American Dad is no Family Guy

Tuesday, February 08, 2005

Matthew Gilbert of the Boston Globe agrees with me that there's just nothing funny about a CIA dad who is so paranoid that he shoots the toaster.

American Dad, the new Family Guy spin-off from the same creator, Seth McFarlane, debuted Sunday night after the Super Bowl amid moderate expectations. Laughs came few and far between suggesting that this show is dead in the water. New Family Guy episodes return this May on FOX, and they can't come soon enough.
