On TV tonight: ‘Futurama’

GROENING THE GREAT.JPG “Futurama,” 10 p.m. Comedy Central: This is both the 100th episode and the sixth season finale of the animated series. The episode, “The Mutants Are Revolting,” has Leela leading an army of underground mutants in a revolt against the surface people.

The series follows the life of Philip J. Fry (voiced by Billy West), a pizza delivery boy who falls stumbles into a freezer in 1999 and wakes up a thousand years later. He gets a job working for Planet Express.

When the crew’s hired to make a 100th delivery, Bender decides to throw a huge party. The only problem is that while at a fund-raiser, Fry accidentally reveals Leela’s a mutant who’s illegally living above ground.

Comedy Central revived this series after it had been off the air for almost seven years and it’s been a ratings success for the cable channel.
