TV show description:
Stan Smith (Seth MacFarlane) is a die-hard Republican and a card-carrying member of the NRA member. A CIA agent, he lives with his unique family in Langley Falls, VA.
Francine (Wendy Schaal) is Stan’s not-so-bright wife who is so loyal to her arrogant husband that she turns a blind eye to his faults. Stan constantly butts heads with his liberal 18-year-old daughter, Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), who knows just how to push her father’s buttons. Stan’s 14-year-old brother is Steve (Scott Grimes), a geeky yet cocky a kid who can’t quite make it through puberty and find success with girls.
Also living with them are two less-conventional members of the family. Living in the attic is Roger (Seth MacFarlane), a selfish and sarcastic space alien who lives like it’s always happy hour. He came to live with the Smiths after saving Stan’s life in Area 51.
Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker) is an attention-starved goldfish with the brain of an East German Olympic ski-jumper. His brain was switched by the CIA during the 1986 Olympics to prevent him from winning the gold medal. Klaus is always willing to vocalize his opinions whether or not anyone is listening.
