I'm totally pissed
fox just had to show all sorts of football scores and re-cap shit right after the game.  Then they show futurama intro, then a commercial block, then they finally tell me that I'm screwed and don't get to see the first part.  So I got part of fry, and all of leela.  All I wanted to see was the bender one, why couldn't it of been last.
I guess I'll have to wait for the rerun, if they do.
I know I can download it but I hate the quality of it.

anyone else out there get cut short?

yea it totally sucked

and here in central timezone it's on a 6pm

what added to the insult tho was all the bullshit after the game had ended, I nderstand they pay a lot of money to show the actual agmes, but all the post game, and scores really pissed me off, and then a commercial block!
The episode probably could have run from the begining if they started it as soon as the game ended.
oh well
Go Bears!

Still, even though I got to see a funny play by Keith Traylor, it was no excuse to cut the first act of the show, the one most people were looking forward to. I wouldn't mind watching Futurama from 6:30 or even 7:00. And not many people are that interested in King of the Hill.

Actually king of the hill is HUGE in texas, or so I've heard,  aparently that's what it's like down there.

and it wasn't the bears game that pre-empted the show, was the rams game, at least here.

if it was da bears at least it wouldn't have been all that shitty.

go bears
