Seven years after its last original episode aired on Fox, the sixth season premiere of "Futurama" last June led COMEDY CENTRAL to its best Thursday prime ever among young men.  "Futurama" focuses on the life of Philip Fry (Billy West), a 25-year-old pizza delivery boy who accidentally freezes himself on December 31, 1999 and wakes up 1,000 years later with a fresh start at life and a "diverse" new group of friends including Leela (Katey Sagal), a tough but lovely one-eyed alien and Bender (John DiMaggio), a robot who possesses human characteristics and flaws. The series aired for five seasons on Fox (1999 to 2003), earning Emmy® nominations each season while winning three times, including "Outstanding Animated Program" in 2002.  "Futurama," created by Matt Groening and developed by Groening and David X. Cohen, is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television, with Rough Draft Studios, Inc. contributing the animation.

COMEDY CENTRAL's latest animated hit series, "Ugly Americans," is back for a second season of all new episodes.  Tune in to follow New York City’s Department of Integration social worker, Mark Lilly, as he helps integrate his students into life in the Big Apple.  Mark has a lot on his plate between hanging out with Randall, his zombie roommate and dealing with Callie, his hot demonic girlfriend.  Plus, his wizard office mate, Leonard, and demon boss, Twayne, don’t make his life any easier.  Whether he’s avoiding his evil clone, being best man at a co-worker’s long delayed wedding, or participating in an End of Days “Pre-Enactment”, Mark experiences city life like no one has ever never seen before.  With a cast of characters as wild as New York City itself, this season of "Ugly Americans" is sure to be filled with even crazier adventures and bigger laughs.
