One More New Fox Animation

Fox Broadcasting, awash in animated tentpoles on Sunday night, is working to add yet another.

...[Joining] Fox’s lineup next year is their new animated comedy series" Bob’s Burgers." The series follows a family that runs a failing burger joint ... [and] features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schaal. ... [I]t appears as though a few of the female characters will be voiced by male actors ...

Bento Box is now ramping up to create episodes of BB, and the show hits the airwaves in 2011. I wouldn't have a clue whether the show will catch on with the cartoon-watching public or not, but I'm keeping an open mind. (Some folks don't like Bob's look, yett there have been various shows -- Beavis and Butthead and Family Guy come to mind -- that didn't exactly resemble Fantasia and nevertheless succeeded in the ratings department.)

Will the new spate of shows that are now in the pipeline become Nielson darlings? I guess we'll know by the middle of next year.

Welll, I finally actually checked back and deleted it. Sorry for the pause in service, but sometimes my spam guard is OFF.
