American Dad, the FOX series created by Seth MacFarlane which has been recently honored with an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Animated Program, will continue to follow the twisted adventures of CIA agent Stan Smith in Langley Falls now that FOX has picked up the show for its sixth season.
Currently ranking in the top 10 program of the season among teens and adults 18-34 with an average of 7.1 million viewers each week, American Dad also follows Stan Smith’s odd family consisting of his unfaltering loyal wife Francine, rebellious 18-year-old daughter Hayley, and geeky yet cocky 14-year-old son Steve. Rounding up the Smith household is Roger, the selfish and sarcastic space alien who lives in the attic, and Klaus, a perverted attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German man.
This renewal is certainly good news for Seth MacFarlane considering FOX just ordered nine additional episodes of The Cleveland Show just last month, bringing the second season of the series to a full 22-episode order. This means all of MacFarlane’s three shows, including Family Guy, are now good to go through the 2010-2011 seasons.
Earlier this evening, MacFarlane performed with Alex Borstein in a half-hour FOX comedy called Family Guy Presents Seth and Alex’s Almost Live Comedy Show which featured various parodies from The Wizard of Oz, The Sound of Music and a gag involving Marlee Matlin’s speaking voice. The joke, however, was well received and considered less than scandalous since Matlin even came onstage to rip into the hosts.
