Comedy Central might take away, but Fox is in a giving mood.

... On Thursday, Fox announced that the Emmy-winning animated series Bob's Burgers will return for a sixth season. Season six will consist of an additional 22 episodes. The renewal marks the first major pickup for Fox under network chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman. ...

As another entertainment journal notes:

Despite largely flying under the radar, getting fraction of the attention fellow Fox animated series The Simpsons and Family Guy are getting, Bob’s Burgers has quietly reached a milestone very few broadcast series achieve — a sixth season. ...

Bob’s Burgers has not been a ratings hit of the size of The Simpsons and Family Guy but has developed a loyal following despite frequent time slot moves. This past fall, it held 100% of its season premiere rating in Week 2. The series also has been a critical darling, recently landing an Annie and and two WGA nominations, and has been a favorite of Fox and 20th Century Fox TV brass. ...

The BB writers and artistic staff work in Bento's Burbank studio. Congratulations to everyone involved! Top to bottom, the crew works hard ... and deserves its success.
