Review: Futurama returns to Comedy Central

Review: Futurama returns to Comedy Centra "As 'Family Guy' did when Fox resurrected it three years after canceling that show (Fox canceled a lot of comedies in the early '00s that the network would probably like back now), we open with a few jokes about the long time off and the new regular home on cable. (After a trip through a well-traveled wormhole causes Professor Farnsworth to laugh, he says, 'It's sort of a comedy central channel.') There are probably too many of those jokes, especially since the movies (the last of which ended on a cliffhanger that tomorrow's first episode resolves) means it hasn't been that long since Fry (Billy West), Leela (Katey Sagal), Bender (John DiMaggio) and company have been featured in original adventures on television, and on this channel in particular."
