American Dad! 2005-presentEdit
The series focuses on the eccentric upper middle class Smith family in Northern Virginia and their three housemates: Father, husband, CIA Agent, Republican, and breadwinner Stan Smith; his wife and homemaker/housewife, Francine Smith; their college-aged daughter, Hayley Smith; and their high-school-aged son, Steve Smith. Outside of the Smith family, there are three additional main characters, including Hayley's boyfriend turned husband, Jeff Fischer; the family's man-in-a-goldfish-body pet, Klaus; and Roger, the alien, who is "full of masquerades, brazenness, and shocking antics".
The Cleveland Show 2009-2013Edit
Plot and developementEdit
The Cleveland Show (sometimes abbreviated to Cleveland Show) is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Richard Appel, and Mike Henry for the Fox Broadcasting Company as a spin-off of Family Guy. The series centers on the Browns and Tubbs, two dysfunctional families consisting of parents Cleveland Brown and Donna Tubbs and their children Cleveland Brown, Jr., Roberta Tubbs, and Rallo Tubbs. Similar to Family Guy, it exhibits much of its humor in the form of cutaway gags that often lampoon American culture.
The series was conceived by MacFarlane in 2007 after developing the two animated series Family Guy and American Dad! for the Fox Network. MacFarlane centered the show on Family Guy character Cleveland Brown, his new wife Donna Tubbs, his step-children Rallo and Roberta Tubbs, and his son Cleveland Jr., who, in the show, is depicted as an obese, soft-spoken teen, as opposed to his depiction as a younger, hyperactive child with average body weight on his earlier appearances on Family Guy.
The series aired from September 27, 2009, to May 19, 2013, for a total of four seasons and 88 episodes. The Cleveland Show was nominated for one Annie Award, one Primetime Emmy Award, and two Teen Choice Awards, but received mixed reviews from media critics. The Cleveland Show holds a TV-14 rating. The series was canceled after its fourth season. Cleveland has since returned with his family to Family Guy in the twelfth season episode "He's Bla-ack!".
Bordertown 2016 onwardsEdit
Bordertown is a 2016 American adult animated sitcom created by Family Guy writer Mark Hentemann and executive-produced by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. A 13-episode first season premiered in January 2016 on Fox. Bordertown will take the place of MacFarlane's other animated series American Dad! (which moved to TBS) on Fox's "Sunday Funday" line-up.
Bordertown takes place in the fictitious state of Mexifornia, following two families who live in a Southwest desert town on the United States–Mexico border. The two main characters are Bud Buckwald and Ernesto Gonzalez. Bud is a border agent living with his wife, Janice Buckwald, and their three children, Becky, Sanford, and Gert. Living next door to him is Ernesto Gonzalez, an ambitious immigrant and family man, who has been in the country less than 10 years and is happy to be with his family in the United States.
