Since WesternAnimation/AmericanDad is more of a political-based cartoon, it's considered to be more acceptable for political beliefs to be found in SethMacFarlane's second FOX cartoon. Still, this show's found to find some faults for viewers somewhere.

* Tropers/{{Luna87}}: "The Magnificent Steven" was the point where the show started to suck for me. The main plot I could take or leave, but the subplot is what really pissed me off. So Hayley helps [[JerkSue Roger]] with something (I can't remember what), and, as a result, Roger begins complimenting her more, making Francine jealous. This leads to Hayley and Francine competing for Roger's attention, to the point that they actually get into a physical altercation. It turns out that Roger wanted them to fight so that he could film it and upload it to a website featuring mother/daughter cat fights. And the worst thing about it is that Roger, as usual, [[KarmaHoudini gets off scot-free]]; that sub-plot just ends with him telling the two women [[{{Jerkass}} "Oh, by the way, I'm the prettiest one in the house."]] I think [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Brian]] might have some competition for biggest JerkSue on a SethMacFarlane show (and even that, I hear, is starting to turn around).

* Tropers/MosquitoMan: In "The Unbrave One", while [[StrawmanHasAPoint a valid point]], the Character Tract (or AuthorTract) against the praise for the guy who landed the plane on the Hudson River was poorly done. I mean, it's not hard at all to think that this is just what SethMacFarlane (or whoever wrote the script) wishes he wants to say to that guy if they met. It's forced, too much of a tract, and doesn't really add anything to the episode. A lot of jokes don't add either, but at least they were jokes, not thinly veiled rants.

* Tropers/{{Anonymous}} In the latest episode "Dr Klaustus", there's a scene where Stan and Francine find out Steve is pretending that Greg and Terry are his actual parents to avoid embarrassment, and Francine's reaction is to resort to calling Steve, her own son: "A four eyed bastard", and to add insult to injury, says she knew she should've aborted him! Okay, time out, one of the reasons why I like ''American Dad'' is because it's closer to the first three seasons of ''Family Guy'', the characters despite being dysfunctional are lovable, and they have feelings, but I see the show suffering from minor flanderization; Roger has already turned into an extreme jerk (to an extent, I don't mind), but the family are picking on Klaus for no reason (especially in this episode), and Francine said something as bad as what Lois (of the new FG episodes) would've said; this is the same character who went to the lengths of breaking up her "four eyed bastard" son from his girlfriend, because she herself missed spending time with him and cared about him. Come on, please don't do this to ''American Dad'', one of the reasons why FG has suffered was due to flanderization, please don't do this to the one good SethMacFarlane show left! To add insult to injury, Francine in the same episode calls Stan out because he called her out on stealing, and calls him a "pre-eating douchebag"... [[CharacterDerailment stop derailing Francine, damn it!]]

* Tropers/CallingAlameda: "American Fung" feels like a massive in-joke that the audience isn't in on. The live action cold open is jarringly out-of-place, it's unfunny, and goes on way too long. And then Fung Wah ends up hijacking the episode itself. They seem to be making an attempt at a ParodySue, but it fails because the character isn't funny and the entire sequence goes absolutely nowhere. And then there's the main plot with Stan and Francine in the mental institution. It's creepy and unpleasant to watch, and the way they portray mentally handicapped people as inert zombies, and then use them basically as props for physical comedy shenanigans, is downright cringe-inducing.

* mysticfire: My DMOS would have to be "Great Space Roaster." I feel like I should explain the episode. It starts out innocently enough with Bullock out of the blue announcing [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseinContext that a CIA family will go to space to study Chia Pets for a year.]] At the same time, Roger announces his displeasure at the Smiths' plan to give him a bowling birthday party for his 1601st birthday (which in this troper's opinion is actually a rather fun way to spend a birthday). They ask him what he wants, and he says he wants a roast, "like all the greats." That's right, he means a roast as in where everyone gathers around to poke fun at the recipient. They ask him at least twice if he's okay with this, and he says it is what he wants. The family then proceeds to give him an admittedly funny roast, and Roger (who has been wearing sunglasses the whole time) reveals that he was crying, feels insulted, and leaves in a huff. Then, in a Roger way, he pretends to turn it all around because of their comments, with the Smiths being understandably suspicious of his true intentions. He then spends the remainder of the episode trying to kill the Smiths because his feelings were hurt, and the family actually feels bad for him. Again, he ASKED for this roast. After a couple of failed attempts to murder them, the Smiths become the family to be sent into space. Long story short, Roger follows them there, hunts them down, and then ''forces them to roast each other'' so they would "feel his pain" or something. Then the Smiths are laughing at each other and they're all "Roger was hurt because he feels like we don't love him" or something equally stupid. Conclusion: Roger is once again a despicable KarmaHoudini and we are forced to watch this drivel over Roger's reaction for, once again, ''something that he asked for.''

* /{{Collectionchange}}: "Minstrel Krampus", an episode with the glaringly wrong "aesop" (that they hammer into us repeatedly throughout) that abuse makes kids grow up well, when it has long since been found that it does the exact opposite. Also, the entire plot was absolutely pathetic and unfunny, from beggining to end, including the b-plot of Haley looking for a Christmas gift. Also, I felt that changing Santa from a vengeful antagonist to just a corrupt bastard was a waste, watching Santa return for vengeance for a couple Christmas episodes would've been more fun than this. I must admit I like the "Bad Boy Song" though...

* Tropers/{{Peridonyx}}: "Dope and Faith". Hoo, boy, where do I begin? From Stan becoming a MoralEventHorizon-crossing {{Yandere}} over such a petty reason -- his new friend's atheism -- to the CriticalResearchFailure of the cliche about suicide automatically equaling eternal damnation, no questions asked -- countless Christians actually do not believe in SuicideIsShameful. As a Christian myself, I actually wanted to [[VideoGame/FZero Falcon Punch]] my TV, and as a pragmatic viewer, this was where I just invoked ScrewThisImOuttaHere from this show.
