FOX Elects American Dad for 4th Season

FOX has elected to pick up AMERICAN DAD for a 4th season. The show (Sundays, 9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) ranks #1 in its time period among adults 18-34, teens and all male demos.

The series continues to follow Republican poster boy and card-carrying NRA member Stan Smith (Seth MacFarlane) and his odd family in Langley Falls, Virginia. With a heart of gold and good looks, Stan's wife Francine (Wendy Schaal) carefully hides her blonde-party-girl personality for the sake of the conservative man she loves. Stan is constantly butting heads with his left-wing, liberal, 18-year-old daughter Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), who has no qualms about signing pro-choice petitions, attending anti-war protests and speaking out against the Bush regime on the quad of her community college. Hayley's 13-year-old brother is the geeky yet subtly debonair Steve (Scott Grimes), a kid who seems to be on the verge of puberty but can't quite make sense of the opposite sex, much less his embarrassing family. The Smith household is rounded out by two rather unconventional members. There's the sarcastic space alien refugee, Roger (MacFarlane), who lives in the attic and likes his martinis, and his women, dirty; and Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker), a lascivious goldfish with the brain of a German guy and a lust Francine.

AMERICAN DAD is a 20th Century Fox Television production. Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman serve as co-creators and exec producers.
