Well, it's true... unfortunately, FOX has decided that a year-old Simpsons episode is a bigger draw than a fresh Futurama. So, if you tune into your local affiliate at 7:00PM (6:00 central) you'll see "Grift of the Magi".

Now repeat after me... "May the chief programmer of FOX rot in hell now and forever and for all eternity."

Jesus Crap, that's the worst thing I've ever heard. I think I'm going to puke!
Yep, I was right.
Oh, well, it would probably have been preempted by some game anyway. May the chief programmer of FOX rot in hell now and forever and for all eternity.

I'm talking about next week. If the rumor is true, we won't get to see "A Tale of Two Santas" at ALL this year.

May the chief programmer of FOX grow like an onion, with his head in the ground and his feet in the air!

I cannot believe this! How will Fox try to promote a new Show which will probably earn their money, when there are no Simpsons anymore, if they don't get their customers (viewers) to get used to the show?

This sounds really bad. Considering this, it might be possible, if not even probable, that Malcolm's sunday-timeslot will be filled with some other show than Futurama. (According to The Outlet FOX is considering to move Malcolm from Sunday to Wednesday.)

So are we talking about Sunday the 17th here? thats sucks! 2 weeks in a row without futurama. Just when it seems like Fox cant do anything worse (football, election, preemption) they go and fuck over all us loyal die-hard futurama fans AGAIN!
THIS HAS TO STOP!!!

rot in hell and i dont even watch anything on fox anymre

anchovies become endangerd or
