'Allen Gregory'

<b>What we said then:</b> "The show offers a style of animation that's clean and different from FOX's typical animated blob design. It is this that will immediately grab viewers' attention. But for all its stylistic appeal, <a href="http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/10/allen-gregory-all-style-no-substance.html"><b>one sizable problem</b></a> remains with 'Allen Gregory' -- it's not funny."<br>
<br>
<b>What we say now:</b> The ratings have been bad from the start. On its debut, it dropped 50 percent of its lead-in from "The Simpsons." And they've not done much since. FOX has more interesting shows in the pipeline including "Napoleon Dynamite" and the return of "Bob's Burgers."<br>
