    Which is the better network for Futurama? I think Comedy Central cause it doesn't have to compete with Family Guy or the Simpsons, sure Comedy Central is the home of another great show South Park (my favorite show) but more people watch Family Guy and the Simpsons so it would have more competition and South Park only gets an average of 2.8-3.0 million viewers per new episodewhereas Family Guy and the Simpsons get an average of 6.5-10.0 million viewers per new episode. What are your thoughts on which network is a better fit for Futurama?

    Comedy Central for more freedom like more crazier stuff than on local stations. FOX was dumb to put it at earlier hour.

    I think it's great that it's not in any immediate danger with the competing shows, and Comedy Central are definitely being kind to Futurama which is good that it's got on its good side. FOX is quite packed and Futurama would've had to squeeze in to get a slot in its time table. The only advantage of having Futurama on FOX was that they held Futurama back from getting too into the Adult humor, I may be the only one, but I think Futurama's humor is far better without too much adult humor.

    I would like to see it on FOX again, since that's where it started. CC has more room to air the Futurama during the week and on the weekends. Too bad it's not on both networks.

    But FOX will axe it again. If FOX really wants to show it, then it can't be placed before 8:00 PM. Put it after The Simpsons!

    Plus it's almost clear to me that one of the reasons FOX canned Futurama was because they were scared of it topping the Simpsons. Where as Comedy Central likes Futurama and didn't hesitate when they decided to take it on in its resurrection.

    If Fox allowed South Park, it'd be cancelled probably just after the movie.

    I don't see how anyone could even imply it was better on Fox. Fox never took proper care of Futurama and it's doubtful that it ever would.

    Unless it's Simpsons or Seth Macfarlane's shows.
