Futurama: Bender Should Not Be Allowed on Television
When a young star of the hit robot soap opera "All My Circuits" literally falls to pieces, Bender seizes his chance for stardom. Along with Fry and Leela, Bender sabotages the auditions and secures a spot on the show. As a result of Bender's misbehavior, the Nielsen numbers rise, making Bender a star. When a new group, Fathers Against Rude Television (or F.A.R.T.) plans a Million Dad March to protest his character, Bender realizes his effect on kids.

This episode was planned by FOX to be the last ever aired episode (which is why they kept postponing it). However, the producers intervened and managed to get FOX to air the intended series finale, "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings" as the series finale. The fact that FOX wanted this episode to air last seems to suggest that they think Bender (and Fry, Leela, Farnsworth and the others) "should not be allowed on TV".
