FOX’s Sunday animation lineup looks like it will return intact next season, thanks to the network’s pickup of “Bob’s Burgers” for a second season.
The newest member of the ‘toon lineup got its Season 2 renewal on Thursday (April 7). It had been considered on the bubble for renewal (and was not faring well among Zap2it readers in our bubble-show poll), but FOX Entertainment president Kevin Reilly removed any suspense with the pickup.
“‘Bob’s Burgers’ has proved to be a perfect neighbor to our slate of fan-favorite animated families this year,” Reilly says. “The series has found its own really unique, irreverent voice and is doing consistent business for us on Sundays, so we’re excited to serve up another season to the fans.”
The show was created by “Home Movies” mastermind Loren Bouchard, who executive produces with “King of the Hill” veteran Jim Dauterive. It premiered in January and has averaged about 5.2 million viewers per week, along with a 2.5 rating among adults 18-49.
