Futurama Signs Off With Its Latest Series Finale

Futurama

The Futurama producers have plenty of experience writing series finales. After all, Wednesday's episode marks the fourth time they've thought they were bringing their outrageous animated sci-fi comedy to a close.

Usain Bolt Gets Set to Strike at the World Track & Field Championships

Usain Bolt

It's been a rough summer for track and field, with drug scandals and injuries taking several players out of contention for the IAAF World Championships. But the sport's biggest name, Usain Bolt, is on his marks for this year's edition of the biennial event, August 10—18 in Moscow (airing daily on Universal Sports and NBC, see full schedule below).

The six-time Olympic gold medalist got off to a shaky start this season with a June loss to American Justin Gatlin at an invitational meet in Rome. NBC/Universal Sports analyst Ato Boldon cites other commitments for diluting the Jamaican's training, but he's confident Bolt will step up. "When it's time for a championship," Boldon says, "his management locks out a period of time, really the only time of the year, when he can have really good consistent and continuous training."

Adam West

One of the (many) great things about the 1960s Batman TV series was the colorful rogues gallery who took on the Dynamic Duo. In addition to legendary comic book villains like the Joker, the Riddler, Catwoman and Penguin, producers of the series created their own assortment of baddies, often portrayed by Hollywood icons. Among the more inspired casting choices: Tallulah Bankhead played Black Widow, Milton Berle was Louie the Lilac and Vincent Price camped it up as Egghead.
