FOX Upfront Presentation and Preview: A Confident Network and a 'Glee'-Heavy Show

Outside the FOX upfrontYesterday, FOX unveiled its Upfront presentation at the historic Beacon Theatre on Manhattan's Upper West Side. One of the reasons why TV critic types like the upfront presentations, even though they're designed and presented for advertisers and not journalists, is the potential for potshots from the executives and painful banter from the network's stars.

Neither really took place at FOX's presentation. Aside from network entertainment president Kevin Reilly getting a dressing down from Jane Lynch as 'Glee's' Sue Sylvester -- she made fun of his teeth, hair and "local weatherman" look -- and a slight jab at NBC from Reilly -- which, given his history with Jeff Zucker and company, is almost a reflex for him -- the presentation was straightforward and confident. That's what you get when you're first in primetime for six consecutive years, as the network's execs claimed.

But between the executives' celebratory talk and the rousing rendition of Madonna's 'Like A Prayer', which closed things out, FOX showed everyone previews of their new shows. And the new slate is interesting to say the least. Clips and comments are after the jump.

Fox Orders 13 Episodes of 'Bob's Burgers'

Fox has announced a new addition to its Sunday night animated comedy bloc.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the network will serve up 13 new episodes of 'Bob's Burgers.' The show is based on Loren Bouchard ('Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist,' 'Home Movies') and Jim Dauterive's ('King of the Hill')12-minute presentation, with a voice cast that includes H. Jon Benjamin, 'Flight of the Conchords' alum Kristen Schaal (pictured), Eugene Mirman and 'Important Things with Demetri Martin' writer Dan Mintz.

The show centers around Bob, a struggling burger joint owner, his "tightly wound wife" and their three reckless kids. Bouchard told the Reporter that the original idea was to write a show about a family of cannibals, but the latter aspect was ultimately dropped -- probably for the best, considering the family runs a burger joint.

Bob's Burgers heading to Fox

by Brad Trechak, posted Dec 1st 2009 11:27AM
Bob's BurgersFrom the creator of Home Movies comes a new animated show on Fox. Bob's Burgers will be about a guy (Bob) who runs a burger grill at an East Coast seaside town with his "tightly wound wife and three unhelpful kids".

Fox is obviously returning to form with another animated family comedy, as if their entire Sunday night line-up weren't enough. I yearn for animated shows that dare to be a little different like South Park, Futurama and The Venture Bros.

However, the show involves hamburgers and as a hamburger fan I may give it a shot. It is a bit of a concern that Fox is overdoing it with the animated shows. Perhaps Cartoon Network and Fox should just switch names and be done with it.

Also, based on the photo doesn't the main character look a little like Luigi from the Mario Brothers? Will he have a thick Italian accent as well?
