Fox has ordered up an additional nine episodes of Bob's Burgers before the animated comedy returns for Season 2, the network announced Monday.
"Last season, Bob's Burgers infused our Sunday lineup with a fresh new voice that was fully embraced by our animation domination fans," Fox's President of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly, said in a statement. "[Executive producers] Loren Bouchard, Jim Dauterive and the team have done an amazing job with the show, and we've got one of the most talented and hilarious voice casts in the business, so we look forward to seeing what...
Wouldn't the world be so much better if we all sang our arguments? God knows, TV would be better if we had more Megan Mullally on it.
Say it ain't so, George. T.R. Knight, once upon a time the beatific BFF of all the Grey's Anatomy gals, is this week's guest rapist on Law & Order: SVU? He can't believe it either, and in this week's episode (NBC, 10/9c), which provides new cast members Kelli Giddish and Danny Pino with their best showcase yet, Knight is thoroughly convincing as a family man who never stops protesting his innocence, though the evidence is damning. Told that DNA doesn't lie, he sputters, "Neither do I!" as he literally sweats out this ordeal. But never forget this is SVU, known for the outlandish twist, so when the DA declares, "You have got to be kidding me!" at a critical juncture, you wonder if she's ever watched this show. Bravo to Knight for his bravura work here. He has been missed.
Parks and Recreation
This show is so damn good, it can even make tax audits a joy.
Even though it lost out at the Emmys, by pairing the bro-com-that-could-be of Ben helping Tom Haverford balance Entertainment 7twenty's books with the Ron's impending audit at the hands of his "hellacious nightmare" of a first ex, Parks and Recreation still brought home comedy gold last night: A staggeringly funny script. Patricia Clarkson in Emmy-worthy shape ...

It will be a sad day in TV land if (as Nielsen history suggests) the powerhouse of CBS' The Big Bang Theory helps deliver the abysmal new How to Be a Gentleman a ratings win over NBC's little-show-that-could-do-better Parks and Recreation.
Here's my Fall Preview take on How to Be a Gentleman (CBS, 8:31/7:31c), a misfire that almost makes me miss last year's Bleep My Dad Says, which wasted the same time period: "Felix and Oscar should sue. The overused Odd Couple premise gets one of its more cringeworthy sitcom workouts in the latest assault on the male mystique — caricatured as a squeaky-voiced priss and a bellowing gym-bunny boor. Actually, mankind should sue." To elaborate: David Hornsby plays a metrosexual metropolitan fusspot whose ...
Send in the clown doctors. Late-night programmer Adult Swim has renewed Childrens Hospital for a fourth season, Cartoon Network announced Tuesday.
The satirical medical series is written by and stars Rob Corddry as a doctor who wears clown makeup and "blood"-splattered scrubs so he can practice what he calls the "healing power of laughter" at a hospital where the staff is more interested in tending to their overactive libidos than treating patients.
Nick Offerman and Paula Pell
The third Tammy in Ron Swanson's life has taken form: Saturday Night Live veteran Paula Pell has been cast as Parks and Recreation's Mama Swanson -- or Tammy, Ground Zero if you like.
Mama Swanson will be introduced early on in Season 4 along with Ron's never-before-seen, super scary first wife Tammy 1, who will be played by Patricia Clarkson.
Series executive producer Mike Schur told TVGuide.com that Ron's mom is "no shrinking violet," and a character breakdown for the role describes her as "a no-nonsense, patriotic, salt-of-the-earth farm woman."
Insiders say Ron (Nick Offerman) may be in for a Tammy tornado when all three Tammys gather in the same episode.
Patricia Clarkson and Nick Offerman
Ending months of speculation -- and stunt casting among Parks and Recreation fans -- Patricia Clarkson has been cast as Ron Swanson's first ex-wife, Tammy 1, TVLine reports.
The oft-mentioned, but never-seen Tammy 1 was first viewed from behind in the Season 3 finale of the NBC comedy. Tammy 1 is not only a scary subject for Ron (Nick Offerman), but also for his very crazy other ex-wife, Tammy 2 (Megan Mullally).
