Entertainment Weekly has been continuing its
band-wagon jumping coverage of Bobs Burgers’ 3rd Season which is set to premier September 30th on FOX and recently had a chance to talk with Jon Benjamin(“Bob”) and Loren Bouchard about the upcoming season. Of particular note is when Jon was asked about his recent Emmy nomination:
“I feel like I had very little to do with it. I can’t say that I’m excited [about it personally], but I am excited for the show. I think it’s great. And actually, I’m surprised [Benjamin's other show] Archer wasn’t nominated too — that was a big blow. I actually found out about Bob’s Burgers [getting nominated] from[Archer showrunner] Adam Reed because we were recording Archer the morning they did the announcements. It was like 10 a.m., and I hadn’t heard anything about it, because I guess they do it at like, what, 5 a.m., or some other ridiculous time in the morning. So I was in the studio and he was like, ‘Congratulations!’ — but kind of bitterly. And I’m like, “Wha? Huh?” I had no idea, I didn’t even consider it.”
He’s such a modest guy isn’t he?? We’ve been talking more about Bob’s Burgers recently than we have about Family Guy or any of the other shows probably because The Simpsons got a lot of shine last year so its good see this show getting some respect. Check out the recent articles about the announced guest stars and keep it locked here as there are a lot of imitators but NO ONE can duplicate the coverage Bubbleblabber brings you for Animation Domination news.
