The “Gravity Falls” creator is leaving Disney for Fox’s primetime animation line-up.
Fox, which once considered selling “Simpsons”-branded beer “detrimental to children,” has changed its tune.
The new primetime series produced by Augenblick Studios will debut on May 31st.

While Fox’s Sunday night lineup was dubbed Animation Domination in May 2005, it did not officially become all-animated until 2010. Now, the announcement of their fall 2014 schedule reveals that the cartoons will be ceding some of their Sunday night territory to live-action comedies “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “Mulaney,” which will be taking over the 8:30 and 9:30 time slots, respectively.
Fox’s experiment with late-night animation didn’t go as well as they had anticipated. The network will end its Saturday late-night animation block ADHD (Animation Domination High-Def) in June, less than a year after it began. It was originally created as a replacement for the cancelled sketch comedy show “MADtv.”
Seth MacFarlane’s stable of animation writers have finally been given a dumping ground for all their offensive Mexican jokes and stereotypes.
