Fox has decided to switch the airing of Bob's Burgers from 7:30 p.m. ET to a new timeslot at 9:30 p.m. ET on Sundays, starting on Nov. 16. Fans can watch online the season 5 episode 3 via live stream - free for subscribers - below.
Bob's Burgers, which has been a comedic favorite and Emmy award-winning animated hit and follows the lives of the Belcher family, is currently on its fifth season. While the current season started its run on Oct. 5, Sam Barsanti of AV Club noted that its previous 7:30 p.m. timeslot was often pre-empted by sporting events.
"Bob's Burgers will be moving to 9:30, which means it will not only have the luxury of following Family Guy, but also the freedom to no longer worry about constantly being preempted by football games," Barsanti wrote.
Barsanti added that the timeslot switch, which was previously held by the comedy Mulaney, would go into effect "immediately" at Fox.
Season 5 of Bob's Burgers started off with the episode "Work Hard or Die Trying, Girl," where Gene Belcher (Eugene Mirman) runs a rival school musical based on Die Hard with help from his younger sister, Louise (Kristen Schall), which occurs on the same night as the official Wagstaff Middle School musical inspired by Working Girl, where Tina (Dan Mintz) has a part. The next episode, "Tina and the Real Ghost," aired on Nov. 2 and focused on a romance between Tina and a ghost that supposedly lived in the Belcher's basement.
In a press release published by The Futon Critic, Fox mentioned that five new episodes would air between Nov. 16 and Dec. 14 while providing some spoilers on them. Two of those episodes would include themes from the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
The episode airing this Sunday, "Friends with Burger-fits," has Teddy (Larry Murphy) and Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) go to a stuntman bootcamp, while Gene, Louise and Tina make up a new sport and play it in their restaurant's walk-in refrigerator. Fox has announced that the guest voices for this episode include Keegan Michael Key and Brian Huskey.
In the Thanksgiving-themed episode airing Nov. 23, "Dawn of the Peck," Linda (John Roberts) and the children are stuck in a nightmarish Wonder Wharf Thanksgiving fun run, while Bob enjoys himself at home in protest. According to Fox, guest voices include Brian Huskey, Bill Hader, Laura Silverman, Sarah Silverman, Kevin Kline and Zach Galifianakis.
On the Nov. 30 airing of "Best Burger," Bob forgets a crucial ingredient in a burger contest, and the children help him find it in order to save his reputation. Kumail Nanjiani, Andy Daly and Tom Lennon make guest voice appearances.
Bob is forced to step inside his father's diner for the first time in 20 years to attend a Christmas party with his family in "Father of the Bob," while the children compete to make the best homemade gift. The Dec. 7 airing will include the guest voices of Bill Hader, Carl Reiner, Nick Offerman and Jordan Peele.
The last new episode, airing on Dec. 14 as "Tina Tailor Soldier Spy," has Tina going undercover to find out who is leaking the cookie secrets from her old Thundergirls troop. While that is happening, Linda decides to change her hair to a blonde color.
Season 5 of Bob's Burgers can be seen Sundays at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox, and previous episodes from this season can be streamed online through its official site.
