King of the Hill snags cushy timeslot between The Simpsons and Family Guy (thefutoncritic.com)


    HANK AND THE GANG ARE BACK WITH THE 11TH SEASON PREMIERE OF KING OF THE HILL SUNDAY, JANUARY 28, ON FOX

    One of the longest-running comedies on television, KING OF THE HILL returns for its 11th season at a new date and time, Sunday, Jan. 28 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX (previously announced for Sunday, Jan. 21, 7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT).


American Dad returns to 9:30P, while The War at Home moves to Thursdays. It really is Animation Domination. AD had been doing really well at 8:30. It doesn't seem likely, though, that the show's going away anytime soon, so the move won't hurt. It'll be nice to see Hank and co. snag some good ratings (hopefully).

P.S. I know that KotH has never *not* been in primetime since primetime includes the 7P hour on Sundays - I really just wanted to use the alliteration.

EDIT: Damn, forgot the icon...

Does this mean impending doom for The War At Home? Can it if I ask really nicely?

Awesome! I love King of the Hill. It's been my favorite show on TV over the past 10 years.

Not if it involves taking the daughter on the show off my TV screen.
It's False

I'm absolutely shocked that this decision wasn't made from day one. I mean, you've got three animated shows on a two-hour block being marketed as a haven of animation. From the first night, I wanted to shout at the screen, "But Hank Hill is RIGHT THERE!"

Thankfully, this mistake was rectified and now Michael Rapaport can go to Thursdays and die in Sitcom Hell with Brad Garrett.

Now wait just a second, "Til Death" is a damn fine show and I will not have its good name sullied by the likes of Michael Rapaport!

Oh yeah, one more thing ...

    And just to toss this in here somewhere, but am I wrong in assuming that the ONLY reason that "The
    War at Home" was brought back for another season was so that FOX could run with this stupid "Four
    Fathers of Comedy" ad campaign that they've got going for Sunday nights?

    If so (and I can think of no other logical reason to bring this show back), then I've got a little hint for the
    FOX execs ... did you guys know that Mike Judge (you remember, the guy that you keep sticking with
    awful time slots?) has decided - for some inexplicable reason - to bring "King of the Hill" back for
    another season? If not, then you've probably also forgotten that Hank Hill is also a father (and a cartoon
    character to boot!) so he would have been a much better fit alongside Homer and Peter and Stan than
    the wiggity-wiggity-wack Michael Rapaport.

    Just a heads-up if any of you guys should be reading this ...


Glad to see someone at FOX visits the W ...

Michael Bluth was a damn fine father. He's also way out of the league of those three crap shows, but I would've taken it.
