H. Jon Benjamin, Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schaal lend their voices to what might just be the funniest animated show on the air right now. And while it has received very mixed reviews (everything from high praise to the New York Times saying “Some viewers won’t find much of anything in Bob’s Burgers funny…”) I have laughed hysterically at every episode. I can find common ground between Bob’s Burgers and lots of other great shows. It has a low key sense of humor like King Of The Hill. It has quite a bit of the absurdist nature of 30 Rock. I could go on.
The fact of the matter is that Bob’s Burgers might just be the first mainstream animated program for the alternative comedy set.
