Fox Renews Family Guy and American Dad for the 2013-2014 Season

While all the other networks are busy announcing their renewals for next season, Fox is doing them one better by announcing renewals for NEXT next season. Okay, it's only because animated shows run on a year-in-advance production cycle, but still.

Fox has ordered an eleventh full season of Family Guy and an eighth full season of American Dad, ensuring that both series will remaind on the air through the 2013-2014 season. Wait, American Dad has been on the air for eight seasons? Time, where have you gone? Both orders are reportedly for the standard 22 episodes.

Currently not invited to the renewal party is Seth MacFarlane's other Fox animated series The Cleveland Show. While it's already renewed for 2012-2013, its future beyond that is still in question.
