Well, the folks over at Comedy Central could not be happier.

In the latest example of an animated series rising from the dead (check out the history of "Family Guy"), "Futurama" blasted off on Comedy Central last Thursday night, June 24, 2010, with record ratings, the network announced.

From Comedy Central’s announcement: "The Emmy Award-winning animated sci-fi comedy "Futurama," resurrected by COMEDY CENTRAL, made an out-of-this-world return and, with 2.9 million total viewers, became the highest-rated and most-watched season premiere for an animated series on cable with the exception of ‘South Park.’

"Airing its first original episode in almost seven years, the sixth season premiere of "Futurama" titled “Rebirth” (Thursday, 10:00-10:30 p.m.) averaged a 2.0 HH rating, 1.9 Adults 18-49 rating, 4.5 Men 18-24 rating and 3.5 Men 18-34 rating, finishing the night as the most-watched and highest-rated show in all of television for Thursday Prime among M18-24 and M18-34, as well as the highest-rated show in all of television among Adults 18-49 (tie)."
