The third season of Bob’s Burgers typically airs Sunday nights on the FOX network. Once again, the sitcom’s cast includes H. Jon Benjamin, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman, John Roberts, and Kristen Schaal.

Below are the TV show’s ratings for the 2012-13 season, the best way to tell if Bob’s Burgers is going to be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season.

    Don’t watch it if you don’t like it! This is a funny show but don’t get one week up in ratings then down then up…

  3. sailordude says

    please cancel Bob’s Burgers so it will not be shown in syndication forever, it has NO redeeming points and is not funny. It will only make more young people idiots watching it every day after school.

  4. Abigail says

    Ohhh please let this continue! Just watched two episodes just now and will probably watch some more tonight. I didn’t see the 2nd or 3rd episode because of the FOX channel with having football or sport in general air instead of the shows.
