Syfy Acquires Matt Groening’s Animated ‘Futurama’


‘Futurama’ Crossover Lifts ‘The Simpsons’

Crossovers are working well for Fox this season. After big ratings for a Family Guy-The Simpsons crossover to start the season, Simpsons got a boost from another crossover last night. Futurama’s characters dropped by for an episode that averaged a 2.9 adults 18-49 rating, up 45% over last week’s 2.0. Of course, Simpsons also had an NFL lead-in last night, which it did not have last week. But by 7:30, that lead-in had faded from a 5.3 at 7 to a 3.1, so it wasn’t as big an advantage as the show usually gets from the NFL.
