“Bob’s Burgers” (Fox)

Although “Bob’s Burgers” doesn’t return to Fox’s schedule until midseason, the network has already ordered an additional nine episodes of the animated series, extending the Season 2 episode count to 22.

Fox gave the show — about a family (last name Belcher) who owns a hamburger store — an early second season pick-up last April, after it debuted in January.

“Bob’s Burgers” is scheduled to launch early next year in the 9:30 p.m. spot on Fox’s Sunday animation block, and will take over the spot currently held by Seth MacFarlane’s “American Dad.”
