Revival of Futurama Petition
I know a lot of people will say "There already was a great big petition, and fox didn't care." but for those of you, hear me out.
I think it's a good idea because:
We might get futurama back, duh. Also, the show actually seems more popular now that the reruns have been on [as] for a while. I think if it were advertised well, it might do even better than the original.
Even if it doesn't do better, now FOX has DVD sales and rerun ratings as well as the signatures to go by.
Reasons why I think it's a waste of time:
I probably wouldn't be able to get more than 160,000 signatures, or whatever the original got.
And even if it did get as many, would fox listen? maybe not. If CN offered to buy it shortly after, maybe. Who knows.
If the petition is successful, I'll send it to Cartoon Network also. If they realized how popular it was, more than just ratings-wise, maybe they's offer to buy it from FOX, or pressure FOX to make more episodes. I'm sure Turned Broacasting Company has more influence over fox than a bunch of nerds at their computers! (and face it, that's what we are!)
Here is the actual text of the petition, for those too lazy to go to it:
As many people know, the last episode of Matt Groening’s second cartoon show, Futurama, was aired in August of 2003. FOX has discontinued the series, much to the discontent of anyone who enjoys quality television programming.
Since it’s cancellation, Futurama has gathered a sort of cult following. Reruns have been airing on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim programming block. It has consistently ranked #1 in its time period on basic cable in delivery and ratings of its target audiences, particularly adults 18-34 and 18-24 and men 18-24. The recent release of Season 3 on DVD was ranked #3 on Amazon.com’s top seller list for the first few days of sales, and is still #27 after almost three weeks.
Why did FOX cancel such a great show? No one knows. But the truth is this: it should be brought back! That’s why I am starting this petition for the Revival of Futurama, one of the greatest shows ever to grace a TV screen!

So please: I need as much help as I can get! We need to spread this everywhere on the net! If [-mArc-] or anyone from CGEF reads this, please update some of the old banners from the original petition, and for anyone who wants to help on their own, here's the address: http://www.petitiononline.com/bbf_2004/
To remember bbf_2004, just remember Bring Back Futurama in 2004. That's how I came up with it in the first place.
Anyone who has a Futurama site, please advertise! link to here, to my site, or to the petition, but get as many people as humanely possible to sign this petition!
The link, again, is in my sig.
