The counting of seasons of animated series is always tricky, but Deadline reports that Family Guy (technically currently airing its 10th season) has been renewed for a 11th season. But we already had it renewed for next season, so this renewal takes it beyond the 2012-13 season. Fox has also renewed American Dad for an eighth season. "Dad" is currently airing it sixth season. Look for a press release shortly.

The Cleveland Show -- currently about to finish its third season and already renewed for a fourth  -- has not yet been picked up for a fifth season, with Fox waiting to exercise that option.

    Is today the day for every network to renew and cancel? lol

  • Air Time

    @ Lane, LOL!

    Today and tomorrow are bloodbath days for shows. We’ll know about 85% of the landscape of shows before tomorrow night.

    “RICKY SPANISH!!!!!!!!!!”

    Will FOX ever end its unfunny cartoons?

  • Rob R

    I still miss “King of the Hill”

  • Steven Leitner

    @John A

    No, they make the FOX network what it is. They may not be funny to you, but they are funny to most people, so deal with it!

    Delighted to have confirmation for American Dad. I’d heard rumours of it ending.

    The Cleveland Show can’t leave TV land quicker as far as I’m concerned.

    Thank you FOX for renewing American Dad. It is by far the best comedy on FOX. Family Guy is way past its prime, but the ratings say otherwise.

    @SoundableObject re:CA I couldn’t agree more & I feel the same way about ND

    I am happy for American Dad haven’t been that impressed with Family Guy lately, and hell if they cancel Cleveland Show they can just move him back to Family Guy ;)

    Though I just watch them both on Adult swim instead of Sunday Nights. Hahahaha

    The only one of these horrible cartoons that are even watchable is The Cleveland Show. Family Guy and American Dad need to die. Painfully.

    How bad is Family Guy gonna get, they’re already completely out of ideas.

  • J.A.

    The clever, realistic, subtle humor of King of the Hill is nowhere to be found amidst Seth McFarlane’s brainless comedies. The only thing that comes close at all is Bob’s Burgers, which sometimes utilizes the brilliant dry humor that made KOTH so great. Besides Bob’s Burgers, there’s no longer quality TV on FOX Sundays.

    how can american dad be renewed for an 8th season when the FOX website lists it as already being on it’s 8th season

  • MJDB

    Great News!!! Love Family Guy, not a fan of American Dad.

  • MoHasanie

    Yay! Most episodes are really funny, and I don’t think they’ve run out of ideas yet!

    Cleveland Show is my favorite of the three.
