NEW EPISODES FROM SEASON 17 OF “AMERICAN DAD!” RETURN TO TBS





NEW EPISODES FROM SEASON 17 OF CABLE’S TOP COMEDY, “AMERICAN DAD!” RETURN TO TBS ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 5


SAN DIEGO, CA – July 23, 2022 – At San Diego Comic Con, TBS announced the return of new episodes from season 17 of Cable’s #2 comedy, “American Dad!” on Monday, September 5 at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT.

“American Dad!” centers on super patriotic CIA agent Stan Smith (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and the misadventures of his unconventional family in Langley Falls, VA. Stan applies the same drastic measures used in his job at the CIA to his home life, where Stan’s blissfully unaware wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal), has an unfaltering loyalty that makes her blind to his unabashed arrogance. His left-wing activist daughter Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), however, doesn’t let him off so easily and knows just how to push her father’s buttons, unlike her dopey, well-intentioned husband Jeff (Jeff Fischer) who doesn’t know much of anything. Son Steve (Scott Grimes) is a geeky-yet-confident kid who spends his time playing video games and obsessing about the opposite sex. The Smith cabinet is rounded out by two rather unconventional members: Roger (MacFarlane), a sassy, sarcastic and routinely inappropriate space alien, and Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker), an attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German Olympic skier.

This season also features a special guest lineup including Terry Crews as Heinrich Brown, a ruthless insurance adjuster hellbent on bringing bad drivers to justice but trapped behind the façade of his macho exterior is a tender man with a song in his heart; Jared Harris as Merlin, a busy, always on-the-go, multi-hyphenate, wizard. Even though he’s the most powerful being in his realm, Merlin still relies on a team of employees to help juggle his numerous projects and appearances; Laurie Metcalf as Eilzabeth, a leading egg scientist and researcher at Groff Community College; Jason Isaacs as Jumpers, the leader of a manipulative gang of frogs – he’s as evil as he is charming, and he’ll stop at nothing to make sure he gets what he wants; and Patti Harrison as Ali, a really cool sophomore girl who pops ghost peppers like they’re nothing, and thinks love doesn’t exist. Steve can’t resist her.

The animated comedy from 20th Television Animation was created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman, and is executive produced by co-showrunner Brian Boyle along with MacFarlane and Weitzman.

VIDEO: Clips from Last Night’s Episode of TBS’s Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

Episode 7216 Description:
Full Frontal examines the country’s embarrassingly weak gun laws and calls out the Republicans who want us to believe that mass shootings are just a part of our everyday lives. Plus, a look at how trans youth are under attack this Pride season, an interview with Russian dissident and author, Masha Gessen, and Sam escapes America’s utter chaos to eat baguettes in Paris.

Samantha in Paris – Part 1 of 3
If Emily can make a whole new life for herself in Paris, why can’t Sam?

What’s Next For America’s Embarrassingly Weak Gun Laws?

No one wants to be a cynic about an issue as important as gun violence, but it’s hard to be optimistic when half of our elected officials won’t even admit there’s a gun problem.

Trans Youth Are Under Attack

Because nothing says “the party of protecting children” like state-mandated inspections of kids’ bodies.

Masha Gessen Talks Russia’s War on Ukraine

Sam turns to her favorite Russian dissident and author, Masha Gessen, to get their always sunny take on just how close we are to a nuclear holocaust.

Sam’s Take: California Bees Are…Fish

TBD if this will protect the increasingly rare late night host bee.

Episode 7214 Description:
Full Frontal tackles the latest horrific school shooting and explores how Congress could put an end to mass killings RIGHT NOW. Plus, we investigate the on-going shortage of nurses and how it’s quickly become a national crisis and showcase a cathartic performance by Peaches.

Congress Has the Power to Stop Mass Shootings
We’re pretty deep in denial if we don’t think guns and lax gun laws are making this problem infinitely worse.

If Nurses Are Fucked, We’re Fucked
Nurses are burnt out and retiring or quitting in droves. Their absence leaves a shortage that’s quickly becoming a national crisis. But thanks for clapping at 7pm every night!

Peaches Performs “Fuck the Pain Away”
Full Frontal’s theme song goddess is back and in-studio to perform her classic, “Fuck the Pain Away.”
