    Gonna bump the thread to include some new info. A new show, entitled "The Great North", premiered last month, and I'm kinda surprised that nobody is really talking about it.

    Other than that, Duncanville returns this summer alongside another new show, entitled "Housebroken."

    Simpsons has been renewed for 2 more seasons, with Bob's and Family Guy being renewed last September. No word on Harts yet, though it's future remains up in the air.

    ...both of which will air on Mondays (well, after the first two episodes of Duncanville air on Sunday 5/23, in place of The Great North and Family Guy). Presumably, Fox has decided to take another pass on So You Think You Can Dance?.

    I believe they’ve said that there is no SYTYCD for 2021.

    Bumped again; Duncanville and Great North were renewed for third seasons before their second seasons began, Bless the Harts has been cancelled.

    Glad they renewed those two. Shame Bless the Harts didn’t make the cut.

    Im kinda shocked Bless the Harts didn't make it. I thought it was one of the better animation shows. I don't care much for Duncanville or Great North so Im really surprised they got picked up for another season.

    I do like Bless the Harts most out of the three. But I like all of them so am glad the other two will keep going. Would’ve been nicer to have all three.

    I'm sure it's related -- at least partly -- to the fact that the showrunners of "The Great North" are also producers on "Bob's Burgers," and one of the creators/voice actors of "Duncanville" is a relatively big star (Amy Poehler). The pedigree of "Bless the Harts" wasn't quite as lofty (even though it did have some big-name vocal talent).

    I am dissapointed Harts was cancelled, and while I'm happy that Duncanville was spared, I could care less about Great North, as while it does seem to look promising, so far it just seems like a version of Bob's Burgers set in Alaska rather than a town by a water pier. Hopefully Fox picks up Harts as a summer show if Housebroken doesn't do to well, or a cable network ends up rerunning it as an experiment for ratings.

    I watched the first episode of Housebroken and found it a complete waste of time. That's it for me. Duncanville, IMHO, is one of their better new entries and I'll keep watching. The Great North is a great snooze. The only reason I recorded it was in case The Simpsons ran late.

    Huh, I never got into Harts, but Duncanville was a hit. The Great North was a slow start but I kind of like it too. I was getting worried because I wasn't getting the new shows and Animation Domination Sundays was getting rather thin for me.
