Futurama

Futurama is going off the air for a second time, which is a shame because it’s probably one of the smartest shows on television to ever air an episode about a robot trying to find his magical ass. Seriously, did that confuse anyone else? Anyway, to help send the show off properly, Comedy Central and The Nerdist are coming together to air a pre and post-episode show hosted by Chris Hardwick and the cast of Futurama. The A/V Club reports …

In the two half-hour episodes that will stream live on Comedy Central’s Futurama page and the Nerdist YouTube channel, Chris Hardwick—currently the host of The Nerdist, The Talking Dead, Talking Bad, and Talking To Some Dick Who Keeps Bringing Up Shipmates—will similarly preside over a panel that includes series creator Matt Groening and executive producer David X. Cohen, along with cast members Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Phil LaMarr, and Lauren Tom. (Katey Sagal is, presumably, tied into some sort of exclusive post-show chat deal with that Sons Of Anarchy thing?)

So Futurama got brought back due to fan love, only to go off the air again before it wore out its goodwill? … Hint hint, Family Guy.
