I thought the one-hour "episode" was/were decent (hate when shows do that; make it a full long one). Some funny parts, but not as great as the previous one. My DVR cut out the visual (but the sound continued) when Farnsworth commented on their uniforms in the store. Did I miss anything awesome over those 30-60 seconds?
Ugh, that sucks! Try your On Demand or Hulu or something as there were a lot. Dune movie costumes, a 2001: A Space Odyssey Pan Am uniform, a Classic Trek red shirt, Zoidberg in Stormtrooper armor, Farnsworth in the Zardoz costume, and Leela as Barbarella.

And Futurama is cancelled again. Comedy Central announced today that they are done with the show after the end of this season. The producers are looking at other stations to carry the show beyond this season, but it seems doubtful at the moment.
What does Comedy Central have that's better? Not counting TDS and Colbert, of course.
The network has forgotten that they're supposed to be funny. 99% of their shows are "edgy," but without the actual humor. South Park and Chapelle sorta gave them the wrong impression. Sure, those shows are (or were) edgy as hell, but they're funny. I watch something like Tosh.0 and only see the most compelling argument for euthanasia ever recorded.
Eh, I'd rather see it go out when it's still good than keep going long past when it should have stopped (Groening's other series springs to mind). I'll be honest, I haven't been quite as into these Comedy Central episodes as the first few seasons anyway. They've been good, but really nothing to compare with what's come before. Hopefully the last batch will contain some gems.
Key and Peele are pretty hilarious (in numerous clips I've seen online) and Workaholics is funny more often than not. You're right that Tosh.0 is garbage, but the whole channel isn't that way.

Hmm. I was going to read your list, but I experienced cognitive dissonance when Jeff Dunham and Gabriel Iglesias were described as "great" and my brain refused to read any further. :p
I determine "great" by if I am made to laugh. Those two consistently do so, while others do not.
You are welcome! :D
