According to Leela, Futurama Has Been Renewed

... Actress Katey Sagal (Peg Bundy, Gemma Teller, John Locke's squeeze) has said that Futurama, for which she provides the voice of Leela, has been renewed for an eighth season by Comedy Central. However, nothing official has been announced, so don't go spouting, "Good news everyone!" all over the place. Futurama's seventh season is scheduled to air this summer. [Vulture]

... If you have DirecTV, go ahead and skip to the next item. The final season of Friday Night Lights will premiere on NBC on April 15. Or you could just rent the DVDs, which come out on April 5. But don't tell me what happens! [Hitfix]

... Dawson's Diaries and Vampire Creek head honcho Kevin Williamson is working on The CW's Secret Circle, about a teenager who discovers she's a witch. It's based on the books by L.J. Smith, who also wrote the Vampire Diaries books. With Williamson on the project, it means his work on his other project, about people who investigate paranormal happenings, is on hold. [Deadline Hollywood]

... USA has announced that the tenth season of Law & Order: Criminal Intent will be its last, and that it will premiere on May 1. Also, In Plain Sight will return for its fourth season that day. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Comedy Central has ordered a pilot for Playing with Guns, with Danny Masterson (That '70s Show's Hyde) and Ethan Suplee (My Name is Earl) on board to star. The comedy follows a pair of BFFs who become suburban cops in order to avoid real work. And also to play with guns. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Everybody Loves Raymond executive producer Tucker Cawley, or as I like to call him, the creator of ABC's Hank, is back with another project at CBS. The network has ordered a pilot for The Assistants, about four young personal assistants to celebrities. [Deadline Hollywood]

... In "Not sure if want" news: MTV is bringing back Beavis and Butt-head this summer. The cynic in me wants to say this is a bad idea, as does the realist in me, the logical thinker in me, and the homicidal psychopath in me. [MTV]

Beavis and Butthead?? Yeah, that sounds like the worst comeback idea since Ren and Stimpy. My demented childhood mind liked the originals, but 'cmon guys, really....

Futurama forever! (I just mean until right before it's about to completely jump the shark, actually.) I'm so pleased it's back! It's nice that with an animated show, being cancelled doesn't mean never again. On the other hand, it's too bad that with an animated show, being cancelled doesn't mean never again. (Really? Beavis and Butthead?)

I'm glad that Criminal Intent has a set end date so they will be able to clue things up properly.

looking forward to how ever many seasons Futurama gets, also sad to see Friday Night Lights go.. i'll just watch the DVDs, there's no way i want to wait a week between each episode. I wish Universal would release a complete series Blu-ray set, I don't buy standard DVDs anymore. I admit I watched Beavis and Butthead when I was younger, even though i was barely allowed to.. but there's NO WAY this show should be brougt back. looking back, i see how absolutely ridiculous and stupid it was. Secret Circle sounds not so good but we'll see. nothing else interests me

I haven't watched B&B since I was 12.. but I do remember the movie kicking all kinds of ass. Hell, I'll watch it just for the sake of nostalgia.
Glad to hear Futurama is possibly coming back next year for season 8!

And that's all I care about, folks.

iheartfrosty is correct. There was a show on teen nick called The Assistants and it was about 4 twenty something assistants to a celebrity.

Since MTV doesn't air videos anymore, what will Beavis and Butthead do, talk at episodes of Jersey Shore and The Real World?

Wait, wasn't there a show on The N called The Assistants about the exact dame thing?
