    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

    How did you feel about the first season of Harts and the pilot of Duncanville last night?

    Expect Duncanville to be more popular because there's no football and Wiz Khalifa is promoting the show.

    Out of curiosity, I gave the pilot a try while I did hear about this show like not so long ago (the fact that it came from the Scully couple, and also Amy Poehler, caught my attention). And I thought it was pretty nice. It's clear that it's waiting to find its groove but as it is, it's a pilot that works quite well, a bit too obvious in its pilot functions, sometimes forced and quite too fast-paced but pretty good regardless. I like that down-to-earth side (with some goofy jokes sprinkled in) and it didn't feel like a clone of another Fox series to me. Also while it wasn't a laugh riot, it had some funny moments (my favorites are probably the assassin in the car and the cool guy - forgot his name - helping someone who's choking just by saying "Stop choking") and even a heartwarming side in this regular, down-to-earth family's depiction. I guess it will improve on some elements afterwards (and find its footings), which is a good thing, and as it is, this first episode was pleasant, let's hope the rest will be at least just as good.

    I hope by the end it’s just as good as Bless the Harts is. And I hope it gets a S2 order too.

    This has got to be one of the worst pilots I've seen in a while.

    Right from the start, you know something is off. Usually a show doesn't throw in celebrity cameos until after they've been on for a while, but we get one almost right away, and it's just some guy going "Hey, I'm Alex Honnold from Free Solo".

    Most of the characters act in such an over-the-top manner that you never get attached to any of them. Instead they're just annoying. It doesn't help that all the dialogue they're given isn't all that engaging. The jokes are bland and flavorless, either being a lame reference, a "hilarious" nod to social media or a line that's supposed to be quirky but is just dumb.
    The animation is energetic to say the least, but almost too much so. Even Duckman has a few pauses here and there between all the craziness. Here however I got the feeling of drinking 20 Red Bulls in a row, constantly on the move.
    Which would maybe be fine if at least what was happening was interesting, but it's not. There's barely any time given to the actual plot, so when they try to give it some emotional weight after Duncan accidentally crashes into a tree his parents remember from when they were young, it falls completely flat. It's literally resolved in just 2 minutes.
    The voice acting is okay generally, but Amy Poehler was miscast in the role of Duncan, not coming off as a convincing teenage boy's voice.

    As for positives, Zach Cherry has a good lowkey voice as Wolf, and the theme song is decent enough. 2.5/10

    I said I'd give this show a few more tries, but they better step up their game fast.

    A lot of Simpsons fans are mixed on Bless the Harts just wanted to know what you thought about the season if you saw all of it?

    I have mixed feelings about the pilot.

    It's a pretty funny show at first sight​, but the plot line is pretty predictable. The animation style of the show kinda reminds me a lot like Sanjay and Craig or Bob's Burgers. Well, maybe it just seems that way partly 'cause I'm not much into those two... However, I'll give it a shot. I guess.

    Yeah I hope it gets better like Bless the Harts did. Especially near the end like 7 out of the 10 episodes are actually pretty good with 3-4 of them being great, the other three are just okay. Hope Duncanville can be better or just as good for a S2 renewal.

    Not gonna lie, I actually like this show. It's humor reminds me of The Cleveland Show which I did indeed like.

    I honestly did not like Cleveland Show but Duncanville seems like a winner. Like Bless the Harts, I hope it gets a S2 order.

    I didn't like The Cleveland Show either. I liked this much more. It was charming and the humor was more subtle and not a joke every minute. I hope it gets a renewal like Bless the Harts.

    Mike Scully is showrunner so you'd see more of the Simpsons in there than Family Guy (which literally is a joke every minute now). The last family guy episode short cuts had unnecessary jokes every scene.
