Jon Benjamin Demonstrates How to Be a Professional Voice Actor

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 Orders Up Another Season of 'Bob's Burgers' with a Side of Burger Puns

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 [...]

Jon Hamm the Toilet and Other Future Perfect 'Bob's Burgers' Guest Stars

The Jon Hamm's John Ham prophecy has moved a step forward. Comedy's boyfriend Jon Hamm will play a toilet on the next season of Bob's Burgers. Bob's Burgers' creator Loren Bouchard explained the what and why of the cameo:

“It’s a kind of E.T. homage, but instead of an alien, it’s this high-end talking electronic toilet that falls off a truck and lands in the woods. And Gene finds it, E.T.-style. It’s kind of a love story between a boy and a toilet.”

It just makes so much sense. But wait there's more. So much more that let's switch to a list format. Ready? And go [Spoiler Alerting]:

'Bob's Burgers" Poster Attempts to Prevent Comic-Con Choking Deaths

Over 130,000 people attend Comic-Con each year and about 90,000 of those people choke to death (give or take 90,000). Bob's Burgers wants to bring that number down with the help of this choking first aid poster. Tips include: "Keeping the head titled and the mouth open, pinch the victim's nose to make him look more elegant, then say 'all board the smooch train.'"  The posters are meant to promote the Bob's Burgers panel that takes place Friday at 4 p.m. and will be given out at Fox's booth. However, knowing Bob's Burgers, this is all probably a viral marketing stunt to promote their new Artichoke Your Chicken Burger (comes [...]

FOX Reveals its Predictable New Schedule

As the first place network, FOX is different place than NBC and their predictable schedule suggests as much. Tuesday becomes their night of sitcoms, with the only somewhat comedic Glee moving to Thursdays. Raising Hope moves to 8:00, which is perfect for its family focus, and the hotly anticipated The Mindy Project goes right where it should be at 9:30, post New Girl. There isn't much to discuss, as it’s a pretty safe schedule. Check it out below. What do you think? Are these your go-to Tuesday plans?

Jon Benjamin "Legtimately Annoyed" by His Fellow 'Bob's Burgers' Cast Members

“I am legitimately annoyed by the other [Bob's Burgers] actors a huge part of the time… Recording sessions for [creator] Loren [Bouchard]’s shows can run six, seven hours, which doesn’t sound like a huge deal — everybody works that long — but when you’re in a recording booth it’s suffocating. So in a weird way he has created this family dynamic, which is like, ‘God, I wish Kristen Schaal would stop eating that fucking rice cake thing she’s always eating. It’s so annoying. And Eugene Mirman, I wish he would get off his iPad and stop tweeting for five minutes so he can do his fucking lines. And John Roberts is [...]

'Bob's Burgers' Takes On 'The Warriors' With the Trailer for Its Halloween Episode

Bob's Burgers's first-ever Halloween installment is airing this Sunday, and the show's creative team cut an in-house trailer  that's an homage to The Warriors. The episode involves the Belcher kids going trick-or-treating unsupervised in search of full-sized candy bars, but they get caught up in the local teenagers' tradition "Hell Hunt." The trailer alone is already a million times scarier than the entirety of The Warriors is.

Eeek! There Will a 'Bob's Burgers' Crossover Episode of 'Archer'

This is real! H. Jon Benjamin told Entertainment Weekly: “[Archer creator Adam Reed] really likes Bob’s Burgers. And the fourth season has a Bob’s Burgers tie-in, which is really bizarre.” First, join the club, Adam. Second, aaaaaaaaah! And it won't be like a little cameo, it's a full episode built around Bob's Burgers. Benjamin continued:

“It’s like a Bourne Identity-type plotline. It starts off with Archer as Bob, making hamburgers, but he doesn’t know that he’s Archer. He’s at the restaurant and these, like, I think Russian thugs come in, and Bob dispatches them expertly. And then he’s like, What just happened? How did I do that? So he has to try to figure out why he’s [...]

Fox Unveils Its Fall Premiere Dates

NBC did it last week, and now it's Fox's turn to unveil their fall premiere schedule. Fox isn't taking as many big chances with their fall lineup schedule, nor are they spreading things out across three months like NBC. But they are holding the premiere of The Cleveland Show until October 7th, which I'm sure will upset at least some people. In any case, here are the full details:

Fox Keeping 'Family Guy,' 'American Dad' and 'Bob's Burgers' Around for Another Season

Seth MacFarlane's pockets are getting even more full: Fox just renewed both Family Guy and American Dad for their eleventh and eighth seasons, respectively. It's not all good news for MacFarlane, however, as Fox has decided to hold off on renewing The Cleveland Show until its fourth season starts to air this fall. Oh man, so he'll potentially only have two animated series on Fox on Sundays? Someone send the guy a sympathy edible arrangement.

In non-MacFarlane-related Fox animation news, Bob's Burgers writer Scott Jacobson confirmed that it has also been picked up for another season, its third. Burgers all around!

Talking to Kristen Schaal about 'Bob's Burgers' and Being More Autobiographical On Stage

Between prominent roles in Bob's Burgers, The Daily Show, 30 Rock, and Flight of the Conchords, it seems like Kristen Schaal has had a part in just about every great TV comedy over the past few years. In addition to her busy TV and movie career, Schaal is also an accomplished stand-up, having hosted, with comedy partner Kurt Braunohler, the long-running, wildly-popular NYC comedy showcase Hot Tub, which just ended its run after Schaal and Braunohler both moved to the West Coast. I had the chance to watch Kristen Schaal perform an amazing, funny set at a Funny or Die showcase presented by Marriott and Wired last week and [...]

There Might Be 32 Episodes of 'Bob's Burgers' Next Season

Fox has ordered six additional scripts from Bob's Burgers, putting them at 19 for Season 3. However, they also have 13 finished episodes lying around from Season 2. That is a lot of episodes and A LOT of hamburger puns. This is a very heartening sign. B'sBs is not a ratings powerhouse; however, the word is that the people over at Fox really like the show, which makes sense because it is super and the best. In honor of their good treatment, expect to see the "20th Sesame Lox Burger" on the Bob's Burgers special board next season.

So Many Animation Domination Voice-Over Guests So Much Time

Zooey Deschanel, Jon Hamm, Johnny Depp, Steve Carell, Nick Offerman, and Fred Armisen are just some of the many who are set to lend their voices to a FOX animated series next fall. Here are all that have been announced:

The Simpsons Zooey Deschanel will play Bart's "long-lost love." Steve Carell will play Homer's bowling buddy. Patton Oswalt will play a hip new neighborhood kid. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein's roles haven't been announced yet.

Bob's Burgers Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally will play a hippie married couple. Jon Hamm's role hasn't been announced yet. Kevin Kline, Sarah and Laura Silverman, Aziz Ansari and Jeffrey Tambor will be back.

The rest of [...]

Jon Hamm to Hamm it Up on 'Bob's Burgers'

A few hours ago, John Roberts tweeted that he's recording an episode of Bob's Burgers tomorrow with Jon Hamm. Assuming this episode won't air until the Fall, this gives the writing staff a few months to think of the perfect Jon Hamm inspired hamburger specials (or Hammburger specials). Here are a few to get them started: Barak O-Hamm-a, 21 Hamms, Happy as a Hamm, Bull Dur-Hamm, The Hoover Hamm, Viet-Hamm War, Midterm Ex-Hamm, St. Louis Hamms, Hamm Yankees, Silence of the Hamms, and Frankly, my dear, I don't give a Hamm.
