For those that care...

From TV Guide issue August 2-8
"Futurama's Final Fontier
Its Fox run is ending, but the cult-hit cartoon is already a cable winner

It's a conundrum worthy of Professor Farnsworth himself: How did Futurama blossom into a cable smash after a bumpy five-season run on Fox?

Set in the 31st century, the animated series has proven to be a ratings success for Cartoon Netwrok, averaging 2.4 million viewers a night in June. (the show returns to the Network's lineup on November 2.) While that number-what executive producer David X. Cohen calls the show's 'hardcore group of fans'-is little more than half of the 5.5 million viewers the series averaged on Fox last season, it's still an impressive number for cable. The show has also shown promise in reruns on TBS, where it has been airing weekdays at 2pm/ET since July 7.

Fox has scheduled the final original episode for Sunday, August 10, at 7pm/ET. But Cohen believes the series might come back at some point, possibly for Cartoon Network, which has expressed intrest. 'In my dream world, Futurama would become a Star Trek-like phenomenon,'he says. 'It would keep growing over the years, and suddenly theres are movies and we're signing autographs for $3."

Nice little piece though they failed to mention Futurama's recent Emmy nomination or the incredible sales of the DVD set, (let alone how huge the show is over in Europe.)

Or why it had a "bumpy" run on Fox.

For those that care, I've scanned the article. It's got a nice graphic too.

yes, even though there is very little chance of it coming back, it is good to see that someone cares. (tbs, cn, etc.)

I think there still is a chance for it to come back. Matt/David have expressed alot of interest in a movie in recent interviews.
