Looks like FOX decided NOT to be greedy for once in their miserable lives, a pity they don't act like this when it comes to Futurama...a far superior show.

Anyway, there ya go people, the Simpsons are once again going to dominate the screens with more stale, tired, cliqued "comedy" that is topped every week by South Park and even some miserable examples of reality telivision.

I miss Futurama so much...

I miss even more the possible storylines of a relationship between Leela and Fry that we missed...

I mean...look at the last episode...

It was the beginning of something great...

Simpsons just really REALLY needs to be finished already. It should have ended a couple seasons ago actually.

All the good shows leave this Earth when there not wanted...some choose to stay and fight on against the overated crap

Thankyou...and shove off.

I never watched Futurama when it was on Fox, but I do watch it now that it's on Teletoon here in Canada...and honestly I can say, from what I've seen, whoever decided to cancel that show deserves THE biggest kick in the groin.

At least animation is still on prime time TV. Simpsons may not be what they were, but it's still better than most of the crap on TV.

Oh c'mon people, The Simpsons do not suck! They are just far too inferior when compared to shows, such as Futurama and ESPECIALLY Family Guy. At least new episodes of Family Guy are coming in 2005. That is something we can all be happy for.

I have been watching the first three seasons of "The Simpsons" lately and they just make me sad. Why? BECAUSE THEY WERE SO INCREDIBLY HILARIOUS!!! How could they screw a godlike show like that so much? The new seasons (10+) have about one good laugh in each episode, the rest of them is just dumb. Cancel it, please!

I've said it before. Seasons 3 to about 6 or 7 are nothing but pure GENIUS! Then everything fell apart.

I remember season 8 and 9 being quite enjoyable, too. One big mistake they made was to erase the family aspect of the show. The serious moments in the show were really good and important imo.

ok here are some great Shows that were Canned before their time.

FUTURAMA
Clerks the animated Series (God Bless DVD)
The Critic
That show with Adam West as a cop (I forget the name you can probably catch it on Trio)


And I don't care for Family Guy a 22 minute dick and Fart joke isn't my forte

Luckily we still have Chappelle's Show (its on comedy central for you white people j/k)

This show has the equivilency of an old, flat can of pop. It usta be really good and carbonated, but you take a drink now and....ughhh....There's still the same taste to it, but you cringe as it sits in your mouth and you try figure out whether or not to even bother swallowing it.

Seasons 1 - 8 = Genius.
Seasons 9 - 10 = Good.
Seasons 11 - 14 = Slightly Below Average but still better then most stuff on TV
Season 15 = Terrible

I've stopped watching now, which makes this the first season I won't be watching since 1991. Sad, really. I'm not going to waste time and energy bitching about how the show has gone down hill, since all shows eventually do, and this one has given me countless hours of entertainment, and still does through repeats and DVD's. Fox won't cancel it, since it's still a huge cashcow for them.

I never liked Futurama. It just didn't appeal to me at all. Too each their own, though.

Wait, you don't like family guy because it's all dick and fart jokes? Umm, so is Clerks and most of Smith's things. Kinda contradicted yerslef there. :P

Yeah, the last couple of seasons have been kinda funky--mainly because they've gotten away from what made Simpsons so great: Real-Life Disfunctional Family Issues. The last couple of episodes I've seen have made a desperate attempt to get back to that, but I don't know if it's enough to save the season.

It's a sad day when you can't even laugh at the Treehouse of Terror specials.

Errr...what?

The show is anything BUT that, and last I checked, half of Kevin Smith's movies are great films DISGUISED as "Dick and Fart Jokes"

Oh my god BABY BLUES! WHY THE HELL DID THEY CANCEL THAT?

I have to keep reading the comic strip knowing full well it had one moment as an animated classic..and then snuffed out mercilessly, and unlike Home Movies (ANOTHER show that was brought to a sad end) it will never get re-newed.

Family Guy was, is and will be an amazing show. The Simpsons are still watchable, but their time has long passed. The only reason people watch it now is because they're used to it, not because it's just so funny. I think Family Guy really is the next level of cartoon comedy, simply because it doesn't have as much censorship and restrictions on the content - making it much more offensive but also much more hilarious.

Clerks...THE CARTOON wasn't a Dick and Fart Joke it was different then all the movies

Family Guy is a piece of crap in my eyes, Everyone only likes it now because its on CN when it was on FOX it was nothing.


on another unrelated note: I just saw Punisher and it sucked ass.

No, I'm pretty sure I liked Family Guy when it aired on FOX just as much as when it does now on Cartoon Network.

MY GOD! I love Mission Hill! They played it for a bit on Teletoon here in Canada, but then took it off again. For some reason they still play the piece of sh*t UnderGrads almost every night though. Not only is it a terrible and unfunny show, but it has something like 13 episodes. Keep in mind the shows has been airing for at least 2 years now on a NIGHTLY BASIS. I'm just sick of it. They should have kept playing Mission Hill. At least it was funny. They did the same thing to Clone High. I loved that show.

I think The Simpsons is still a good show, but they need to get some new script writers who can put some life back into the stories. I also think they need to be alittle more consistant with the characters.
I remember awhile back when they had an episode where Marge got mugged and it scarred her so much she wouldn't leave the house, until later when she took up body building. The only problem with it was it contradicted the episode where she became a police officer, which you think would've left her able to defend hersel in the first place.

I'd rather drink flat pop than watch anything on NBC or ABC.

I haven't watched the Simpsons in while due to all my time watching TV goes into watching TMNT or Adult Swim (TV just isn't a big part of my life anymore).

As for Family Guy, Futurama, Baby Blues, Clerks (animated), and Baby Blues... they're all great shows in my eyes.
