Hey, remember that old show American Dad, the other Seth MacFarlane animated comedy on Fox? Well apparently that's still on the air, and next season it will be moving from Fox to TBS. MacFarlane and co-producers Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman are going to wrap up season 10—seriously, season 10—then take their talents from a network owned by a crazy British billionaire to one owned by a crazy American billionaire in 2014.
The hilarious thing in all this? Listening to the TBS execs gush about the show, you'd think they were talking about a serialized version of Annie Hall or something. Here's what Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TBS, TNT, and TCM had to say:
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. We look forward to welcoming Seth MacFarlane and the rest of his team as they bring this iconic show to TBS.
That's right. Iconic.
I think maybe Mr. Wright might be under the impression that they've just acquired Family Guy. But, shhh, nobody tell him. I want to see how long it takes him to figure out they picked up a show people only ever watched because it came on right after the show they actually like.
