‘Futurama’, ‘Real World’ Renewed

RENEWED: “Futurama,” for two more 13-episode cycles. The once-canceled Fox sitcom is enjoying its second life on Comedy Central, averaging 2.5 million viewers per episode after factoring in DVR.

CANCELED: “The Real Housewives of DC.” The White House-storming iteration of “Housewives” struggled to find viewers and won’t be renewed, according to Radar. That’s one down, and six — O.C., New Jersey, New York, Atlanta, Miami, and Beverly Hills — to go. Baby steps, people.

RENEWED: “The Real World,” for two more seasons. Presently airing its 25th season and casting for the 26th, MTV ordered seasons 27 and 28 yesterday. No word yet on where the casts will be living and filming, but I’d like to recommend somewhere hot. Like, say, the center of the Earth. Or maybe the sun.

CANCELED: “Lights Out,” FX’s boxing drama that drew viewers at the rate of “Terriers” but wasn’t half as good. Wanna know why it failed? The protagonist has the exact same voice as Tony Danza.
