American Dad gets new showrunner

Family Guy vet Steve Callaghan is taking over Fox’s well-reviewed American Dad!, Deadline is reporting. This marks the first time in the show’s eight year history that such a change has been made in the series’ production. Until now, Dad was managed by series creators Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman, who will remain involved as executive producers. The change is supposedly part of Seth MacFarlene’s plan to “keep things fresh” with his three shows on Fox, although another reason could be that The Cleveland Show–the critically panned Family Guy spin-off that Callaghan was formally in charge of–is possibly getting cancelled by the network. This is also a sign that Dad is expected to run until at least its tenth season, since the show’s ninth season set to air next fall has already been completed.
