Fox has had some great ratings success with animated sitcoms like The Simpsons and Family Guy. Will Golan the Satiable be a monster of a success? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
Golan the Satiable began as a half-dozen animated shorts (considered the first season) and aired on Fox in late night on the weekends. The series revolves around the strange relationship between a mighty godlord named Golan (Rob Riggle) and a macabre, nine-year-old girl named Dylan Beekler (Aubrey Plaza). The voice cast also includes John Dimaggio and Tara Strong.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am »

Batman has joined the just formed Justice League in order to keep tabs on Superman, a mistrust that is complicated by Superman’s bad (but well meaning) clone, Bizarro, and his creation of the Bizarro League. But, there is an even bigger threat that forces the two Leagues to join forces. Yes, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Cyborg; and their bizarro-universe clones, Batzarro, Bizarra, Greenzarro and Cyzarro, must team-up to stop Darkseid and save the galaxy!
Wherever there is chaos and destruction, Superman’s mixed-up clone, Bizarro, is not far way. He hears the opposite of what is said, says the opposite of what he means and does the opposite of what is right. The Man of Steel »

Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress -- at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite. In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments. Concrete Jungle: The Series Tweetable Logline: "Concrete Jungle" is an animated comedy about humans and animals coexisting in New York City Elevator Pitch: "Concrete Jungle" is an animated comedy about humans and animals coexisting in New York City.

The Pendleton Ward-created cartoon, which is currently airing its sixth season and has been renewed for a seventh, centers on the adventures of a human boy named Finn and his best friend dog Jake, who fight to protect their beloved Land of Ooo from the villainous Ice King, who is usually searching for his coveted Princess Bubblegum.
Chris McKay, who exec-produced The Lego Movie and has been tapped to direct The Lego Batman Movie, and Roy Lee, who produced The Lego Movie and is producing McKay’s Batman feature, are teaming to produce the adaptation.

Debuting in 2010, Adveture Time has become one of the weirdest, subservise, and downright entertaining cartoons in recent memory, developing a huge fan base among teenagers and adults, as well as it's target kid audience. Following teenager Finn and his magical talking dog Jake (voiced by veteran John Dimaggio, better known as Bender from Futurama) as they get into numerous, utterly barmy adventures in the magical Land of Ooo (actually a post apocalyptic earth ravaged by nuclear war, just one of the many details of the shows hidden, dark mythology), it has become a ratings hit for Cartoon Network, and has seen a number of high profile celebrities lend their vocals, including Neil Patrick Harris, Mark Hamil, Ron Perlman, George Takei, Matthew Broderick, and Andy Samberg. Now Adventure Time will be coming to the big screen with Warner Bros. charging The Lego Movie producer Roy Lee and the upcoming Lego Batman »

Let’s just get this out of the way now: Amongst we ComicMixers, the esteemed (and far prettier) Emily S. Whitten is a bigger and better fan of voice actors than I shall ever be. With that being said… aren’t voice actors amazing?
You see, in between bouts of crippling sinusitis and binge-watching Breaking Bad like I was addicted to meth, I opted to catch John Dimaggio’s documentary I Know That Voice. A fantastic little flick dedicated in celebration of a continually (mostly) unsung hero of the animated world: the voice performer. With interviews from some – if not most – of the current tribe of working actors and actresses who lend their larynx to the cartoons of the day, I simply must recommend watching it yourself soon if you haven’t already.
But that recommendation is not my singular premise of the week, kiddos. For you see, it was »
