Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane says sometimes he wishes his hit Fox cartoon series Family Guy would end it’s run.
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter Seth revealed:
“Part of me thinks that Family Guy should have already ended. I think seven seasons is about the right lifespan for a TV series.”
When talking about the show nearing 200 episodes in it’s 10th season MacFarlane said:
“I talk to the fans and in a way I’m kind of secretly hoping for them to say, ‘We’re done with it.'”
“There are plenty of people who say the show is kind of over the hill … but still the vast majority go pale in the face when I mention the possibility.”
Fans of the show shouldn’t worry too much about a cancellation as Fox is winning big with the show which has a heavy male teen and young adults audience that earns the network $220,000 for each 30 second advertisement.
Even if the show was taken off the air MacFarlane’s brand of humor won’t disappear thanks to his never ending supply of cartoons including The Cleveland Show and American Dad. MacFarlane is also working on an updated Flintstones cartoon.
I personally would be bummed out to watch the show go off the air. Are you a fan of Family Guy? If you are do you believe that the show is over the hill or should Seth MacFarlane continue to give his best effort to develop more laugh out loud moments for Peter and the rest of the Griffin family and their quirky gang of friends?
