'American Dad' makes home at Fox


"American Dad!" is staying in the Fox animated family for another year. The network has picked up the series for a fourth season with a 22-episode order. Since its 2005 launch, the show has become an integral part of Fox's Sunday animated block alongside stalwarts "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy." "Dad" was created by "Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman. The three are executive producing the animated series with David Zuckerman, Rick Wiener and Kenny Schwartz.
