Yeah, AD is basically the exact same show, just with slightly more political humor. Seth said so himself when he was on the Late Show that one time.
But, seriously folks did Fox think that Adult Swim has more power over Fox's shows than Fox itself!? Of course it does!Listen to this announcement that was mentioned from an admin on their forums:
On the acquisitions front, such high-profile shows as Family Guy and Futurama continue to provide top ratings for Adult Swim. Among recent ratings/delivery highlights, the March 1 telecast of Futurama (11:30 p.m.) scored Cartoon Network’s highest adults 18-34 (1,260,000) and men 18-34 (826,000) deliveries ever for a single telecast.
It may bot be as high ratings as what was mentioned in the past, but if it weren't for [as].. well, there would be no ratings. Plus,a campaign thread has been started on the Adult Swim forums as well. Myself being one of it's leaders. Sadly, most nerds are not welcome there.
Otherwise, I would welcome most of you to the opportunity. It's clear that the fanbase is still going strong. Live on, live mighty! Viva la Futurama!!
