* PublicExposure: Hayley does this, making a big deal on how it's totally not scandalous. Then she has a NakedFreakOut when she sees that Roger is in the class. And then Roger sells his painting to Steve without telling him it's of his sister.

* SadistShow: While not quite as prominent an example as Seth's [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy other]] [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow shows]], there's some frequent BlackComedy and the majority of the cast [[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist are less than]] [[ComedicSociopath morally sound]] to say the least.

** An in-universe example is shown in "Morning Mimosa" with the titular ShowWithinAShow. The entire show is dedicated to humiliating its guests on live TV, with the hosts even going so far as to get their entire audience drunk on mimosas and provoke them into physically attacking said guests. Not even kids like Steve are safe.

'''Roger''': Remember when Rudy from TheCosbyShow got old and stopped being cute? I brought them Raven-Symone! Saw her on a Philadephia playground and knew she was a star, snatched her right up! Six months later, her parents saw her on TV and realized she was still alive... did some time for that. So, you ask, am I sure about this? I dunno.

** Much to the bafflement of an American audience, one episode sees Director Bollock of the CIA, in his downtime in between interviews, [[Music/GeorgeFormby pick up a ukelele and perform "When I'm Cleaning Windows]]". Creator/PatrickStewart even performs this in his native broad Yorkshire accent. Which must really bemuse Americans.

* StoppedReadingTooSoon: A guy stopped reading ''{{Carrie}}'', literally in the middle of a sentence. Thus, he dropped pigs from the ceiling onto Stan at the prom instead of pigs' blood.

* SpiritualSuccessor: After people got over the "It's a ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' [[FollowTheLeader knockoff]]" phase, it's generally been agreed upon by fans to be the spiritual successor to the older episodes of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' in terms of writing quality, character development, and storyline depth (in the days before it started pandering to the LowestCommonDenominator). According to SethMacFarlane, ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is actually supposed to be the spiritual successor to ''AllInTheFamily'' (even though ''All In The Family'' already has one in the form of the short-lived animated sitcom ''WaitTillYourFatherGetsHome'', though, these days, ''Wait Till Your Father Gets Home'' is seen as either a dry-run version of ''The Simpsons'' or a dry-run version of ''Family Guy'', sans the flashback and cutaway humor, with some character dynamics of ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' in its early days).

* ScrewTheElectricBill: Lampshaded in some of the audio commentaries of the [=DVD=]s, where members of the production staff complain about a table lamp that seems to be left on permanently during the day. Remember, this is an ''animated show'' we're talking about.
