Andy Richter Controls the Universe was a sitcom which aired from 2002–2003 on the Fox network. The series was Andy Richter's first starring role after leaving NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien in 2000. It ran for two seasons, totaling nineteen episodes, and was canceled due in part to poor ratings. The show was a joint production of 20th Century Fox Television and Paramount Network Television. Paramount's successor CBS Television Distribution has distribution rights to the series in the United States while Fox retains global distribution rights. TV Guide included the series in their 2013 list of 60 shows that were "Cancelled Too Soon".
