A King Without A Hill

| Filed under: TV News

After 13 years of standing on his perfectly manicured front lawn and drinking beer with his pals, the King of the Hill is finally taking a bow from Fox's lineup.

The show got CANCELLED, y'all.

Sad!

Final episodes of the long-running animated comedy will air from 2009 to 2010.

Ratings for the show about the various adventures and misadventures of blue-collar Texan Hank Hill plateaued earlier this season. Hank is voiced by series co-creator and executive producer Mike Judge, who works alongside Kathy Najimy, Brittany Murphy, and Stephen Root.

Fox's American Dad, however, is faring better. The animated comedy about super conservative father Stan Smith and his brood of characters from the creators of Family Guy is being renewed for its fifth season.

The show experienced ratings growth among TV's coveted young adult audiences, as well as among audiences in general.

So, it looks good for series co-creator, executive producer, and voice actor Seth MacFarlane, along with Wendy Schaal, Rachael MacFarlane and Scott Grimes.

We need a Perez cartoon!!!!

    VOTE YES ON PROP 8
    Perez, as usual you're behind the times and don't say it's because you're overseas. This was mentioned a while ago, confirmed last week and reported by Perez on Monday. SAD SAD SAD.
    And you don't need a Perez Cartoon… just look at Fat Albert.

    Who cares? Perez, your other shows sucked in the ratings, you'll never get a cartoon. Plug it to the gay websites.



  3. 3

    You already have a cartoon…this website.



  4. 4

    It was an ok show but I didn't really see it as much.

    Oh no!

    Frank's dad reminds me of McCain! When Shwazenagger (spelling?) criticized Obama's arms or legs I thought of McCain's.

    These cartoons have been hilarious and have hit the nail in the head with life's lessons in a hilarious ways.

    Hope they resuscitate the series in a near future. The void will be felt!

    I am fucking pissed that this show has been cancelled. It is my sanity, and I say that about very few shows. The writing is hilarious and the characters are awesome!



  13. 13

    frish



  14. 14

    Haha I love American Dad, I like it much better than family guy and Im not sure why…



  15. 15

    no, NO you do not need a cartoon, Mario. nobody wants to watch the misadventures in a lame blogger's life. no matter how faggy and how animated it is. it'd just be depressing, and also probably sickening.



  16. 16

    never watched the show…who has time for tv?!



  17. 17

    family guy is way better



  18. 18

    Fox is stupid as hell! Why are they canceling this show?! This was one of the only good shows on TV!!!

    Bummer. I'm so sorry to see it go. : (
    Such an outstanding show on so many levels. It can't be compared to anything else on TV. The characters are incredibly DEEP. There's nothing else like it.



  30. 30

    THAT SUCKS!!!!! i'll miss that show =( American dad sucks NOT FUNNY



  31. 31

    thank god! i hated that show. it wasn't funny at all.



  32. 32

    NOOOOOoooo!!! This show is funny shit.. this is pretty sad… Also.. maybe a Perez cartoon.. but it'd have to be VERY original.. and VERY edgey to compete with what's out there already! Also.. i bet SOMEONE after this will create a little Perez-toon.. even if it's just a youtube vid that you'd probably post and be like "MUST SEE" or something like that… yes we love you.



  33. 33

    KING OF THE HILL IS FUCKING AWESOME.
    ALWAYS MAKES ME LAUGH THAT HANK HILL.

    HAHA.

    Re: annie92 – I'm glad someone else has the brains to think so!!

    One of the most understatedly funny shows on TV in recent memory. It was always well-written with richly developed characters. It will certainly be missed. Seth MacFarlane is the death of comedy. In the words of the great Eric Cartman, "When I make jokes, they are inherent to a story! Deep situational and emotional jokes based on what is relevant and has a point, not just one random interchangeable joke after another!" The Simpsons get it. South Park gets it. King of the Hill got it. None of MacFarlane's shows get it. Enjoy 3x the mediocrity, FOX.

    …Scott Grimes recorded one of the best pop albums of the 80's with Richard Carpenter at the production helm. It is always good when "You've Got A Friend"…

    Re: TorontoMike – You couldn't have said it any better!



  38. 38

    I liked king of the hill way better than american dad… the only reason people like american dad is because a) shock value and b) because seth macfarlane could drop a deuce on something and 5 million people would watch it.

    I hated that show. I can't stand white trash tv..



  41. 41

  42. 42

  43. 43

    no you don't. stay out of my tv.lmaoo



  44. 44

  45. 45

    NOOOOOOO I LOOVE KOTH



  46. 46

    FINALLY!
    I HATED THAT SHIT SHOw



  47. 47

    This sucks! The show was great! It takes a little bit of intelligence to understand and pick up the subtle humor. Maybe that's why it wasn't as popular?
