Futurama Watch: Season 7, Episode 20 - Calculon 2.0
Futurama made what could be its final trip to Comic-Con last week and, while that in itself made the panel a twice in a lifetime event, Matt Groening also announced that the Planet Express crew would be making a special delivery to Springfield. That’s right, a Futurama-The Simpsons crossover! And considering the quality of "Saturday Morning Fun Pit," the episode that aired during the event, it sadly might be the right time for the former to call it quits. Or did "Calculon 2.0" manage to reboot our faith in the show?
Futurama 2013 Comic-Con Panel Live Blog
Bad news everybody, Futurama is making what is probably its last appearance at Comic-Con with the seventh and final season of the animated comedy is coming to an end very soon. It's doooooomed! But before the show goes out in a blaze of glory, they also want to ensure an epic final panel. On the dais for the special occasion is most of Futurama's voice cast, including Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Phil LaMarr, and Lauren Tom.
Workaholics 2013 Comic-Con Panel Recap
In the few years I've covered Comic Con, I don't think I've ever seen a panel as raucous and funny as the Workaholics panel. This year marks the second appearance for the Comedy Central hit series at SDCC and, after easily filling a smaller room last year, Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, Anders Holm and and Kyle Newacheck were bumped to the Indigo Ballroom. And they had no trouble packing the house or bringing it down.
Futurama Watch: Season 7, Episode 18 - The Inhuman Torch
There hasn’t been a truly excellent episode of Futurama during this half of the seventh season (so far) but the animated comedy is at least getting better every week. The recent improvement in enjoyability might have something to do with the series shifting the focus to everyone’s favorite robotic bad-boy for the second straight installment. And “The Inhuman Torch" even manages to make Bender a genuine, selfless hero. Who would have thought?
James Franco To Get Roasted At Comedy Central Roast This Summer
Picture James Franco looking relaxed and happy as he's surrounded by friends and comedians (and those who are both) who are mercilessly poking fun of him for the benefit of the crowd and the audience viewing at home. That's likely what we're in for later this summer when Franco steps up as Roastee for The Comedy Central Roast of James Franco. Comedy Central announced the big news today, noting that he'll add the moniker of Roastee to his ever-growing list of accomplishments.
Futurama Watch: Season 7, Episode 17 - Forty Percent Leadbelly
For some reason, once Futurama was resurrected by Comedy Central they started splitting the animated comedy into two-part seasons and, just before it returned to small-screens for the second half of the seventh, the network also revealed that this run would be the series’ final stretch. Meaning, after “Forty Percent Leadbelly," last night’s very promising turn, only a single-digit number of new Futuramas remain! Forever! Probably!
Futurama Watch: Season 7, Episode 16 - T: The Terrestrial
Futurama returned for the second half of the seventh season last week and, just like the premiere for the first, did so with a one hour special airing back-to-back episodes. Unfortunately, the two installments that kicked off Season 7B, weren’t nearly as funny or sweet as the pair that aired for 7A. By no means terrible, just not the quality fans have come to expect from Futurama, one of the 823543 wonders of the future world
Futurama Watch: Season 7B Premiere - 2-D Blacktop And Fry and Leela's Big Fling
Good news everybody! Futurama is back! Bad news everybody! This is the final season for the animated comedy. Uh, again. It was recently announced that Season 7(B) would be the series’ last hurrah on Comedy Central but there’s still hope that Matt Groening’s show will find a new home. In the meantime, there are still 13 unseen episodes to enjoy. Well, 11 after last night’s premiere.
Seth MacFarlane To Appear In Futurama Season 7 Episode
No matter which character he will play, MacFarlane should be a good fit for Futurama’s Season 7, which will be chock full of other guest stars, as well. Notably MacFarlane’s ex-girlfriend and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is set to how up in the show’s penultimate episode as a flower stand owner who may have an unlikely romance with Zoidberg. Other guest stars include Larry Bird, George Takei, Adam West and more.
The Colbert Report To Resume After Death Of Stephen Colbert's Mother
Recently, Comedy Central's other flagship program, The Colbert Report opted to take a break, as well, in response to the death of host Stephen Colbert’s mother. However, reports indicate that The Colbert Report will return to its scheduled programming tonight.

Watch: John Oliver Takes The Lead And Delivers Laughs At The Daily Show
"Welcome to The Daily Show. I am John Oliver and let's all just acknowledge for a moment that this is weird," Oliver said in his opening for last night's episode. And he's kind of right. He isn't the first new host of The Daily Show, but considering Jon Stewart's been doing it for more than a decade it is a little strange to see someone new (temporarily) serving as host of the series. But I suppose fans will get used to the shift over time as the summer progresses. And based on Oliver's open, it looks like we're in for a funny summer.
Paul McCartney Will Headline Special Episode Of The Colbert Report
Paul McCartney is never one to say no to a great promotional opportunity and next week he plans to head to The Colbert Report for an epic hour-long event. The show is known for occasionally putting together musical segments, but when McCartney hits the stage on June 12, he’ll be the man of the hour and will contribute both music and an interview for an hour on the show. McCartney’s appearance will mark the second time The Colbert Report has featured a one-hour musical extravaganza.

Comedy Central's been good to Amy Schumer. The comedian has been featured in numerous Comedy Central Roasts a stand-up special, and more recently, she got her own comedy series on the cable channel. The show is currently amidst its first season and Comedy Central has announced that they've renewed it for a second, which they expect to get on the air next year.
Comedian Hannibal Buress Gets Multi-Platform Deal With Comedy Central
“This is really exciting,” said Buress, sarcastic hubris intact. “I can finally quit my day job at Quiznos. People talk down about the Illuminati a lot but this is proof that membership has its benefits.”
