Microsoft may not be willing to embrace Seth MacFarlane this week, but FOX wants the animated mastermind to know that he’s still loved.
The network has ordered up a sixth season of “American Dad,” which joins “Family Guy” and “The Cleveland Show” on FOX and MacFarlane’s docket for the 2009-10 season.
An Emmy nominee for Outstanding Animated Program, “American Dad” featured MacFarlane’s voice as CIA agent and all-around family guy Stan Smith. The series will air its 100th episode sometime in the spring.
Thanks in no small part to its time period, nestled behind “Family Guy,” “American Dad” ranks among TV’s Top 10 programs with teens, viewers 18-34 and 12-34, male teens and male viewers 18-34 and 18-49.
