Seth MacFarlane’s American Dad! Saved, Will Move to TBS Next Season

Over? Nothing is over until basic cable says it's over.

Cable to the rescue! Deadline has reported that American Dad! will move to TBS in 2014. While the 10th season of the animated sitcom, which starts airing on Fox September 29th, was expected to be its last, TBS has offered the show a stay of execution, ordering a 15-episode 11th season for the following year. Though it's often ignored by those who love Seth MacFarlane and dismissed by those who dislike him, this is a great relief to those of us who consider AD an underappreciated, surreally brilliant show in its own right.

Seth MacFarlane Donates Carl Sagan’s Personal Papers To The Library Of Congress

It Belongs in a Museum!

While the hit animated series Family Guy has featured Carl Sagan jokes before, it wasn't entirely clear how big of a fan creator Seth MacFarlane is of the influential astrophysicist until he threw up an undisclosed (but, let's be honest, probably huge) sum of money to buy and donate Sagan's personal papers to the Library of Congress.

Fox has given the greenlight for a reboot of Carl Sagan's iconic TV series Cosmos, to be hosted by famous and well-respected astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. The show will be produced by none other than Seth MacFarlane. Yes, Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy will be the mind behind a 13-part docu-series to air in primetime as a successor to Sagan's original Emmy and Peabody Award winning series.
