This is great news. I was more than certain that the show was getting axed, especially with the American Dad renewal. With a short order (no pun intended) of 13 episodes, I'd expect to see this come back next Spring, once they're run through the gamut of AD/Cleveland episodes early in the fall.
If you got turned off by the admittedly-awful first episode, give it another chance. You won't be sorry.
The first episode of this "season" was in 2010. There's a clear narrative they're trying to tell over the course of the season, but it's a bit tough to get into it when they alternate airing eight episodes and disappearing for four months.
