TBS said it will make the first episode of the upcoming all-new season of American Dad! available for viewing on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube a week ahead of the show's launch on in its new TV home.
The first episode will be available for streaming via Facebook (www.facebook.com/AmericanDad), Twitter (twitter.com/americandadtbs) and YouTube (www.youtube.com/user/TBS) starting Sunday night, Oct. 12, at midnight (ET). The episodes will remain available for 48 hours, until Tuesday night, Oct. 14, at midnight (ET).
Time Warner-owned TBS ordered a 15-episode season of the animated comedy in 2013, after it ran for 10 seasons on Fox.
"This sneak peek is a wonderful way to reward the nearly 20 million fans of American Dad! on Facebook and Twitter for their longtime devotion to the series," Tricia Melton, senior vice president of entertainment branding & marketing for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies, said in a release. "It's also a great way to build up the excitement for the show in its new home on TBS.”
TBS and sister network Adult Swim will launch the new season of American Dad! on Monday, Oct. 20. The premiere will air on TBS at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) and on Adult Swim at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). In later weeks, new episodes of American Dad! will premiere on TBS each Monday night at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), with encores on Adult Swim the following Monday night at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).
