finally, now end simpsons, and dudes, family guy and south park and even american dad surpassed simpsons and futurama years ago. Simpsons has derailed into a politically correct crapshow, while futurama was honestly never THAT good, seth macfarlane is pretty much a comedic genius and his shows are hilarious and keep being that way. Lets not even discuss how much better south park is.

It is a sad day for TV. It was an awesome show, hopefully it'll be like last time where they were just like "JK! It's coming back".

Damn. Damnit. So many GREAT episodes & well written/acted/directed characters & stories. It should NEVER have been cancelled the 1st time. Fucking dildofaces that run stuff & make such dirty donkey ball licking decisions anyway.
If you can think of a FUTURAMA quote or meme or some sort of homage then the writers & FUTURAMA chars did their job :) Here's one most WoW players will recognize~ plz add your own in respect & tribute <3

It's obvious that people enjoy shows like the simpsons/ south park etc more than futurama as they are still on the air, so it can't be that great can it :P
I don't know why people say x,y or z shows should be cancelled...just don't watch them if you don't like them,there is like 999 other channels it's not hat hard to figure out...just watch shows you enjoy and let other people do the same... It's same with people that complain about geordie shoreshore/ jersey shore...people complain about them so much and the shows just gain popularity because more people are talking about them... if you don't like it just don't watch it -.-
Too bad. Other than that stupid nature episode that I think was the last one, I enjoyed most of the newer seasons.
I don't understand how a show can keep getting canceled, not picked up, and keep going. Do these networks have bipolar, ever-changing minds? I don't get it.
It's a good show, it always has been, but how can one even expect this to be the end? Considering the nature of the show, it almost has to go out with a bang (probably literally).

Wait, without Futurama, what is Al Gore gonna do?
I live in Germany and we generally get to see new episodes a bit later since they need to be dubbed first.
But I agree that Futurama and Simpsons have been going downhill in the newer seasons, and the best picture to explain my feelings is the following:
I'm glad our channel airing Simpsons (ProSieben) shows older episodes regularly, because I find them to be funnier in an original kind of way.
Even though I've seen most of them a couple of times now... the new episodes just seem to be on the brink of retardation.
Now Futurama's descent is similar for me. Partly because the german dubbing suddenly decided that Hermes, who did not have a jamaican accent in the first seasons, now needed one. Without changing the voice actor, mind you. Same actor, now with fake accent. Irritating.
But that's beside the points, I could just as well watch the original dubbing.
The content, however. See above.
I don't really want to throw in this comparison in case anyone feels offended, but I've also seen this happening with Spongebob Squarepants.
The first seaon(s?) had so much hidden adult humour in it, well thought out jokes and references, the characters were loveable.
But the newer seasons try to cater to the youngest generation in which utter retardation, violence and schadenfreude are somewhat "cool".
I guess that's the natural decline of every show sooner or later. Eventually you run out of ideas, but you can't just make a full stop.

Meh I remember not liking it around a year or so again. I don't know how it is lately but if it kept going the way it was then this is no surprise
That's fine by me i loved the show when it was on fox was bummed it was canceled then. When CC renewed it i thought it would be awesome but it wasn't the same show just couldn't get attached to the characters again.
It should have been canceled a long time ago. Some things should just end before they turn bad.
I love futurama and south park. Although family guy stoped being funny along time ago and i love south park to much to say what im about to say... this is going to hurt me alot but, south park is heading in the direction of the simpsons. It started after Cthulhu and friends and i think matt and trey should just put it out of its misery. I think they are cleaver writers but the show is just loosing its charm, but its miles better than family guy. Seth mcfarlen is a hack who thinks hes funny and cleaver but is in fact is very unoriginal.
Some of you people take your cartoon tv watching too seriously. No reason to get mad or try to compare X and X like we're doing some PC vs Mac sorta thing.
