TV show description:
Though animated, this situation comedy from creator Mike Judge takes a realistic look at American life.

Set in Arlen, Texas, propane gas salesman Hank Hill (Mike Judge) lives with his substitute Spanish teacher wife, Peggy (Kathy Najimy); their awkward and non-sports enthusiast 13-year-old son, Bobby (Pamela Adlon); niece and wannabe beautician Luann Platter Kleinschmidt (Brittany Murphy); and Ladybird Hill, Hank’s beloved bloodhound. Each episode follows their day-to-day lives and focuses on issues at work, at school, and with one another.

Hank also spends much of his time obsessing over his lawn and muttering about Bobby being more interested in comedy than football. His friends and neighbors include Dale Gribble (Johnny Hardwick), who is oblivious to his wife Nancy’s (Ashley Gardner) affair, suicidal Bill Dauterive (Stephen Root), and womanizer Boomhauer (Mike Judge).

Also playing an important role in the lives of the Hills is Hank’s father Cotton (Toby Huss), Cotton’s second wife and former kindergarten classmate of Hank, Didi (Ashley Gardner), and their infant son, Good Hank or “G.H.,” whose name leads Hank to realize that he was a disappointment to his father.

I think that adult swim will be able to find a audience for this great show, like it did for the Family Guy. Let’s just home the Mike Judge will be greatful and return the favor by letting adult swim play the new episodes.

One more thing the goode family isn’t funny.

I hope ABC picks up KoH and runs with it, KoH is an America icon as much as The Simpsons. Fox is the same network that brought us crap like 24, the show about a spoilt little *hit that gets rewarded for bad off camera behavior… Or the Snore Chronicles, and a poor reply of the X Files with a kook doctor and unbelievable writing with Fringe.

Lose something we all depend on and continue the horrible American Dad or worse, Family Guy, with characters that include spousal abusive parents, a daughter who’s a closet whatever, a sex offender, a talking dog, a talking baby with deep sick issues, a minority with racial overtones, mockery of law enforcement/ insulting the disabled and the pregnant, all from an over paid producer that needs professional help that continues insulting his religion along with most intelligent people while the Fox Marketing Staff continue selling this crap in the toy stores.

All that said, KoH gets an ax because of low ratings right??? Can anyone get this to Rupert Murdoch… Maybe he sees the value of keeping this show!!!
