Hard to believe 'Futurama' has only one more episode to air before its latest (and possibly last) hypersleep, but we certainly won't stop talking about it. 'Talking Dead' and 'Talking Bad' host Chris Hardwick will venture off AMC to host a two 'Futurama' talkbacks surrounding next Wednesday's series finale "Meanwhile," the first clip of which has made its way online as well.

Comedy legend Bill Cosby may not maintain much presence in the public eye anymore, beyond the occasional Jimmy Fallon appearance, but it seems the 76-year-old comic is going back to work full time. The former 'Cosby Show' leader will return with a new Comedy Central stand-up special later this year, having not recorded new material for a special in 30 years.

On the occasions in which Comedy Central puts someone outside the realm of comedy to roast, as most recently with comedienne Roseanne Barr, we always hope they deserve it. Thankfully, this year will hold true as the cable network has seated 'This Is the End' star and "Academy Award-nominated actor-director-writer-producer-artist" James Franco on the throne as its latest roastee.

While we've learned of some impressive genre guest stars to debut in the coming weeks, most surprising of all is that 'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane will lend his voice to the futuristic animated comedy, and you'll never guess as whom!

The moment we heard Comedy Central would take Will Ferrell's Funny Or Die web series 'Drunk History' to TV, we knew we'd be in for a cavalcade of celebrity guest stars, but perhaps not this many. The network has officially set a July 9 premiere for the web-adapted reenactment series, amid a mammoth list of guest stars that includes everyone from 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig to Winona Ryder and 'The Internship''s Owen Wilson, and that's just to start.

As Comedy Central prepares to launch the final (ish) season of 'Futurama' on June 19, we've learned another animated series of the cable network has officially gone gently into that good night.

'Futurama' fans recently had their hearts broken once more to learn that the series would come to a (likely) definitive end after its next 13 episodes, but if nothing else, the beloved sci-fi animated series will certainly go out with a bang. New reports claim 'Game of Thrones' star Emilia Clarke will lend her fiery tongue to one of the final 'Futurama' episodes, but who will the Mother of Dragons have her animated eyes on this summer?
