The 11th season of "American Dad!" finds a new home on TBS. The long-running comedy follows diehard Republican and card-carrying NRA member Stan Smith (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and his hilariously odd family in Langley Falls, Va. In "Blonde Ambition," Hayley decides she might get more attention if she becomes a blonde, while Steve and Stan search for a new home for the Smiths.
In the new episode "Jacksonville, Hour Two," host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Stuart Whitehurst travel to the St. Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum to get the background on a 17th-century pirate book. Other highlights of the hour include a Babyland Rag topsy-turvy doll, circa 1905; a diamond Art Deco bracelet watch; and Robert E. Lee's map of pivotal battle areas around Richmond, Va.
If "The Voice" were a hair salon (no, wait, stay with us), the Battles would be the "lather, rinse, repeat" portion of the competition. In the new "The Battles, Part 3," once again the coaches and their music-pro advisors -- Blake Shelton and Little Big Town, Adam Levine and Stevie Nicks, Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys, Gwen Stefani and spousal unit Gavin Rossdale -- collaborate to decide which, if any, contenders cut from other teams should join their own. Carson Daly hosts.
