‘American Dad’ gets sixth season

Order continues MacFarlane's animation domination

Fox has given a sixth-season order to “American Dad,” keeping the animated skein on the air through at least the 2010-11 TV season.

Pickup also ensures that Seth MacFarlane’s Sunday night “animation domination” continues next year on Fox; network also recently ordered a full second season of “The Cleveland Show.” MacFarlane’s mother ship, “Family Guy,” is also on the network pretty much in perpetuity.

“Dad,” from 20th Century Fox TV, rates among the season’s top 10 shows with men 18-49 and adults 18-34. Show was recently nominated for outstanding animated program.

MacFarlane co-created “Dad” with Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman. MacFarlane, Barker, Weitzman, Rick Wiener and Kenny Schwartz are the exec producers.
