‘American Dad!’ Moves To TBS in 2014

AMERICAN DAD The Scarlett Getter Season 7 Episode 6 (2)

American Dad! will be making the move from its home on Fox to the TBS network in 2014. TBS’ Michael Wright, the head of the network’s programming, shared his confidence over acquiring the animation. “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,” Wright said. Adding, “We look forward to welcoming Seth MacFarlane and the rest of his team as they bring this iconic show to TBS.”

Twentieth Century Fox TV Chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden were equally happy over the deal after choosing not to pick-up the series. “American Dad! is a brilliantly inventive series, and TBS’s desire to platform new episodes demonstrates the enduring power of great and compelling content. Seth, Mike and Matt have created an incredibly rich world of unique characters, and we couldn’t be happier that they will be able to continue to tell their trademark brand of subversive, hilarious stories to their millions of fans.”

Encore episodes of ‘American Dad! will air on the Adult Swim channel, the sister network of TBS. The Seth MacFarlane series will bow in its 10th season on Fox this fall before making its debut on TBS in 2014.
