When FXX officially kicks off at 7 a.m. Monday morning, the reception begins to go out and the game footage interchanges with an image of a black leather couch. Suddenly, the black leather couch begins to move and out from the seams bursts a very hot and a very naked  Danny DeVito  in a classic  It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia   clip .

'Futurama' isn't completely over: Creators talk 'Simpsons' crossover

"Futurama" might have aired its final episode on Sept. 4, but the show isn't gone forever. There are plans for a crossover with "The Simpsons" that is currently being developed and will continue to keep the "Futurama" characters alive and well -- for one more episode, at least. During the "Futurama Live" finale event at the YouTube Space LA, Zap2it spoke with "Futurama" creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen about the planned crossover. As the finale episode "Meanwhile" ended on a pretty uplifting but conclusive note, the pair admitted that the "Simpsons" crossover won't take place after the finale chronologically. It's just tricky to figure out when it actually does take place in the "Futurama" timeline. "This is what I would say: I mean, we were canceled for several years. I think the crossover episode probably happened then, because can you imagine how many exciting adventures happened in those years that we never heard... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/09/futurama-isnt-completely-over-creators-talk-simpsons-crossover.html

Futurama's final episode makes me a Fry and Leela shipper at last

Futurama uses its last episode, "Meanwhile," wisely. It fixes something that has bothered me from the beginning of the show, and shows us the beauty of true love.  Read More...   http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/io9/full/~3/WfY62ncpw2o/futuramas-final-episode-makes-me-a-fry-and-leela-shipp-1255883809

'Futurama' series finale: Did 'Meanwhile' prove to be a worthwhile second conclusion?

Well, "Futurama" fans, the end has come -- for a second time.Resurrection can only last so long and, so, it's time to say goodbye to Matt Groening's cult classic comedy once more. On Wednesday (Sept. 4), "Futurama" signed off for good (or did it?) with "Meanwhile," an episode centered on Fry (Billy West) finally growing the nerve to propose to Leela (Katey Sagal). This being "Futurama," of course, things involved some sort of futuristic high-jinks and did not go smoothly. But was it the ending the show deserved? For a show that got the boot from original home FOX in 2003 before rising from the ashes on cable in 2008, it seemed only fitting that the series finale focus so heavily on characters dying over and over, while trying to find a way to reverse said death.After breaking the universe (because of course Fry would), there was an bittersweet beauty in watching Fry and Leela... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/09/futurama-series-finale-did-meanwhile-prove-to-be-a-worthwhile-second-conclusion.html

'Futurama' series finale: Fry and Leela get a twisted happy ending

Futuristic delivery guy Philip J. Fry (voice of Billy West) finally gets his happy ending with the lovely Leela (voice of Katey Sagal), albeit with dire consequences for the rest of the universe, as "Futurama" ends its long run Wednesday, Sept. 4, on Comedy Central."We wanted to push the Fry and Leela relationship to its conclusion," executive producer David X. Cohen, who co-created "Futurama" with Matt Groening of "The Simpsons," tells Zap2it. "If this really is our last episode, we wanted to have a payoff for this story that has been bubbling on and off for the last 13 years. We decided to give fans Fry and Leela's wedding, although, of course, in a twisted sci-fi way."If Cohen sounds a little uncertain whether his show is really ending, you have to cut the guy some slack. He's been here before, but this animated series -- which premiered on Fox back in 1999, then found new... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/09/futurama-series-finale-fry-and-leela-get-a-twisted-happy-ending.html

Futurama proves that I'm dead inside

There are plenty of ways to find out that you've moved past the point of basic compassion for humans, but the most embarrassing is enlightenment-by-TV-show. Sadly, that's what I've had to deal with while watching Fry interact with his family in "Game of Tones."   Read More...   http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/io9/full/~3/vYFwHGY2ibg/futurama-proves-that-im-dead-inside-1146041097
