Fox will spend two more years with The Simpson, Family Guy and Bob’s Burgers
January 26th, 2023 under Fox, Seth MacFarlane, The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]

Fox announced today that it picked up The Simpsons, Family Guy, and Bob’s Burgers for two more seasons. That will bring their totals to 36, 23, and 15 seasons, respectively.

“With this trio of renewals, we celebrate excellence in animation on FOX, our wonderful, long-time partnership with 20th Television and the brilliant creators and incredible voices behind these forever favorites,” said Michael Thorn, President, Scripted Programming for FOX Entertainment. “Three-plus decades of The Simpsons, more than two decades of Family Guy and over a decade of Bob’s Burgers proves the enduring power of the animation genre on our network and the infinite fan affinity for these outrageously funny comedy classics.”

The Simpsons’ renewal means it broke its own record of the longest-running scripted show. At this rate, the show will outlive its voice actors.

The three animated series join The Great North and Krapopolis in the 2023-2024 lineup.


Monarch is the first show to be cancelled
December 8th, 2022 under Fox, Susan Sarandon, Trace Adkins. [ Comments: none ]

It is December, and we just learned what is the first broadcast scripted show that won’t be back for another season on Fox. That title goes to Monarch.

Never heard of it? It was a Country Music Soap Opera that starred Trace Adkins and Susan Sarandon. Well, they lied about the latter because they killed her off in the first episode. Not that that was a bad thing. But they kept pushing that she was starring in the series.

When it comes to the show, I tried watching it, but after three episodes, I stopped. I just couldn’t do it anymore, and I have low standards. Since it is all about me, that is why it won’t be back. Not that it did terribly in the ratings.

Fox moves out of Duncanville and Tom wasn’t Swift enough for The CW
June 30th, 2022 under Amy Poehler, Fox, The CW. [ Comments: none ]

Did you know that Duncanville was airing its third season on Fox? You didn’t? You are not alone.

Therefore today, the network pulled the plug on the animated series, and the six remaining episodes will stream on Hulu later this year, according to Deadline.

The show was created by Amy Poehler, who starred in the show with Ty Burrell.

Are you going to miss it?

UPDATE: The CW cancelled the Nancy Drew spinoff, Tom Swift, after one season.

What will be the third show?


Fox finally announces its Fall schedule
June 6th, 2022 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]

Normally, networks release their Fall schedules during the Upfronts. However, Fox went into the day without confirmed renewals of 9-1-1 and The Resident. The network was able to finalize the deal right before the presentation, but they were not prepared to release their lineup at that time.

Now, almost a month later, Fox finally let us know when their shows will air. I am OK with almost all of it. But I just wish they would’ve bumped their live-action “comedies” to midseason and put Fantasy Island on after Hell’s Kitchen. I have been waiting too long for new episodes, and it is always all about me.
