Two hijacks on one weekend, sorry everyone. This really is a Lost blog, I promise.
Tonight FOX is adding another cartoon to it’s Sunday night schedule. This time Seth Mcfarlane isn’t doing half the voices. This new cartoon was created by Mitch Hurwitz, the genius behind Arrested Development. It makes me very sad that he had to go back to FOX with this show, but I guess that’s what it took to get it on the air.
Sit Down, Shut Up isn’t going to be as funny as Arrested Development, nothing ever will be, but if it can capture any of that hilarity it will be good. The voice cast is great, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Will Forte, Kenan Thompson, Henry Winkler, Kristin Chenoweth and Cheri Oteri. These aren’t just hilarious people, they have great voices too (exept Jason Bateman, I’m glad he’s there but his voice isn’t memorable).
Anywho, I think we should give this show a few chances simply for Mitch Hurwitz’ sake. The Arrested Development movie is still on the way, and this is a nice diversion until then.
Sundays at 8:30 on FOX.
