“I think we figured out who we were and it happened fairly early on,” Weitzman says. “We had to separate ourselves from ‘Family Guy.’ In the very beginning we had a few more cutaways and flashbacks and soon figured out that wasn’t going to work, otherwise we’d be a carbon copy. So then we were focusing on stories and characters and realized that was going to be our bread and butter.”

TBS Orders Another Season of ‘American Dad’

TBS has ordered another season of “American Dad,” the cheeky toon that relocated to the cabler last month from Fox.

The Seth MacFarlane comedy has been a solid performer for TBS and in its airings on Adult Swim since premiering in October. The 20th Century Fox TV series revolves around a conservative CIA agent and his nutty family life in Langley, Va. MacFarlane created the show with Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman. Brian Boyle is showrunner.
