Good point, EspanolBot. That fact that FOX haven't carried on Futurama despite it's obvious popularity in terms of CN ratings and DVD sales suggests one of two things. Either FOX are really, really dumb, or their reasons for cancelling Futurama aren't financially motivated.
As happy as I am for the succes Futurama have on CN, we have to remember the C in CN stand for Cartoon. Meaning that the people who watch Adult Swim are allready cartoon-fans. Transfering the ratings from the Adult Swim audience to a general segment, such as the one that watch FOX, isn't as straight-forward as we would like it to be.
And as far as I've heard the Futurama DVD's are making good sales, but not Family Guy numbers (why, only the Gods know).
