TV Review: Bob's Burgers

I loved King of the Hill. I still watch it almost daily now that it's in syndication. As much as I loved KOTH, I hated The Cleveland Show. Hated It! When I heard the opening notes of the annoying theme song (“My name is Cleveland Brown…”) I knew it was time to take a shower or a bath, walk the dog or do something other than watch that damn show!

So I was curious about Bob’s Burgers, the show that was taking The Cleveland Show’s post-Simpsons spot. I watched it for about 10 minutes. Didn’t laugh. Didn’t like it. 8:30 PM on Sunday is still prime showering and dog-walking time.

First off, I didn’t like the animation. Something about it felt off to me. Secondly, I didn’t think it was funny at all. Here's one joke: the burger of the day was The Child Molester. It was funny because it came with candy! Get it? See, child molesters often use candy to lure children. If you didn’t get that, one of Bob’s kid was there to explain it. Ha!

I’ll pass.
