Our friends at TBS have shared another exclusive clip (and images!) with AWN to remind us just how funny their hugely popular animated comedy American Dad! is. Mark your calendar for this coming Monday, December 4 at 10:00 pm ET/PT for an all-new episode. If you miss the airing - remember episodes stream the next day on Hulu!
In Monday’s episode, “The Pink Sphinx Holds Her Hearts On the Turn,” Francine enters the strange and dangerous world of poker in order to learn how to hide her true feelings from Steve and Hayley.
As for the clip, think Royal Flush, but not really. Pray tell your tell? Check it out:
Created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman, the animated comedy tells the story of Stan Smith (MacFarlane), an ultra-patriotic CIA agent, and the misadventures of his unconventional family in Langley Falls, VA. Stan applies the same drastic measures used in his job at the CIA to his home life, where Stan’s blissfully unaware wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal), has an unfaltering loyalty that makes her blind to his unabashed arrogance. His left-wing activist daughter Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), however, doesn’t let him off so easily and knows just how to push her father’s buttons, unlike her dopey, well-intentioned husband Jeff (Jeff Fischer), who doesn’t know much of anything. Son Steve (Scott Grimes) is a geeky yet confident kid who spends his time playing video games and obsessing about the opposite sex. The Smith cabinet is rounded out by two rather unconventional members: Roger (MacFarlane), a sassy, sarcastic, and routinely inappropriate space alien, and Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker), an attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German Olympic skier.
The animated comedy from 20th Television Animation is executive produced by co-showrunner Brian Boyle along with MacFarlane and Weitzman. The episode was written by Brett Cawley and Robert Maitia and directed by Chris Bennett.
Adult Swim will re-air the first half of Season 18 every Wednesday at 11 pm ET/PT and re-air new episodes nine days after they air on TBS.
