Things are bad for The Goode Family

The Goode FamilyDespite glowing reviews from our own Danny Gallagher, it looks like The Goode Family is moving. Specifically, it's moving to Friday nights at 8:30 P.M., which is affectionately known by some as the "death slot". No specific reasons for the move are given, but the words "super low ratings" are used in the article to describe its first two weeks, so that could be a clue.

I did catch the premiere episode of the show online and thought it was cute and an interesting 180 degrees from the Hank Hill lifestyle that Mike Judge has been working with for 13 years.

Of course, ABC has been cruel to good animated shows before (coughcoughClerkscoughcough). The show isn't canceled yet, but I give it six episodes. I actually think the show would have fared better on Fox, or given Judge's attempt from this show to skewer extreme liberals, perhaps on Fox News. It probably would have worked better than The 1/2 Hour News Hour.
