"Futurama" will sadly be airing its series finale today… at least, that’s what we’ve been told. This is the third time the show has been cancelled, so really there will always be hope. However, it seems like they mean serious business this time, so we can safely say the network probably won't change their minds and renew it next month. While we mourn the end(?) of a brilliant show, we're taking this opportunity to look back at one of the most important contributions "Futurama" has made to recent society: memes. Read More...

We had the chance to sit down with Phil LaMarr at this year's Denver Comic-Con and talk to him a little bit about his illustrious voice acting career...turns out that he actually does every voice on 'Futurama' except Hermes. Seriously, even Leela.

Sad news, everyone! Futurama ends its TV run (again) this year on Comedy Central, but that doesn't mean they won't be going out partying like it's 2999. To kick things off, Comedy Central is placing two huge billboards - one in LA, the other in NYC's Times Square - teasing a rather ominous new tagline: Read More...

It’s that time of year when we’ve done away with the butterfly and pastel adorned greeting cards, and traded them in for ones littered in sporting goods and blue. Father’s Day is here, but when it comes to the animated dads, it's a mixed bag. Most don’t have the nurturing charisma that their motherly counterparts do, but we love them anyway... Because underneath their hard shell made up of attitude, yelling and furrowed brows, are great, great Dads. Here are the ten best... Ever:

Were it not for the great big Emmy that he garnered last year for his "Outstanding Voice-Over Performance" in Futurama, you would probably describe voice actor Maurice LaMarche as "unsung" or something similar among the list of the show's talent. Lamarche, who not only plays major characters like squishy, put-upon space Kif, or imperious robot actor Calculon, is a host of the smaller side characters, the one-line space freaks and New York weirdos that populate Futurama.

LaMarche, like many of his fellow cast members, is a voice acting veteran, with a practically absurd list of credits under his belt. His range has had him playing everyone from Yosemite Sam (The Looney Tunes Show) to Mr. Freeze in last year's Batman: Arkham City.

With the show returning tonight for its seventh season tonight (Comedy Central, 10:00 PM ET), we spoke to Lamarche about his work on the series, the secret origins of news monster Morbo, and his secret wish to be Mom.

Comedy Central's animated series Ugly Americans is back for a third season, bringing back ultra-optimistic social worker Mark, his infernal girlfriend Callie, his zombie roommate Randall, and the whole shebang of undead/alien/mutant/mythological denizens of New York that has sprung forth from the head of series creator Devin Clark and executive producer Daniel Powell. The duo spoke to us recently about the return of the series and what to look forward to in season three.

Workaholics stars (L) Blake Anderson, (R) Anders Holm

Workaholics is the brainchild of friends/roommates/partners in comedy Anders Holm, Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, and Kyle Newacheck. The show has its roots in the web series 5th Year, created by the quartet which finally caught the attention of a Comedy Central exec. Entering its second season on Comedy Central, the show centers on three buddies/roommates (Holm, Anderson, and Devine) working a dead end telemarketing gig for beer money after recently graduating from college. The world could be wide open for these guys, but instead they spend their time working on wizard raps, getting into feuds with the local high school students, befriending a sexual predator, and attending their first Gathering of the Juggaloes.* It would be easy to accuse the show of dude-bro humor, but the guys seem to spend more time taking apart the party hard lifestyle and getting their TV personas into the biggest, stupidest messes they can, making it one of the funniest new shows on right now.

Sunday night saw the premiere of the one hour documentary on the hectic creation of the first batch of South Park's 15th season, 6 Days to Air: The Making of South Park on Comedy Central. The special takes an unprecedented inside look at the creation of the show thanks to the access granted to the documentary's director, Arthur Bradford. Bradford, a longtime friend of Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the show's creators, was gradually able to take a simple behind-the-scenes EPK video and gradually work his way into the writers' room and the production booth to see the challenges in getting a single episode out the door in the span of--you guessed it--six days.

Before checking out the interview, here's the trailer for the doc, which will be airing again throughout the week and later this fall:

This year has been busy for comedian and actor Nick Swardson. A lot of readers may know Swardson from his regular role on Reno 911! as the rollerskating male prostitute Terry, or his appearances in Happy Madison productions like Grandma's Boy and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. Most recently, he could be seen with Danny McBride as a dim-witted crook in the comedy 30 Minutes or Less as well as his starring vehicle, Bucky Larson: Born to Be A Star. He also wrapped the second season of his sketch show, Nick Swardson's Pretend Time which begins its run of eight episodes on October 5th at 10:30 ET on Comedy Central.

We spoke to clearly exhausted Swardson about getting the second season off the ground, the challenge of getting a half dozen or more episodes into a half hour, and the learning curve going from the first season to the second.
