Finally, we have American Dad, which once again washes away the badness of the previous hour and gives me pure, unfiltered funny. And hey, wacky idea, it's a plot where the hurricane...actually IS the plot!

Well, that's not 100% true. The plot is all about Stan and how he can't be counted on in a time of crisis. And in true AD fashion, he winds up making everything worse to the point that he winds up harpooning poor Francine. And of course, he learns nothing from it, but he says it in such an offbeat fashion that it ends up being funny.

Key difference between Stan not learning anything and the Griffins not learning anything tonight: When Stan does something terrible, at least he means well. When the Griffins were doing something terrible, they were doing it to be assholes. How can one MacFarlane show get it right when the other one gets it so wrong?

Thumbs up for AD this week.

Show started off a little slow, but picked up as things worsened and all the problems began to pile on top of each other. I actually thought Roger's clingy girl would last a little longer in the episode than she did. But you could definitely see her death coming.

As a sidenote, due to the PPV and the fact that I was DVR'ing a few specials, AD was the only Animation Domination I could record, figuring I'd catch up on the rest on Hulu today. Apparently day-after shows are now exclusively for Dish Network subscribers, and the rest of us plebeians have to wait eight days. D'oh!
