Recap / American Dad!

Go To

The following is a list of episode summaries for the Seth MacFarlane series, American Dad!, his second animated Dom Com centered on a conservative CIA agent named Stan Smith and his family: his hot, yet unstable wife, Francine; his geeky, girl-chasing son, Steve; his socially-liberal community college-dropout daughter, Hayley (and later, her stoner husband, Jeff Fischer); his house guest, a fey, hedonistic alien named Roger whom he rescued from Area 51, and Klaus, his lecherous, often ignored pet goldfish who used to be an East German skier. The series started out on the FOX Network from 2005 to 2014. Since October 2014, the show now has new episodes (on Monday nights) and reruns on TBS while additional reruns (and encores of the TBS episodes) can be seen on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim line-up.


Note: For television broadcast, season one was split into two parts: part one goes from the pilot episode to "Deacon Stan, Jesus Man" while part two goes from "Bullocks to Stan" to "Tears of a Clooney". However, the DVD version (which puts episodes in volumes, not seasons) has both parts of season one as one season. There is also a point of contention on whether or not the final three episodes for FOX (from "Roger Passes the Bar" to "Blagsnarst: A Love Story") are considered a separate mini-season or the first part of a new season. On TV and most online sources, it's a separate mini-season. For Netflix, Hulu, and various digital download and streaming services, the FOX finale mini-season and the first season that aired on TBS are all one season.

For ease of reference, the production season will be in parentheses next to the broadcast season.
