Last year, FOX gave Bob’s Burgers an early renewal because it takes longer to produce episodes of an animated show. The ratings fell more than 20% last year so will the show be as lucky this time around? Cancelled or renewed for a sixth season? Stay tuned.
Bob’s Burgers follows the Belcher family as they try to make their hamburger diner a success — despite frequent catastrophes and crazy customers. The voice cast includes H. Jon Benjamin, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman, John Roberts, Kristen Schaal, and Larry Murphy.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically the following morning, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
