The tale of "Futurama's" dramatic revival roughly follows that same path that "Family Guy" did.
In both cases, the shows have been successfully airing on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim late-night programming block. They both also turned into hot-selling DVD box sets.
"Family Guy" returned to Fox earlier this year, while last fall, Comedy Central outbid Adult Swim for the license to air all 52 episodes of "Futurama" and whatever new episodes might one day be produced.
Bite my shiny metal ass, FOX!
