Trees down! TREES DOWN!

Another Fox property beloved by fans may get a resurrection. Family Guy got a new lease on TV life, Firefly begat Serenity, and now there is a chance for the return of Futurama. The story perpetuates the five season myth; there were only four production seasons. Fox stretched it out to five broadcast seasons by continually preempting the show with sports and other events. It was then that I started referring to the 7 PM Sunday evening hour as the Futurama Death Slot.
So my question is: how many times will this happen to shows before the networks get a clue? Arrested Development may or may not be get to another network, but the handwriting is on the wall. The times are changing.
