American Dad!: Season 9
American Dad!’s ninth season debuted on the Fox network on September 30, 2012, at 9:30/8:30c, and concluded on May 12, 2013. Guest stars for the season include Mariah Carey, Rupert Grint, Jon Hamm, Alison Brie, Nathan Fillion, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Will Forte, Charlie Day, Shaun White, Wayne Brady, Michelle Dockery & frequent guest star Patrick Stewart. Episode plots include Jeff being stranded on an alien space ship, Klaus finding his human body, Roger becoming Stan’s stepfather and Hayley getting a job as a bar singer for Roger, etc. The episode “Minstrel Krampus” was scheduled to air on December 16, 2012, but was replaced by a repeat of “Wheels & the Legman and the Case of Grandpa’s Key” out of sensitivity for the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. To compensate for this, they aired the episode “National Treasure 4: Baby Franny: She’s Doing Well: The Hole Story” early. “Minstrel Krampus” has since been rescheduled for the following season.
