A quick trip to Bento Box (a new signatory studio in Burbank) brought this from a story artist.
"The Bob's Burger panel at Comic-Con went real well. The room was full, and when we ran part of the pilot, the laughs were constant ..."
Meaning there was a lot of yuks in the hall. The artists working on the series think upcoming episodes are funny, a good sign. There are people who don't like the look of it, but my view is: If the comedy works, it plays on Fox. (Anybody think The Simpsons or Family Guy are designed in the high falutin' Disney manner? I think not. Has this hurt their ratings? Don't think so.)
Another staffer informed me that studio management is pitching the studio to Fox and other fine conglomerates as a production facility. The thinking is they will land some upcoming series. I'm guessing we'll find out soon enough ...
