More King of the Hill promo sightings; residents wonder how a show that was never, ever funny remained on the air for so many years

Picking up from BoweryBoogie and Curbed last week.

Had a sighting at Sixth Street and Avenue A:

And Houston and Avenue B:

Full disclosure: Mrs. Grieve and I are the "residents" the headline refers to. Feel free to defend the show in the comments.

i agree with you. beavis and butthead, which it spun off of, was a much better show.

also, i thought daria was a much better spinoff than King of the Hill.

Thank you!

In any event, so many ads for KOH around the neighborhood...I don't get it.

Cartoons should have cartoon action, ie action that is not available in the real world. These cartoon characters have no super powers, don't die and then come back the next week, no interesting artwork etc. They failed to create a cartoon world that pays off on its being a cartoon instead of real people.

I'm a big fan of the show, but these ads are, of course, grotesque.

But the most baffling aspect is that King of the Hill was officially canceled last month; why are they blowing all this money on a show they recently canceled, a show that they never heavily advertised before?
