Bob Belcher and his restaurant may be cursed with an unlucky streak, but even before the fourth season premieres this Sunday, Fox has already renewd Bob's Burgers for a fifth. While portraying a dysfunctional, blue-collar family struggling to stay afloat, the show has successfully challenged Seth MacFarlane's hegemony in the world of animated primetime comedy while attracting a growing fanbase. While the Belcher family continues to struggle, Bob's Burgers continues to grow.
Jon Benjamin, the voice behind protagonist Bob Belcher, has been lauded for his hilarously gruff dead pan which has brought to life many animated leading men such as Sterling Archer in FX's [...]

Thanks to shows like the grower-favorite Raising Hope, the unqualified smash New Girl, and the inexplicably indomitable Seth MacFarlane Ratings Juggernaut, Fox has quietly positioned itself as perhaps the new network standard for high-quality comedies (especially given NBC’s ongoing long, slow fade to black). And perhaps no network sitcom has been so [...]
Voice actor extraordinaire Jon Benjamin has been one of the most prominent talents in his field for years now, voicing major characters on Bob's Burgers, Archer, Home Movies, and more. Now, we finally get to see how he manages to achieve such a high level of voiceover perfection: torturing his engineers.
Fox just announced it has picked up animated comedy Bob’s Burgers for a full 22-episode fourth season, expected to begin airing next fall. The show, currently in the midst of Season Three, just received an order for an additional six scripts from Fox a few weeks back, but this fourth season news is infinitely more exciting for fans of the Emmy-nominated program. Bob's Burgers' current season continues to air Sunday nights at 8:30, with big-name guests like Jon Hamm, Bill Hader, Sarah Silverman, Aziz Ansari, and Jeffrey Tambor lending their voices this time around. 22 episodes means the Bob's Burgers writers have a lot more burger puns to come [...]
