Sit Down, Bump Off
FOX downgrades its new Aussie-inspired animated comedy to a new timeslot after just 2 weeks.
After just two episodes, FOX has bumped the US animated adaptation of Aussie sitcom Sit Down, Shut Up from its 8:30pm timeslot that followed The Simpsons.
From next week it moves to 7pm -a low-rated hour that’s only considered “primetime” on Sundays.
The remaining episodes of the final season of King of the Hill will take its place.
Despite the strong voice cast and Mitch Hurwitz on board, the show was panned by the critics as “basic and banal.”
Few acknowledged that even in its original form it didn’t work in Australia either.
