American Dad: FOX Renews Animated Sitcom for Year Six

American DadWhile many in the US are still struggling to hold onto their jobs, a certain American Dad has just been told he’ll have his for another year.

Created by Seth MacFarlane, American Dad follows an ultra-patriotic CIA agent (MacFarlane) and his less-than-typical family. The show also stars the voices of Wendy Schaal, Scott Grimes, Rachael MacFarlane, Dee Bradley Baker, and Mike Barker.

While the show is still early in its run of fifth season episodes, FOX has ordered a sixth round.

The new season order doesn’t come as a surprise of course. American Dad is a staple of the network’s Sunday night “animation domination” block and consistently rates as one of FOX’s highest rated shows in the key demographics, particularly males.

Season six of American Dad is expected to kick off during the 2010-11 season.

What do you think? Are you glad that the show is sticking around or is it over-rated?

    I love American Dad. I look forward to it the most especially after an episode of Family Guy fails miserably at making me laugh. My boyfriend wont laugh at any of the other shows(all of them I love), but he will laugh at American Dad from time to time. He’s really into politics and he finds humor in this show that I miss sometimes. (Love the Ollie’s Gold episode!)

  2. Cleveland show sucks, American dad sucks,Family guy rules... says

    I get bored with the,roger does something crazy, gets beat up and does the same thing next week plot he’s got going. Not to mention that whiny high pitched gay voice he does. It was funny for a while but it can’t ever have the social commentary that makes family guy funny week after week. But it will be around untill they can find something to fill it’s spot…soon I hope.

    This show never lets me down especially when Family guy has a bad show. The Simspons have lost what made them good in the first place so the Seth M is really has really saved Fox Sunday with Family Guy and American Dad!

    This is the only funny cartoon on the air as far as I’m concerned. Family Guy used to be good but now its been running stale for about 3 years or so… and don’t get me started on how atrocious and unfunny Cleveland Show is.

    This show just keeps getting beter and better. I never miss it! Family Guy is getting old. American Dad is far better. I hope its on for at least 5 more seasons!
    Roger the Alien is a very clever character as is Stan. Great stuff! I wish they would release some toys or something!

    I prefer this show to ‘ The Cleverland Show ‘ not really getting into it. Theres been a few funny bits in it but its not that good. Glad to see the return of Stan The Man

    Rhino, you Crazy. American Dad is the Greatest Cartoon on at the moment. I agree with what your saying about Matt G though

    American dad needs to go. Its not fair that Mediocre Seth Macfarlane has 3 shows and Genius Matt Groening only has one. The whole Quahog world and Cleveland Show is so likable, but American Dad has never been very likable in my opinion. I always felt like it was the worst cartoon on that time slot. I think they should cancel American Dad, and put Cleveland in its spot. Then bring back Futurama and put that in the Cleveland Time slot.

      If you’re such a genious, why not create your OWN show and pitch it to Fox.
