Fox Network Once Again Admits It Was Wrong

The Fox TV network in the US must be run by a bunch of complete assholes.

They have a habit of producing some great shows and then canceling them after only a few episodes. They generally say something about it being due to low viewing figures which is probably true, but is caused by Fox moving shows around in their schedule on an almost weekly basis.

Past victims of Fox include:

Wonderfalls - a brilliantly funny show about a girl who has inanimate objects telling her to do things - Cancelled after 13 episodes to make room for reality shit show called 'The Swan'. They didn't even bother to show the last 5 episodes so desperate were they to bin the series.

Firefly - Jos Whedon's brilliant sci-fi offering. Fox decided it was not 'Sci-fi enough' and cancelled it after 15 episodes. They only bothered to show 12 of them though. It has since been resurected in the equally brilliant movie Serenity. Hopefully the TV series will be recomissioned.

Family Guy - Similar to The Simpsons at first glance but a totally different program when it comes to the humour. Fox cancelled this because.......who the hell knows why. This program is hillarious. I mean, seriously funny. After it was axed DVD sales of the series were so high that the Fox assholes decided to bring the series back. This is the first time they admitted they were wrong.

Futurama - From the producers of The Simpsons, the tale of a pizza delivery boy frozen in cryogenic suspension on New Years eve 2000 for 1000 years. This is once again a brilliantly funny cartoon that should never have been cancelled and it is Futurama that is the reason for this post.

According to Ain't It Cool News Futurama is back!! Apparently, 26 new episodes will be produced. They don't know when they will air but who cares, I can wait!

Reading between the lines, Fox asking for new Fururama episodes is actually them saying "I'm sorry but we are a bunch of souless brain dead network executives who would not know good TV if it fell on us. Please make more Futurama in the hope that the devil will be a little nicer to us when we are burning in hell for all eternity."

As a footnote, 'The Swan' is a reality show that takes sad ugly middle age American women and gives them plastic surgery to make them look vaguely attractive in the hope they will feel at least a little self worth. What a great show to cancel Wonderfalls for!!
