Bob's BurgersFox has ordered a new batch of 'Bob's Burgers.'

(Listen, people, the pun writes itself.)

The network announced today that its freshman animated series will return for a second season in the fall.

"'Bob's Burgers' has proved to be a perfect neighbor to our slate of fan-favorite animated families this year," said Fox president of entertainment Kevin Reilly. "The series has found its own really unique, irreverent voice and is doing consistent business for us on Sundays, so we're excited to serve up another season to the fans."

The show follows a family-run burger joint.

I normally don’t get a chance to watch Bob’s Burgers on TV all that much so I’m glad people like me have other options. A benefit to being a DISH Network customer and employee is that I can watch thousands of titles for free at www.dishonline.com, this includes Bob’s Burgers!

Bob's Burgers is one of the stupidest shows I have ever wasted my time watching!! I CAN"T BELIEVE it is going to go another season. Who ever actually watches and enjoys this show must be lacking lots of intelligence!!! I have given it many chances to make my wife and I laugh and it is just AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NEVER LAUGHED ONCE!!!!!!! I am COMPLETELY SHOCKED it is going another season. Thought it was going to get pulled immediately it was so GOD AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Feel pretty much the same about The Cleveland Show as well!! Amazing what passes for entertainment these days???

Not a fan of Bob's Burgers or the Cleveland show but sure do miss the Family Guy American Dad line up. Seems those are coming out only in dribs and drabs.

Love Bob's Burgers, but I'm actually surprised it's getting renewed. Didn't think it's [adultswim] brand of humor would mesh well with FOX's Sunday night lineup.

Just don't kill off Leonard's chararcter. He's the only grounded person on the whole show, and he' s suffered the other's angst enough! I see him leaving to be head of CDD or something!

I'm glad to see Bob's Burgers getting another season. Wasn't too thrilled with the first two episodes but it's growing on me.
