For all of you fans of American Dad! who feared that the hit animated series being moved from Fox’s Animation Domination lineup after its 10th season to Monday nights on TBS meant its end was near, fear not!
Not only is the Seth MacFarlane show doing well on TBS, but it’s been averaging 3.1 million gross viewers for premiere episodes so far this season. Because of this, TBS has already decided to keep the party going with an official order of 22 episodes that will make up a new season sometime after the current season comes and goes.
It was first announced back in July of 2013 that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane‘s other hit animated series, American Dad!, would be moving from Fox’s Sunday Animation Domination lineup to TBS sometime in 2014.
We just wanted to send out a quick reminder to fans of the show that the move officially happens this very day. A new season of American Dad! kicks off tonight at 9 p.m. ET on TBS with the episode “Blonde Ambition,” and continue on Monday nights moving forward.
This comes from back in April, so many of you may have already seen or heard about it. But for those who hadn’t heard of it or missed it such as myself, it’s a pretty cool little tip of the hat to Joss Whedon‘s prematurely canceled Firefly, which was ended by Fox eleven years ago now. (*sniff*) I’m getting a bit verklempt.
Anyway! As a master of the procrastinative arts, the TV shows on my DVR collect and build up faster than the genetically engineered offspring of Sonic the Hedgehog and The Flash goes potty. Adorable thing, really. And even poops little golden rings for some odd reason, so yeah…I suppose everyone is a winner.
One of the shows I attempted to catch up on a bit recently was Seth MacFarlane‘s very own Fox animated comedy American Dad! And in watching a late April episode titled “The Full Cognitive Redaction of Avery Bullock by the Coward Stan Smith” I noticed something that warmed my geek heart. A little model of the crew’s ship in Firefly, named Serenity, floating behind Roger the alien’s head.
In an…interesting…bit of casting news, it’s being reported that fakey celebrity and reality TV star Kim Kardashian will be voicing an alien in an upcoming episode of American Dad!, the animated series created by Seth MacFarlane.
In the episode, Kardashian’s alien character will crash land in the town of Langley Falls, where she of course will meet and fall in love with Roger Smith (voiced by MacFarlane), the show’s crude and eccentric alcoholic alien.
In a bit of unexpected news, it’s being reported that American Dad!, the hit animated comedy from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, will be moving from its current home in Fox’s Animation Domination lineup to TBS starting in 2014.
The show, which follows an ultra-conservative American man, his family, and the alien life form they harbor, will begin its 10th season on Fox beginning this September. After that it will make the jump to TBS where it will begin its 11th season next year.
