Cancellation Buzz: Are Cartoons the Most Savable TV Shows? - Featured

In light of the announcement that Futurama has been officially reborn , the previous resurrection of Family Guy , and the recent renewal of The Simpsons , the longest running show in primetime history, for 2 more seasons , it makes me wonder - are cartoons the most savable TV shows? Now of course this becomes an issue of the obvious in that you can't very well resurrect another favorite show like Friends years later because the actors have moved on, they've gotten older, and they can't hold up the same sort of storylines that were entertaining when the show started. But all those facts seem to point to that when a show has been canceled too soon like in the cases of Family Guy , Futurama , Firefly , Arrested Development , Jericho , Moonlight , Pushing Daisies , Life and oh so many more, are the only ones we can really have hope for the cartoons that could be brought back relatively easily at any time? For instance, Jericho returned quickly after big fan efforts, but couldn't sustain itself with viewership and interest, but do you expect another show like Firefly could have done better for itself if it were brought back? Also, in fan efforts including our own Cancellation Buzz , we were able to help out in saving shows we love like Chuck - but like Jericho, this was saved during cancellation rumors and/or directly after original cancellation. So are cartoons our only canceled favorites for which we can carry a torch of hope for more than a few months (or even moments) after their cancellation? Share your thoughts!

Futurama's "New" season

The "new" episode which was aired in March was actually 'Benders Big Score'. I was fairly disappointed... I'd watched the movie online ages before it was on TV and was expecting an actual episode, as in the beginning of Season 6. I figured it would've been on Fox, but apparently it was on Comedy Central... So I missed watching it. I know that Groening has made 4 Futurama movies; I've read that the intent was to release these in straight to DVD format but also to cut them up into episodes that are slightly altered to appear as if they're stand alone, yet following a general storyline. Comedy Central has entered into an Agreement with 20th Century Fox to begin airing Futurama in syndication and to air new episodes as they become available. "The Beast with a Billion Backs" is set to be released on DVD June 24, 2008. It will probably be shown on TV in August I'd imagine. Keep your fingers crossed, folks. If we're *really* lucky, Futurama might make a full comeback. As it is, the show seems to be stuck in a state of limbo. I can't complain. ANY new Futurama is GOOD Futurama!


Did the new episode actually air on sunday? because I can't find any details about it whatsoever. Thanks
