The debut was up against some serious competition and certainly didn’t come out ahead. It lost 40% of its lead-in audience from the special Halloween installment of The Simpsons. A year ago, FOX was airing the World Series so that’s not a fair comparison. If we look at last November 7th instead, the network was down by 33% in the demo (compared to an episode of The Cleveland Show which registered a 3.0 rating).

After one episode, Allen Gregory is the lowest-rated animated series on FOX and the second-lowest rated scripted series, beating only Fringe. Certainly not a good sign for the show’s future.

These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    I like it. I like the animation, I like Allen Gregory’s questionable intellect. I love his school friends and I adore his sister. Some of the story lines I will agree are too much, but with some fine tuning especially with the dad’s and the sicker story lines I think it has great potential. Most series need warm up time. Give it a chance make it ha ha funny instead of gross funny. I think you’ll have a better chance of survival!

    This show belongs on comedy central at 3am paired between infomercials. I’m trying to watch it to see if it changes because I watch most of the other sunday night fox shows but I’m just not grasping it. On the AG facebook page there are people there that love it but yet don’t explain why. The people that dislike it far outweigh the people that do like it have similar opinions to my own and others posted on here. I just don’t get it. I don’t see it being picked up or making it a full 1/2 season at all…But then again stranger things have happened and *gasps* Jonah Hill is on it. btw…not a fan of his at all.

    Fox is losing its credit with people for alot of serious reasons…Who picks a Cartoon like “Allen Gregory” and puts it in a line up with big hitters like “Family Guy” and “Simpons”.
    I watched “Allen Gregory” twice and have been disgusted by the content. Its not funny at all and the idea behind the story line must have been a crack binge idea.
    Fox is also contending with AMC who is drawing massive support with “Walking Dead” and the new “Hell on Wheels” which both have new episodes every Sunday.

    So I watched “Allen Gregory” like I said I would and I agree with everyone that it is very bad. I just wasn’t impressed with it. The lead character is unlikeable to boot and the animation is flat and uninspired. The self-centered nature of Allen could be played for laughs and I chuckled at some of the dialogue but he just started to annoy me. And the sexual infatuation he has with his principal is grotesque. At least make him have a crush on his teacher. Gotta be real but the gay parents freaked me out.

    I saw like the last 5-10 mins of it. Didn’t make me laugh much. I have a free episode on my PS3 so I’ll check it out to see if I agree.

    This show is all wrong for Fox, but maybe it could find a home on Comedy Central or some other cable channel. The humor (if you can call it that) is way too weird for primetime TV.

    I can honestly say that this was one of the worst television shows that I have ever watched. Unfortunately, I watched the whole thing… Not really sure why, but I did.
