I'm as close to a superfan of Futurama as I am about anything (I own and have listened to the commentaries for every episode through volume 5), so I did manage to catch most of the past couple seasons on air. Sad that people weren't even really aware of the existence of their Comedy Central run. When they picked up the rights to run the DVDs, they promoted it pretty hard, but I think they were hurting for programming at the time. They have a whole new slate of shows this year, likely inspired by the success of Tosh.0 (Jeselnik Offensive, Nathan for You), so I think that it hasn't been fitting into their lineup as well anymore.
The new CC episodes were a little uneven right off the bat, but the good ones were as good as any in the original seasons. It makes sense, they had most of the same writing staff, although they did have a somewhat smaller writer's room thanks to reduced budgets. They also, of course, retained all of the original voice talent. Looking back at the season 6 listings, there were some really great ones. (The Late Philip J. Fry, Clockwork Origin, Prisoner of Benda, Overclockwise). As noted, their "ripped from the headlines" episodes are pretty weak, but they've always been good at straight sci-fi material.
Looking at the Wiki, the final episode of Season 7 is noted as being written as a "possible series finale", which is nice. I don't really need closure on these characters, to be honest. They already got more time than anybody ever expected them to, and the good episodes will stand the test of time and re-watches. But I think it would be nice to give them a fitting send-off.
