TV show description:      
Bob Belcher (H. Jon Benjamin) is a third generation restaurateur who operates Bob’s Burgers with the help of his wife and their three kids. He has big ideas about the food he serves but knows little about customer service or how to run a business. Despite his greasy counters, lousy location, and occasionally spotty service, Bob is convinced his burgers speak for themselves. The restaurant is constantly struggling and there are times when it doesn’t seem like his family is on his team.

Bob’s wife, Linda (John Roberts), supports his dream through thick and thin but is getting a bit tired of the thin part. Eldest daughter Tina (Dan Mintz) is a 13-year-old hopeless romantic with minimal social skills. Middle child Gene (Eugene Mirman) is an aspiring musician and prankster who’d rather be serving up jokes than burgers. Youngest daughter Louise (Kristen Schaal) is the only member of the family who loves the restaurant like her dad. Unfortunately, Louise has an off-balance sense of humor and lots of energy which can sometimes bring more trouble than assistance.

The location of Bob’s Burgers certainly doesn’t help business. It’s located next door to It’s Your Funeral Home and Crematorium, down the street from an oceanside amusement pier called Wonder Wharf, and right across the street from Jimmy Pesto’s Pizzeria, Bob’s main competition.

    This show is a breath of fresh air in a sea of worthless scripted and unwatchable realty shows. Bobs burgers is fantastic, love the main guy ( Ben from Dr. Katz ) but all of the family members are twisted in their own way, makes for very entertaining tv.

    I love this show and hope it’s on for awhile. Anybody who thinks it’s crude or perverse should watch and episode of “Family Guy”. Keep “Bob’s Burger’s” on the air!!!

    I’m not too much into this show either… I can’t believe this.. but they happened to make a TV series that has an even lesser plot than The Simpsons, Family Guy and American Dad. The graphics aren’t even that good… At least The Simpsons, Family Guy and American Dad has smoother lines that don’t look like they did in the ’90s… We have enough comedy from those three… why add more nonsense? I’m not trying to knock The Simpsons, Family Guy and American Dad.. but they seem better established and SMARTER (I can’t believe I just said that those series were smart.. heh) than this one…

      Soooo…. you’ll only watch it if they take it off the air? Just joking, I know what you mean, but I can’t agree. This show is redifining prime time animated television and about time too.
