Thank the comedy gods for midseason replacements, right? The one we’re most looking forward to is Bob’s Burgers, which will land on Fox. It’s an animated series that follows the misadventures of a family-run burger joint that just can’t seem to turn a profit. H. Jon Benjamin — who will also be heard as the lead character on the second season of FX’s Archer this year — voices the misdirected patriarch; Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schaal voice two of his children.

Judging by the newly released trailer below, the show has a very deliberate Simpsons feel, both in comedic tone and from a visual standpoint. As long as the scripts are written well, we can’t see this show not being funny, what with the amazing voice talent on board. Check out the preview below and let us know what you think.
