“Fire up the grill!” and some more such metaphors! Bob’s Burgers will be getting an additional nine episodes in its second season. Fox announced today that, in the wake of Allen Gregory’s limp debut, that it will be picking up Bob’s Burgers for 22 episodes, rather than the original order of 13, as if to say, “We’ve already got a whole stable of cartoons with lukewarm audiences, Allen Gregory.”

The Jonah Hill-produced Gregory debuted last night between Family Guy and The Simpsons Halloween Special, but failed to rake in more than a 4.7 share, which is apparently a disappointment, even though The Simpsons scored a 4.0 and Family Guy a 3.2.

Huh. Weirdly enough, someone at Fox this morning probably addressed a group sitting around a coffee table and said, “This show isn’t drawing enough viewers. We need a show that more people will watch. Like Bob’s Burgers.”

All hail Bob’s Burgers.

UPDATE: FOX is going to be releasing some clips in the next hour or so, so watch this space if you’re interested.

Everyone hates summer. We’re forced out of our homes by reruns on TV, only to be assaulted by bright sunlight, abrasively green grass, and painfully hot sand. Thankfully, there’s an end in sight to the awful onslaught of summer, as evidenced by FOX’s fall schedule. Here is the darkness at the end of the painfully bright tunnel:

Monday: “Terra Nova,” the impressively ambitious show with dinosaurs or something at 8 PM, followed by “House” at 9 PM.

Tuesday: Some show called”Glee” at 8 PM, followed by the new “The New Girl” with Zooey Deschanel at 9, then “Raising Hope” at 9:30.

Wednesday: “The X-Factor,” which is different from “American Idol” in dozens of ways, starts at 8 PM. Then it’s “I Hate My Teenage Daughter” with Jamie Pressly at 9:30. That’s right, “The X-Factor” is on for an hour and a half.

Thursday: The evening starts at 8 PM with the results show of “The X-Factor,” which mercifully is only an hour long. Then after that it’s “Bones” at 9.

Friday: “Kitchen Nightmares” at 8 PM followed by”Fringe” at 9. That’s why it’s the most popular TV night of the week!

Saturday: “Cops” is inexplicably still on the air at 8 PM, followed by reruns and “occasional” “America’s Most Wanted” after that at 9.

Sunday: It’s Sunday night animation, starting whenever all that football stuff is over -”The Cleveland Show,”"The Simpsons,” a new show from Jonah Hill called “Allen Gregory,”"Family Guy,” and “American Dad.”

Well, there you have it. Keep this in mind as you struggle to make it through another punishing summer. And remember, you can always watch reruns. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Good News For Will Forte Fans: Will Forte Is Getting Work http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/good-news-for-will-forte-fans-will-forte-is-getting-work/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/good-news-for-will-forte-fans-will-forte-is-getting-work/#comments Tue, 15 Mar 2011 02:48:37 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=201645 Will Forte continues to get jobs, despite the illogical failure of the movie 'MacGruber'.

Will Forte continues to work, despite the illogical failure of the movie MacGruber. Seriously, he stuck celery up his butt and ran around on screen, and were the domestic box office gods grateful? Not one bit.

No stranger to animated voice work, Forte joins Fox’s Jonah Hill created comedy “Allen Gregory.” The series revolves around a brilliant child (Hill) who’s going to school with regular, non-brilliant children for the first time. Oh my. Forte will pick up a bunch of smaller roles. Hopefully one of those roles will be the part of teenage Abraham Lincoln, and the show will become about teenage Abraham Lincoln, eventually morphing into the second season of “Clone High.”

Forte will also star in the indie film Run and Jump alongside Maxine Peake and Brian F. O’Byrne. The drama, helmed by Steph Green, which I thought was “Seth Green” for a minute and was like, “what…?,” is set to film in Ireland this May. Hopefully, they’ll appreciate a good ghost sex joke between takes. (Collider)

Jonah Hill is continuing his laid back domination on the American comedy landscape by launching his own production shingle, JHF. The actor/writer/producer has also secured a first look development deal with Fox TV. The network has already bought a sitcom script from Hill, that he might direct, and they’ve committed to a seven episode order of his animated series “Allen Gregory,” about a precocious 7 year old’s foray into elementary school. Said Hill of his new unit:

“Now I can finally make that show I’ve always wanted to make about high school kids singing and dancing in some sort of a ‘singing-club’ type program at their school. Wait…what? There already is a show like that on FOX? What? It’s like the most popular show ever? Uh oh… I wanted to create JHF so I and all of the talented writers I know could write funny and interesting television shows that we’d love to see: Allen Gregory being the first, and hopefully many more to follow I am a lucky guy to get to do what I do for a living, and hope to help create that opportunity for talented young writers and performers.”

Let’s hope this means there’s a new era of quirky, naturalistic comedy coming to the airwaves soon, and that JHF takes off in a big way. And by that I mean, let’s hope this guy gives all mid to late twenty something Jewish comedy writers a big fat sack of money. *Cough Cough* Like me.
