American Dad! returns on April 19 at 10pm ET/PT. “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. Hayley’s brother is the geeky-yet-confident Steve (Scott Grimes), a 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.” via Warner Media press release.
For TruTV, Double Cross with Blake Griffin, Set to premiere March 19 back to back at 5:30pm & 6pm ET/PT the four-episode limited series comes back on the next day March 20 with the same back to back formula at 5:30pm & 6pm ET/PT. “Double Cross with Blake Griffin serves up an incredibly devious twist as it offers a service to those who are all too often the victims of a prank.
