As many comedy fans’ dreams of ABC’s canceled series Happy Endings finding a home at TBS were dashed in the last few weeks, the latter network as dipped into Fox’s offerings and came up with American Dad. After Seth MacFarlane’s animated series ends its tenth season on Fox this year, it’ll shuffle on over to TBS for a 15-episode season 11. Sister network Adult Swim will broadcast recently aired episodes as well.
“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,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movie, in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming Seth MacFarlane and the rest of his team as they bring this iconic show to TBS.”
