Cohen, and stars Billy West (Fry, Zoidberg, Professor Farnsworth, Zapp Brannigan), Katey Sagal (Leela), John DiMaggio (Bender), and Maurice LaMarche (Kif Kroker, Calculon, Morbo).

From the minds of the hilarious and irreverent Internet sketch group Mail Order Comedy, "Workaholics," currently in its third season, is a single-camera comedy featuring three friends who work together from 9 to 5, live together from 5 to 9 and party together 24/7. Dress codes, deadlines and waking up before noon are not things these guys are used to. They do their jobs and sometimes they even do them well, but they show up late, leave drunk and always live for the day... even if they don't know what day it is. Whether it's Blake (Blake Anderson) dressed in a bear coat, Adam (Adam Devine) singing about Catherine Zeta Jones while high on mushrooms or The Ders (Anders Holm) celebrating his birthday with a drinking triathlon, the boys always seem to run into trouble wherever they go.

"Brickleberry," co-produced by Fox 21 and Comedy Central, is based on a group of dysfunctional forest rangers at a national park that is facing closure until a new ranger comes in to whip everyone into shape and save the park. The series is created, written and executive produced by Waco O'Guin and Roger Black (MTV2's "Stankervision") and executive produced by Daniel Tosh ("Tosh.0"), who also voices a character. "Brickleberry" premieres Tuesday, September 25 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT following new episodes of "Tosh.0."

"Futurama" focuses on the life of Philip Fry (Billy West), a 25-year-old pizza delivery boy who accidentally freezes himself on December 31, 1999 and wakes up 1,000 years later with a fresh start at life at Planet Express, an intergalactic delivery company. There he meets love interest Leela (Katey Sagal), a sexy cyclops with anger management issues, and best friend Bender (John DiMaggio), a beer-powered kleptomaniac robot. In 2011, the series earned two Emmys(R) for Outstanding Animated Program and Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for Maurice LaMarche. "Futurama" is currently in its seventh season and airs Wednesdays at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
