American Dad! is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman for the "Animation Domination" lineup on Fox. American Dad! is the first television series to have its inception on Animation Domination. The series premiere aired on February 6, 2005, following Super Bowl XXXIX, three months before the rest of the first seasonaired as part of the Animation Domination block, commencing on May 1, 2005. Creative direction of American Dad! has largely been guided by Barker (until concluding production of season 10) and Weitzman as opposed to MacFarlane. This is believed to have resulted in a series that is distinguishable from its counterparts. Unlike its sister shows, Family Guy and The Cleveland Show, American Dad! is not filled with intentional humor, such as through the use of repeated cutaway gags and other blatant joke-telling deliveries; rather its humor is subtler, focusing on the nuttiness and oddities of its characters and their circumstances. As opposed to joke references to every pop cultural target possible—a staple of MacFarlane's Family Guy material—Barker and Weitzman have structured American Dad! so as to center on a bizarre concept in combination with an everyday-life human story that grounds it. While the core issues and resolutions are relatable in most episodes, the execution tends to enter into wild and crazy extremes, thus an observational comedy or farce. As absurd as the show gets, there is typically a family story with cozy elements behind it. American Dad! has been nominated for numerous awards, most prominently two Primetime Emmy Awards and two Annie Awards. In June 2013, it was awarded as top television series by theAmerican Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. Since its debut, American Dad! has broadcast 187 episodes. The total number of seasons and organization of episodes within these seasons are in dispute because of a discrepancy in how official sources report this information. One model suggests the first season of American Dad! comprises the first 7 episodes, while another model suggests the first season comprises 23 episodes
