Are there any characters that you think are getting too much screen time this season? I would say that Scruffy and HedonismBot both are. HedonismBot didn't need to be in any episodes (Other than The Late Philip J Fry, and possibly Law and Oracle.) And Scruffy is losing the whole point of his character. (Again, he had some great moments in episodes like The Prisoner of Benda and Neutopia).

Thoughts? Are there any other characters that seem to be getting too much focus?

I understand where you're coming from with Scruffy, but Hedonism Bot?! I've barely seen him... :hmpf:

I don't think so, since Scruffy is only around for the ensemble episodes like Neutopia and Prisoner of Benda.  Apart from that he has like one or two lines an episode, if he turns up.   

And Hedonismbot is the same, he just turns up to give a funny line or two.   I wouldn't say either of them are getting too much focus, because neither of them have ever been the focus of an episode.   A character I would say is getting too much screentime is Bender (not that we don't love him) but there are times when the show could be called "The Bender Show", since he does have a tendancy to be the focus of most episodes, or steal the spotlight when the episode is focused on another character, like say Leela or Amy or Hermes.
