While I was on break tonight I managed to catch 15 minutes of Sunday's main event.
"American Dad" may as well be "Family Guy" in an activist sheep's clothing. Much like its predecessor, the jokes were lame, obvious but somehow, against the laws of both time and space, hilarious just the same.

8:30 PM is probably too early for this sort of thing. Gags centered around a Olympic German skier trapped in the body of a goldfish make more sense on after hours cable.
After Fox buckles to pressure from conservative critics, moves its timeslot around and cancels it by May, here's hoping "American Dad" hits Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. After all, anything's better than that "Tom Goes to the Mayor" thing.
