American Dad takes to the sky this week in hopes of turning you into a frequent crier. (You know, from laughing really hard.) In the episode, which airs Sunday at 9:30 p.m. on Fox, Stan and Francine learn all about the world of aviation, while trying to prevent Mark Cuban (played by Mark Cuban) from blowing the sun to smithereens.
They are recruited by a Charlie’s Angels-esque quartet of sexy flight attendants, who are voiced by some recognizable names: Olivia Wilde as Denise (the brunette!); Becki Newton as Margie (the blonde!), Gillian Jacobs as Christy (the dirty blonde!), and Megalyn Echikunwoke as Angie (the redhead!). This alluring cabin crew calls themselves “four high-flying gals who like to have fun” — so read into that what you may. And check out some of their dirty talk in the clip below.
The episode also includes vocal contributions from Kyle Chandler and returning guest Ellie Kemper. READ FULL STORY

And he just added another role to his resume: The star of Workaholics/host of Adam Devine’s House Party/occasional actor on Modern Family/voice of Pizza Steve on Cartoon Network’s Uncle Grandpa is lending his pipes to a character on American Dad, EW has learned.
Devine will play an announcer at a Langley Falls Karate Tournament, in which Steve and Snot square off against each other. He will also voice another character in the episode, which will be one of the first on TBS this fall, when the show moves to the cable network from Fox. READ FULL STORY

Mr. Burns may have blocked the sun on The Simpsons, but Mark Cuban is taking it one step further on American Dad: He’s planning to blow the thing up.

FOX has decided to pull new episodes of Family Guy and American Dad, which were scheduled to air Sunday, in light of yesterday’s tragic shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.
It is understood that the network decided not to air the episodes, titled “Jesus, Mary and Joseph!” and “Minstrel Krampus,” to avoid running potentially sensitive content.
Yesterday, Syfy made a similar move when it pulled a new episode of Haven that featured fictitious high school violence.
The episodes of Family Guy and American Dad will be replaced by repeats of “Grumpy Old Man” and “Wheels & The Legman and The Case of Grandpa’s Key,” respectively, according to The Futon Critic.
Ted may be getting the bear’s share of attention right now for Seth MacFarlane, but his animated Fox shows will be back in the spotlight next week at Comic-Con.
