American Dad is the FOX animated series created by Seth MacFarlane that isn't Family Guy. However, both feature talking animals, awkward teenage sons, and both prmeiered after the Super Bowl. Stan Smith is a gung-ho arch-conservative FBI agent with a stay-at0home wife and rebelliously liberal teenage daughter. Much of the comedy comes from other characters mocking the ultra-right wing beliefs of Stan.

The show anchors FOX's Sunday night animation block and is paired with MacFarlane's vastly better Family Guy. American Dad begins its third season on September 30, one week after the three other animated series premiere to make room for Family Guy's one-hour, Star Wars parody premiere.
