Voiced by Jonah Hill, the animated series has punched a ragged, child-sized hole in Fox’s Sunday night “Animation Domination” roster. Since bowing Oct. 30 to an underwhelming 4.77 million viewers and a 2.4 rating in the 18-49 demo, Allen Gregory has plummeted to an anemic 3.18 million viewers and a 1.5 rating. On Nov. 27, Allen Gregory lost 43 percent of the lead-in audience furnished by The Simpsons . Through five episodes, Allen Gregory is averaging 4.09 million viewers and a 2.0 rating in the money demo. In the same time slot a year ago, The Cleveland Show averaged 6.46 million viewers and a 3.0 rating in its first five weeks. Allen Gregory’s failure to connect with viewers appears to be taking a bite out of Family Guy’s audience at 9 p.m.––at this time last season, Seth MacFarlane’s signature series was drawing 8.04 million viewers and a 3.9 rating; through Nov. 20, Family Guy is averaging 6.41 million viewers and a 3.4 rating. Beginning Jan. 15, new series
