Bob's Burgers (Fox)
Voices: H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman, Kristen Schaal
Status: Airing Sundays at 8:30 p.m.
The only series on Fox's Sunday night animated-comedy block that doesn't boast Matt Groening or Seth MacFarlane's name in the credits is also, on the low, the best half-hour of the night. Created by Loren Bouchard, the same mind behind the equally genius-yet-underrated Home Movies, Bob's Burgers follows the Belcher family and their ups-and-downs while running a family burger joint.
All of the materials are what you'd expect from a animated family workplace comedy—Bob (voiced by Archer's H. Jon Benjamin) and wife Linda engage in sexual misadventures, youngest child Louise (the tremendous Kristen Schaal) is a sociopath in the making, a rival family runs a restaurant right across the street, etc.—but Bouchard's unique sense of humor and the uncompromising eccentricity of the characters makes Bob's Burgers a solid standout. We're hoping that this is the season it blows up to Family Guy proportions.
