Fox sure hopes you're hungry because the network is serving up a fourth season of Bob's Burgers. Fox has ordered 22 new episodes of the animated comedy, the network announced Tuesday.
It's a little past 8:30 p.m. on a weekday on the Warner Bros. lot and on the set of his talk show, Rove LA, host Rove McManus has one very important question: "Is any of this show going to make it to the telly?"
His show has already been taping for more than an hour, but it's a fair question. That's because this is the first time the Australian native has to deal with the c-word: censors. Season 2 — which premieres Saturday at midnight/11c on TV Guide Network with guests Russell Brand, Adam Lambert and 30 Rock's Kristen Schaal — marks the first time Rove LA will air new episodes in the U.S. McManus is still figuring out just what he can get away with here in the states.

Things are always a bit spooky on Disney Channel's new hit animated series Gravity Falls, but the show returns Friday with a special Halloween-themed episode that aspires to even greater chills.
Gravity Falls revolves around siblings Dipper (Jason Ritter) and Mabel (Kristen Schaal) as they spend time with their eccentric great uncle ("Grunkle Stan," voiced by creator Alex Hirsch) over the summer. So how does the show pull off a Halloween episode? Simple: In the twisted town of Gravity Falls, Halloween is also celebrated in the summer, complete with "Jack-o-Melons" and trick or treating in the sunlight.
Over the course of 30 Rock's run, we've met most of TGS' extended family: Tracy's wife, Jack's brawling siblings and Donaghy matriarch Colleen, Liz's folks and stunted brother, Jenna's mom, even Lutz's look-alike mother. But the one (albeit murky) bloodline that has eluded fans so far has been the kin of hillbilly page-turned-janitor Kenneth Parcell (Jack McBrayer). But no more!
It's The X-Files meets Twin Peaks — but animated, and for kids. Disney Channel's Gravity Falls, which airs a new episode Aug. 24 at 9:30/8:30c, may be unlike any other cartoon out there. Jason Ritter and Kristen Schaal play Dipper and Mabel Pines, siblings who are forced to spend the summer with their eccentric great-uncle in a town where very weird things happen. Creator Alex Hirsch says he conceives each episode like a "little movie," as the show explores its versions of urban legends. We asked him to scare up some reasons why we should investigate Gravity Falls.
