American Dad on Fox
For decades, the 7 p.m.
(Eastern) timeslot on Sunday night was regarded as sacrosanct. Over many years,
networks honored their pledge to keep the hour before the Family
Hour clean by airing wholesome, family-friendly content like The Wonderful
World of Disney.
How times have changed.
Fox now sees fit to air reruns
of Seth MacFarlane’s vile animated series American Dad in that once
child-safe timeslot. Move over Mickey Mouse -- Fox is offering up a different
sort of animated “furry” creature for your children to watch. For airing an
array of sexual fetishes and perversions at 7 p.m. ET (only 6 p.m.
Central/Mountain), the March 22nd rerun of American Dad has
been named Worst TV Show of the Week.
In this episode, hapless CIA
agent Stan Smith hopes to curry favor with his boss Bullock. Stan jumps at the
chance to accompany Bullock on a “dangerous mission” -- which turns out to be
serving as Bullock’s “wingman” as he cruises for girls at local clubs. “Look
out for the rarest of birds,” Bullock instructs, “the Plump Asian Skank.” When
Stan points out that everyone at the club is “tall and gorgeous,” Bullock
replies, “I guess I’ll just have to settle for some tight white meat.” Stan
follows Bullock from place to place, including a Goth club, a barn full of
dancers and a teenager’s
basement, where they play spin-the-bottle with some youngsters. Stan, in fact,
kisses the adolescent girl next to him while Bullock complains that he has been
lonely since his wife’s kidnapping by an Islamist terrorist group. Eventually,
Stan and Bullock end up at a “Furries” convention. (The term “furries” can
refer to a particular sexual obsession with anthropomorphic animals like those
found in children’s cartoons. “Fur-verts,” as they are called, engage in sexual
activity while dressed as animals). At the convention, a banner states,
“Welcome Furries.” A stranger dressed as a squirrel shakes his tail at Bullock,
who is dressed as a teddy bear. Bullock waves off the squirrel, who starts to
walk away -- when a man dressed as a car runs into the squirrel. The fur-vert
flounces onto the ground and lies face down while the car mounts him and rocks
back and forth, groaning, “Vroom, vroom.” The squirrel moans back, “Oh yeah.
I’m a squirrel and that feels grrrreat.”
Meanwhile, Stan’s wife Francine
is forced to take care of Bullock’s adopted son while they go out and party.
Fed up and exhausted, Francine demands that Stan return the boy to his father.
Not wanting to offend his boss, Stan flies to Fallujah and rescues Bullock’s
wife so that she can take care of the child. However, by the time she reunites
with Bullock, he has found himself a mistress, Coco – a crude, overweight Asian
woman. Bullock brags to Stan, “She’s Asian, she’s loose, and she’s fat. I hit
the trifecta.” Bullock hides Coco from his wife at Stan’s house where she walks
around topless, causing one character to announce, “And just like that, I’m
gay…I wonder if I’m a top or a bottom. If I had to guess, I’d say bottom - a
Since when is it acceptable for
families gathering around the television at dinnertime on Sundays to be
subjected to sexual fetishes, culturally insensitive, degrading portrayals of
women, and frank discussions about gay sex? Moreover, is there any network
still committed to preserving this hour for families? NBC has recently used the
Sunday 7 p.m. timeslot to air clip-shows of Saturday Night Live
sketches. The “Not-Ready-for-Prime-Time Players” often perform skits that are
simply not appropriate for prime time. If audiences can’t trust the
publicly-owned broadcast networks to adhere to long-held standards of
responsible programming, where else can discriminating viewers turn?
For making Sunday at 7 p.m.
completely inappropriate for families, and for once again violating the public’s
trust, Fox’s American Dad rightly deserves the title of Worst TV
Show of the Week.
