In more recent seasons, you'll see Roger popping up from under the dashboard of Stan's car in various disguises, but for the first four seasons of the series, the ever-changing newspaper headline was what keen-eyed fans looked out for. From topical political statements to snarky quips to hysterical one-liners, here's a list of all the American Dad newspaper headlines that have graced your TV screen. Vote up the newspapers on American Dad that made you laugh the most!
