Can't Get Enough Futurama

Return of the Family Guy?

OK, sorry, it's not Futurama. But since it had a similar fate as Futurama in most regards, I thought I'd bring it up anyway.

USA Today reports that Family Guy has a renewed chance of being revived for a 2005 season. The strong DVD sales (quite some stronger than Futurama's at least in the US) and the ratings on Cartoon Network (roughly Futurama level) seem to have been noticed by FOX 18 months after cancelling the show. Chairman Sandy Grushow reportedly called the series a 'late-blooming phenomenon that may have aired before its time'. Everyone make of that what they want...

Before you get your hopes for Futurama up too much, remember that Family Guy was quite some cheaper to produce per episode. But of course, you can always hope and then hope some more still.
