Bob's Burgers is no longer on the bubble!  EW's James Hibberd is reporting that Fox has picked up animated series Bob's Burgers

Bob's Burgers got off to a big start following an NFL playoff game, but then it waned for a bit before picking up some steam in recent weeks.  Its most recent original scored a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating.  This past Sunday a repeat (that followed a repeat of The Simpsons) scored a respectable (for a repeat) 1.7 adults 18-49 rating.

With all the other Sunday animated shows already renewed, Hibberd speculates Fox might expand animations to a second night next season. I'd guess not and that there will be some sort of Sunday schedule rotation and/or one of the shows (American Dad, Cleveland or Bob's Burgers) will get the 7:30p Sunday slot.

Look for an officially official press release sometime soon. Update: here's the official release.
