Futurama

Fox, Tuesdays

Should the most biting joke in an animated comedy about Manhattan in the year 3000 be that the city's airport has been re-named the John F. Kennedy Jr.? Probably not, but we don't get much more than that in Futurama, the latest from Simpsons' creator Matt Groening. The show lacks the vision of The Simpsons, the snappy rhythm and the kind of far-reaching humor that keep it dizzyingly smart even after a decade on the air. Is there anything good to say about Futurama? Sure, it's better than Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza.
