be very old)
WTBR: Martians (they look old, at least)
TWOF: Nibblonians (Nibbler is at least 1000 years old)

wait, nevermind. i forgot sbout the clue...
commanding... hmmm...

maybe if i combine two of mine:
FOABP: RObots are lead by bender/other robot/robot elders
WTBR: Martians are lead by the one main martian 'chief'
TWOF: fry is lead by nibbler/nibblonians

No. I'll give you another clue: it's an action performed to get other people to do stuff or for things to happen.

Any closer?

You know what, that's not it, but I wish I'd gone with that for a connection instead. It's better than mine, trust me!

 You're on the right lines by mentioning the robots, Martians and Nibblonians anyways.

Going waaaaaaaaaaaay out on a limb here...

In each episode a sound or alert is used to command/notify people.

FOABP:  2 sound blasts are used, one to signify a human alert and another to signify their human-hunt.
WOF:  The nibblonian blows a horn to start the Feast of a Thousand Beasts
WTBR:  The "Dinner's Over" sound that is heard that commands the sand-storm.

EDIT: Actually, since starting tomorrow I'll be in New York until Friday, I'll accept Drippy_Taco's answer because it is pretty close to the correct one.

 The actual connection was that they all feature someone playing a musical instrument to command others:
 FOABP - Robot 'plays' horn (which makes Apple Mac startup sound) to signal the beginning of the human hunt.
 WTBR - Singing Wind plays a whistle to start the martian throat singing tornado.
 TWOF - Nibblonian plays a trumpet (badly) to start The Feast of 1,000 Feasts.

 So your turn D_T.  smile
