Fans of the cult hit animated comedy rejoiced when it was announced earlier this year that "Futurama" would be returning to the air on Comedy Central. But then their hearts sank when the studio, 20th Century Fox, announced the original voice cast would not be returning because they were asking for too much money. On Saturday, executive producers David X. Cohen and Matt Groening will be taking the stage alongside -- gasp -- the original voice actors, Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio and Maurice LaMarche. How many minutes will elapse before the pay issue gets raised? Probably less than five.
