    It premieres 2/16? Then either it airs new episodes on either (or both) Palm Sunday or Easter, or it airs a doubleheader at some point, as there are only 14 Sundays from 2/16 through the Sunday before Memorial Day weekend.

    Even if ratings are in the 1 million viewers range (though to post-footballe season premiere), I got a feeling theyll probably renew it and then 1 or 2 episodes will be held back for season 2.

    Also, there was a brief first look at the first shows art style. I think its safe to say that its looking to be more appealing than Bless the Harts so thankfully people wont judge it from its cover.

    Bless the Harts is animated by Titmouse, who animated Big Mouth.

    Amy Poehler will be talking to herself haha. Also Mike Scully is co-creator so expect some Simpsons thrown into there. In the series premiere, Duncan learns from his mom how to drive!

    It seems fun! The clips are funny and I don't think we should be negative.

    I don't understand with what criteria people say this isn't going to last for long. Does anyone else remember another new animated show "Bless The Harts". They said it wouldn't make it, but now it has been renewed for a 2nd season!

    I like the description about a teenage boy, who is average in every way and is trying to figure things out. I think this could be interesting! I especially like Duncan and Annie, both played by Amy Poehler. She is just amazing!

    The only thing that worries me is that the co-creator of the show is Mike Scully. We know how Scully changed things for "The Simpsons" and this seems a little like a clone of them. I wouldn't like to have a sociopathic troublemaker, aka the new Bart Simpson. I like him, in some ways, but not as much! He was never my favourite character, but he is one of my Top 6 favourites on the show!

    I enjoyed the clips too. Simpson's Fan I agree with you. We don't need anymore sociopaths. I hope Duncan doesn't go down that path.

    Glad to know someone else enjoyed Bless the Harts and not just me. Im hoping Harts and Duncanville can replace Simpsons and Family Guy ushering a new era in Foxs animation block.

    @orangemo Yes, what is wrong with people these days! We have to be a little more open-minded. "Bless The Harts" is great and "Duncanville"! Not everything has to be like "The Simpsons"

    Surely, plenty of other shows followed the same structure, but if we think about it, isn't this what made "The Simpsons", such a great show? A lot of people have expressed their hatred on "Family Guy" and Seth MacFarlane, because he copied the once greatest show on TV and while I have mentioned it in some of my other posts, I do think "Family Guy" has some potential into it. I mean, why the writers made all those episodes about character development? They could have just gone with the old, classic, dark humour, but I can see that they want to give them depth and feelings, like normal people and not always have them killing each other, swearing or doing drugs.

    As for the new animated series, I believe it is negativity that drags some of them down, like "Family Guy", which was never really accepted by it's audience.

    This first episode was something I enjoyed, but I feel like it was partly a Marge Be Not Proud ripoff (which makes sense since Mike Scully wrote that episode)

    Wow I was impressed by how funny and heartwarming this was. Its definitely not a family guy clone and its more grounded like Bless the Harts and Bobs Burgers. This episode beats Harts first but will it beat the rest who knows?

    While I anticipated this show more than Bless the Harts, I thought the pilot episode was slightly worse than BTH. After all, it is the first episode, and most TV shows don't usually find their footings until later on. So like the Harts, here's hoping it can improve. 5/10
