Family Guy and Bob's Burgers Renewed at Fox

at .

Fox is not ready to part ways with some of its most popular animated series. 

The network has handed out renewals to Family Guy and Bob's Burgers. 

Neither show was in any danger, and both were expected to be back for the 2019-20 TV season. 


Still, it's good to know that additional seasons of these two shows are officially in the works. 

The renewal for Family Guy is for the 18th season, while Bob's Burgers has secured its 10th season. 

It's crazy to think that Family Guy was once canceled back in 2003.

Back then, it seemed like all hope was lost and that fans were going to be left with just three seasons. 

Family Guy Season 17 is averaging 2.7 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the demo in live + same day figures.

This puts the series right on par with last season. Steady is the new up in the TV business, so there's that. 

Family Guy airs Sundays on Fox in an animation domination block. It's unclear whether the network will keep that Sunday line-up intact next season. 

It would make sense to, but a lot of changes are coming to Fox. 

As for Bob's Burgers, it has moved to a later slot this season but is averaging 2.8 million viewers and a 1.2 rating. 

It is currently up 20 percent year-to-year. It is the fifth highest-rated scripted series on Fox.

The join The Simpsons which was renewed last week for two seasons. 

While many thought we would get more Fox renewals during TCA, there wasn't that much news to go around. 

The animated shows have a longer production time, so their renewals were probably ironed out well in advance for that reason.

Family Guy Quotes

Oh, Lois just texted. Burgers or meatballs for dinner? I'll text back for you. Same things, bitch, just different shapes.

Stewie [to Peter]

Brian: You know, Connie, I think I have a theory about why you're such a bitch.
Connie: Excuse me?
Meg: Brian, let's just go.
Brian: No, no, no, no, no. Now hang on... hang on, Meg, hang on. You see, Connie, you're popular because you developed early and started putting out when you were 12. But now you can't stand to look at yourself in the mirror because all you see is a whore. So, you pick on Meg to avoid the inevitable realization that once your body's used up by age 19, you're going to be a worn-out, chalky-skinned burlap sack that even your step-dad won't want. How's that? Am I in the ballpark?
(Connie cries and runs)
