From memory, FOX's primetime slot on Sunday starts at 7 or 7.30 and Bob's will probably be on then.

NFL Football overruns means Bob's Burgers shows up early next year or it'll get the preemption curse that doomed Futurama during it's broadcast network run.

Reminder that all shows that have been forcibly moved into the 7PM slot/get preempted will almost always canceled.
Futurama and Family Guy are the two that exemplify this the best.

Family Guy was never on at 7pm. According to Wikipiedia it came on Sundays @ 8:30, Thursdays @ 9:00, Tuesday @ 8:30, and then Thursdays @ 8:00, before returning to Sundays @ 9:00.

It wasn't? Huh, well, it's been years(over a decade?) so I guess my memory is slipping

"The White Shadow"

In either case the evidence is pointing to the fact that Bob's Burgers will be cancelled next year at the height of its quality/cult following, and then come back five years later as a shadow of itself quality-wise.

Thank God somebody else remembers that, I thought I would forever be the only one! Before About a Boy, I doubted whether Tyler Labine or Benjamin Stockham would ever have a series renewed... (because they're the only ones still getting roles :smith:)


I have great memories of getting excited to hate-watch lots of these. Like Next Caller. oh my god that could've been historically bad

Anyway, what I originally came here to say is that Selfie is the bad sitcom name to end all bad sitcom names. (RIP Happy Endings :cry:) The only things I know about it are (1) John Cho is in it, and (2) Even John Cho won't be able to save it

You say this like John Cho has a great track record with TV, but his last two shows (Go On and Flash Forward) were canceled within the first season.

He's in one of the shows on the list of series canceled before airing any episodes: The Singles Table.

So quantitatively his track record is less than stellar.

"It's pretty bad, isn't it? I know it's pretty bad. Ever since I can remember..."


:siren: It's thread claiming time :siren:

In order to try to lessen the usual fall confusion and bickering about threads for new shows and returning shows, let's use this thread to organize who's posting what threads for what shows.

Previously-unspoken-now-spoken rule of Dibs:
If someone was the OP of a thread last year, unless they abandoned the thread or post here they won't be posting the OP again, they've got dibs on doing the thread this year. If two threads get posted, the returning OP has dibs.

"Abandoned" should mean that they didn't post for the last half a dozen or so episodes at least and hasn't posted in the thread since.

If you were the OP of a show last year and don't plan on making a thread this year, please post in this thread that you're abandoning the thread. It's not necessary but is a good idea to post ITT for which threads you are re-claiming this year.

If you think a thread is abandoned and want to claim it, post in it and then post in here and a mod will make a ruling.

Only shows that will be returning or starting in the next month or two need new threads, please see the list below. If a show isn't on that list but is starting in that timeframe, you can post to claim it.

New shows are currently up for grabs and claims are made on a first-come-first-served basis unless you wanna work it out with the person who claimed it first.

Please wait until 2 weeks before the show's premiere to post the new thread.

If a thread doesn't have a new OP by 24 hours before the premiere and the OP hasn't said they're working in the previous 24 hours, someone else may grab the thread.

If you're not willing to a little effort into an OP, consider letting someone else take it if they want it. OPs should contain information about what the show is about, who is in it, when it's on, and give people an idea why they'd want to watch it. It doesn't have to be a 10,000 word diatribe with gifs and graphs, but it should be more than three sentences and an emoticon.

After you make a new OP, please post a link to it in the Index Thread.

For the record, I will be continuing on with Sleepy Hollow, Parks and Recreation and The Big Bang Theory, though I'll give up BBT if someone else really wants to take over. I am also claiming Galavant. (Annd I just remembered P&R has a Spring start so...)

*All new shows are up for grabs unless already claimed below.
*A returning show below that does NOT say "Up for grabs" doesn't mean it's up for grabs, it's assumed for now the OP will be returning.
*If you're not the old OP, you can claim returning shows that say "Up for grabs" as the OP has abandoned them.
