American Dad (Tv Series) 2005

American Dad! is a satirical American animated series owned by Underdog Productions and Fuzzy Door Productions and produced in association with 20th Century Fox Television.

It was created by Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy, as well as two former Family Guy writers, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman. The basic character structure is similar in both shows: a family consisting of a husband, wife, daughter, son and two “off” characters. However, American Dad differs from Family Guy by using almost no Cutaway Gags. The pilot episode aired in the United States on Fox on February 6, 2005, thirty minutes after the end of Super Bowl XXXIX; the regular series began May 1, 2005, after the season premiere of Family Guy. American Dad! follows the events of CIA agent Stan Smith and his family.
Ratings
While the show has succeeded in being renewed for a fifth season, it has not matched Family Guy or The Simpsons in ratings success. On a typical Sunday, American Dad! has slightly more than half the viewers and share of the The Simpsons and Family Guy episodes that follow it on Fox. Its ratings are typically similar to or slightly lower than the King of the Hill episode that precedes it. For the week ending on April 6, 2008, it was Fox’s least viewed primetime program.
Crossovers with Family Guy
Certain characters and locations have been featured in select episodes of Family Guy, another animated comedy created and produced by Seth MacFarlane.
* Roger makes a last-minute cameo in the episode “Meet the Quagmires”, asking the Griffins “Who ate all the Pecan Sandies?”. His line is a reference to a line he said early in the American Dad! pilot episode, asking Francine if she bought Pecan Sandies while she was out shopping.
* Roger appears in the hour-long Star Wars parody “Blue Harvest” in the cantina scene, socializing and sipping red wine.
* Stan Smith and Avery Bullock, as well as the CIA Headquarters, appear in the episode “Lois Kills Stewie”. When they meet, Stewie calls Stan “Joe”, then explains that he looks like someone he knows.
In the season 2 episode, An Apocalypse to Remember, Stan talks about a “mutant – half man, half divine,” whom the CIA kept “until he ascended to heaven after getting into the garbage and eating some chocolate” the exact same way that Brian dies in the Family Guy movie.
