    Cleveland doesn't really interest me all that much - I think that's kind of an odd choice for a spin-off.

    The Quagmire show would have been better :)

    IMHO,

    I love The Simpsons and hope it goes on forever.

    King Of The Hill is a great show, but it has said all it can say. There is no place to take these characters they have not been.

    The rest of the Fox animation is just not for me. I have never seen the humor in American Dad, Futurama, and especially Family Guy.

    However, the whole overpay for the NFL theory is supposed to be that it dumps viewers in a running long game into a cross-threaded schedule. CBS plays this card by delaying and thus cross-threading. But Fox just fills until it can start The Simpsons on time and goes from there with cartoons that seen to have little overlap with the NFL demographic. Why would not Fox have Fox News do a fair and ballanced clone of 60 Minutes, followed by some hour dramas.

    I recently heard that Adult Swim (Cartoon Network) is picking up KoTH.

    Hmm - but why should Fox become another "me too" network? IMHO they are really the only broadcast network that has been successful at introducing completely different, non-traditional shows. Many successful shows on other networks owe quite a lot to Fox for being willing to take the initial risks.

    And yes, I'm a 40-something male who is not ashamed to say he likes Futurama & Family Guy.

    :lol: I've always loved that line. Across the street from where I work there is a propane place. Since it's right across the street when we need a new propane tank for the forklift one of us usually just walks over and gets it instead of getting it delivered. Every time I walk into the place to sign the invoice for a tank swap I feel as if Hank Hill will walk out from the back room :)

    I'll also miss Lucky telling the story on how he got 10 million dollars by sueing Costco :D
