    Now that's something I didn't see coming. Not that I'm complaining, especially after Netflix removed the entire Fox era.

    Huh. Well this is alright by me, if a bit unexpected.

    Syfy is no stranger to adult animation having aired the forgotten Tripping the Rift, Starship Trooper: Roughnecks, and more than a few anime. I'm happy they're being more open with their schedule but having it still fit within' the network's theme. I hope this leads to good things for Syfy in the "future"

    It was about time to see Futurama jump to another channel.

    This is the most animation we've seen on Syfy since Ani-Monday was killed off.

    Wasn't expecting this since Comedy isn't really Syfy's forte.

    Remember Chiller's anime block that lasted 2 weeks? I don't think NBC Universal is interested.

    Is that the reason the first few seasons were taken off of Netflix? Bleh...

    First FOX, then Adult Swim, then Comedy Central, and now this. Futurama sure gets around.

    With Futurama being on Saturday mornings, it's almost like Syfy has a Saturday morning cartoon block for adults. If they got some anime OVAs/movies from Discotek like I suggested in another post about Syfy in the past, maybe they could turn it into a brand/an actual thing people would get excited about.

    Really, what do they have to lose? They show random marathons of CSI because they don't have anything else to show.

    So is the show moving from Comedy Central to Syfy or will it continue to air on both networks?

    I don't know. Maybe the show is leaving Comedy Central, or maybe said network still has slots for the show.

    We'll just have to wait until November 11.

    That was more of a lack of care...
