Almost Human got off to a strong start Sunday.
Benefiting from a football lead-in, the sci-fi drama drew 9.1 million viewers and a 3.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the top-rated series of the night and Fox's second-best debut this season after Sleepy Hollow. Lead-outs The Simpsons (4.1 million, 1.8) and Family Guy (4.3 million, 2.2) were flat ...

With its Sunday night "Animation Domination" lineup in a bit of a transition, Fox has given a 13-episode order to the new animated comedy Bordertown from Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane and Mark Hentemann to debut during the 2014-2015 TV season.
The show, created by Hentemann, takes place...

ABC saw growth across the board Sunday.

Now that the St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox are tied 2-2 in the World Series, it's anyone's guess which team will emerge from the postseason victorious. But it seems everyone has an opinion — including Bart Simpson and Stewie Griffin!

Betrayal might be next on the TV chopping block.
The ABC drama, which already bowed to soft numbers last week, tumbled 27 percent to 4 million viewers and a 1.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic Sunday. ABC, which canceled Lucky 7 on Friday, also had ...
Next to Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin, my favorite Halloween TV touchstone is The Simpsons' annual "Treehouse of Horror" special, with Mad Magazine-worthy parodies of things that go "D-oh!" in the night. It's airing unusually early this year in advance of post-season baseball pre-emptions, but what better way to get in the spirit — and as a bonus for the 24th edition (Sunday, 8/7c, Fox), horror maestro Guillermo Del Toro has designed an elaborate "couch gag" opening sequence that's a kaleidoscopic homage to...

Betrayal got off to a rough start on a low night all around.
The infidelity drama debuted Sunday to 5.3 million viewers and a 1.5 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, down six tenths from 666 Park Avenue's premiere last year. Lead-ins Once Upon a Time (8.5 million, 2.6) and Revenge (8.04 million, 2.5) returned down ...
Of all the fantastical things TV brings into our lives, nothing indulges the imagination quite like cartoons. Whether timely (South Park) or timeless (Looney Tunes), animation can truly take us anywhere. The rules — and the budgets — of conventional television don't apply. In short, we just can't help being drawn to them. In honor of TV Guide Magazine's 60th anniversary, we present our list of the best and, often quite literally, the brightest:

If there's one new fall show that everyone seems to have an opinion about, it's Dads, the new Fox comedy from the production team behind Family Guy. Based on the pilot episode alone, the show has been derided as "racist," "offensive" and "morally wrong" by critics. But Fox is using the backlash as a selling point — using such comments in promos for the show to try to foster tension between fans and (in the network's telling) and out-of-touch critics. And the show's producers — Seth MacFarlane, Wellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin of Family Guy, along with former Simpsons showrunner Mike Scully — don't seem to mind the negative attention either.
"We're used to it. That's what we do," Wild tells TVGuide.com.
