Fox's Animation Domination Sunday block has been fairly steady over the past several years, with The Simpsons, King of the Hill, Family Guy, and American Dad! holding down the fort. But that's about to change with the addition of some new blood.
The first to join the lineup will be Sit Down, Shut Up, a new animated comedy from Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz. Today Fox announced that the new program would debut on April 19 at 8:30 p.m., likely taking the spot of King of the Hill, which is ending its 13-episode run on the network.
Sit Down, Shut Up is based on the Australian comedy hit of the same name that follows the faculty of a school that is more interested in their own gain that those of the students. The very impressive voice cast features Jason Bateman, Kristen Chenoweth, Will Forte, Will Arnett, Henry Winkler, Nick Kroll, Cheri Oteri, and Tom Kenny.
Expected to join the animation block next fall is the Family Guy spin-off The Cleveland Show.
