Last year, ratings for the Bob’s Burgers TV show on FOX rose a little, and of course, the series was renewed. Now that it is back for a ninth season at a new time, can it hold steady or even further increase its audience. The season nine premiere was also the program’s 150th episode, so the network might feel like it’s time to wrap it up, or decide to go for the next milestone — a tenth season. Will Bob’s Burgers be cancelled or renewed for season 10? Stay tuned. **Status update below.
An animated FOX comedy, Bob’s Burgers centers on Bob Belcher (H. Jon Benjamin). This third generation restaurateur operates Bob’s Burgers with the help of his charming and musical wife, Linda (John Roberts). The couple’s three kids pitch in, too. The awkward Tina (Dan Mintz) is their eldest daughter. Middle child, Gene (Eugene Mirman) is whimsical, if a bit goofy. The clever and even cunning Louise (Kristen Schaal) is their youngest. While Bob has big ideas about burgers, his location is lacking. Meanwhile, the rest of the clan falls short on service.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
