American Dad! Down One Creator
“American Dad!” will be entering its 11th season when it moves to the cable network channel TBS late next year but they have already lost one of the three co-creators of the show when Mike Barker stepped out in his role as showrunner with co-creator Matt Weitzman [the pair, along with Seth MacFarlane, created the show] after beginning work on only four episodes of Season 11. Barker and Weitzman had shared showrunning responsibilities and Weitzman will now solely handle those duties for the time being.
The fourth episode of Season Nine –“Piece of Cake” – is scheduled to air on November 10, 2013.
