‘American Dad’ Season 11: FOX Series Moves to TBS in 2014
Fans of Seth MacFarlane‘s FOX Animation Domination block have likely come to understand by now that ‘Family Guy‘ spinoff ‘The Cleveland Show‘ has most likely run its course, but it seems’American Dad‘ is in for a shakeup as well. The FOX series will officially move to TBS in 2014 beginning with the 11th season, keeping to its current network for the upcoming fall run.
“‘American Dad’ is a great fit for TBS, a favorite of comedy fans who like smart, irreverent humor with ample doses of biting wit and skewering satire,” said Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TBS. “We look forward to welcoming Seth MacFarlane and the rest of his team as they bring this iconic show to TBS.”
TBS’ 2014 run will consist of 15 all-new ’American Dad’ episodes, with the potential to be renewed thereafter, much as TBS saved ABC’s ‘Cougar Town‘ from cancellation, and went on to renew it beyond. In ‘American Dad”s case, sister network Adult Swim will air encores of each episode after initial airings on TBS. Both networks had already run repeat airings of both ‘Family Guy’ and ‘American Dad.’
We’ll admit our surprise over the move, but we’ll surely hear more from the ‘American Dad’ panel at Comic-Con 2013. What say you? Are you disappointed to hear the irreverent series will stop airing on FOX in 2014?
