Silly Salamadars Slither Stealthily

Family Guy might return in January 2005. "As many as 35 new episodes could return in January 2005, marking the first time that a canceled series has been revived based on strong DVD demand and ratings in syndication. A decision to restart the show suggests a reversal from the old TV business model, in which a network hit predicts a profit windfall in syndication. This time, the promise of DVD and syndication gold could justify a show's return even if low network ratings didn't. But canceled favorites aren't likely to rise from the grave en masse. Family Guy has one major advantage: With no actors and no sets, it can simply be drawn back into existence." Um, yeah there are actors, voice actors. If they don't bring back the original voices, they might have some angry fans on their hands. Now all FauX needs to do is bring back Futurama, and I'll stop hating them as much.

These folks want to ban Comic Sans. Against the wishes of the Comic Sans Appreciation Society and Illustrated History of Comic Sans.
