Fox renews 'Bob's Burgers' for second season


Image Credit: Fox

Fox has renewed animated series Bob’s Burgers for a second season, sources say.

The midseason comedy by 20th Century Fox has been a bit on the bubble for a renewal given that its numbers haven’t quite been as strong as Fox’s other Sunday night mainstays like Family Guy and The Simpsons.

But given that the other Sunday “Animation Domination” shows are already renewed — and Fox has a few other ‘toon projects in the works like its Napoleon Dynamite animated series — renewing Burgers potentially means that Fox will expand its animated block beyond Sunday nights next season.

  • polly

    Scott! Scott! Scott!

  • Joe

    Good news. This show is pretty funny–especially Tina, the oldest daughter.

  • Fred

    Me likey this show! WOOHOO!

    • Channing Taintum

      Love H. Jon Benjamin, but this show just isn’t very funny, and it’s location on Sunday night takes away from American Dad, which is a MUCH better show

      • Crystal

        LOL! That’s hilarious . . .

      • Crystal

        . . . that you think American Dad is funny. I should have finished that statement.

      • Ronald

        Yeah, this show runs circles around the tired American Dad. Not a laugh in that show.

      • Lando

        The fact that you like American Dad makes your opinion worthless.

  • Kyle

    awesome! people should really give this show a second chance! like fox, i guess…

  • Tracey

    I really love this show!

  • Stef

    I looooooooove this show. Louise is my favorite, she’s a little psycho in bunny ears.

  • Phil

    This show is great! I think that it will definitely grow and get better throughout the second season.

    We need to break up the Seth McFarlane night up a little bit!

  • Kajumajo

    This show is hysterical! I can’t wait for season two! I love Teddy-so lovable!

  • Penny

    Yay, I love this show! It drives my husband bonkers but it has a season pass on my DVR. So funny.

  • Dicazi

    This show is funnier and less offensive than The Cleveland Show. Fox needs to cancel that.

  • Barry Stinson

    This show was the worst crap I have seen in my life! No doubt it’s loved by the 18-49 demographic, as animation seems to be all they understand. This contributes to the ‘dumbing down’ of America – I’m glad I won’t be around for too many more years.

    • Jay

      Hey there, Barry. Dont generalize like that. I’m in that demo, and I can tell you I think Bob’s Burgurs is downright awful. I only clicked the article because I was curious if anybody actually had anything nice to say about the show.
      I’m surprised this show actually has fans. Its a total crapfest

      • gfnfgn

        total crapfest isnt that from bobs burgers

    • Crystal

      So everyone 18-49 year-olds are the only ones who understand animation? That’s possibly the silliest thing I’ve ever heard. Animation can be understood by all ages, just because something is animated does not mean it’s childish, immature, or dumb. That attitude is just ignorant.

      • CL

        Old people know how to write comments on the internet- impressive…. I’m in love with this show and it’s about time something besides Seth Macfarlane’s sense of humor got a time slot!!

      • Crystal

        Very, very true! Family Guy was never funny, and the other two are just as terrible. It’s refreshing to see a different kind of humor on Sunday nights.

    • Marc

      You’re not the only one who’s glad….

    • Gene

      Hey Barry… You are obviously very distraught over the 2nd season renewal of Bobs Burgers. First I would like to recommend that you learn to manage your emotions… lashing out on an internet forum & insulting people who have found enjoyment in a TV show that results in them laughing & being happy just makes you look like a sad old pathetic depressed old man. The irony here, is that you’re the one contributing to the ‘dumbing down of America’ with your negativity.

I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be only me or do some of the responses come across like they are coming from brain dead people? And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I’d like to keep up with you. Could you post a list of every one of your social community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    • kevin

      Glad u won’t b around for.years because you have to be intelligent to actually laugh at these shows

  • TQB

    God this show is awful. It’s a race to the remote the minute the Simpsons ends.

    • Rick

      sounds like your a half hour slow

      • Dan

        When i have time for TV i watch mostly cartoons.
        Simpsons,Family guy,American dad etc.

        But after 2000 the Simpsons has gone so far down hill, and i’m getting tired of like many others the Seth night (get rid of Cleavland show) but bob’s burgers has actual comedians doing voices this show is My fav as of now.

  • Scott

    This means one thing–that I will continue to grab my remote and change the channel once “The Simpsons” is over. “Bob’s Burgers” just isn’t funny. It’s not horrible in a “turn this off, this is absolute garbage!” kinda way but it’s just not funny.

  • Michael

    I love this show. Awesome news.
