The reason why kinda makes sense, though.

Matt Groening (possible sp) basically states in most interviews just how much he hates Fox and Fox executives, and how he's only making The Simpsons for the money and to fill out his contract these days. The reason is because for the longest time, Fox wouldn't get off his back about his show and how it should be done. When The Simpsons got popular, they came crawling back at his feet because they needed him around. So, he resents Fox. (Heck, all those jabs at Fox aren't just for pure humour, ya know.)

The story behind Futurama is even worse, actually. Matt wanted to have a new kind of show; one that was dark, gritty and really just had a lot of dark comedy about what a post-apocalyptic world would be like with a disfunctional, uncaring bunch of friends. Fox executives told him they'd get back to him, and when they did, they said they'd "prefer" if he made a show that was a cross between The Jetsons and The Simpsons. Even Matt himself just called the show "The Simpsons in space." So, even though Futurama is pretty funny (depending on who you talk to), he really lost his will to make that show as good as it can be. And Fox just keeps it on because it always gets them a high rating. Pretty sad, eh?
