Bob's Burgers managed to escape the guillotine for one more season, putting it among the ranks of Family Guy and The Simpsons as the watchmen of the Sunday night animation block on Fox.

Not so lucky was The Cleveland Show, which got the boot, and American Dad, which moved to TBS, a fate only marginally better than death.

Bob's is stepping into its fourth season as a critically acclaimed, though hardly uproarious show. It's sort of like a less-unsettling King of the Hill. No matter. Anything that keeps Jon Benjamin' s voice flowing gently into my ear is a win.
