Mr. MacFarlane also tips his hand on his plans to make a movie based on the series. Speaking at the summer press tour of the Television Critics Association, Mr. MacFarlane also explains why Cleveland was chosen as the lead character for the new spinoff show, and how Mr. MacFarlane juggles three programs.

  1. It is the right time for a film. Family Guy is at the peak of its power and is still fresh. The Simpsons left it too long and the show had become stale by the time it came out, it has also lost its edge where Family Guy continues to push boundaries, whether it be taste, shock, innovative comedy or just the fact that the put on the screen what a lot of the population (UK included) think.. Long may they continue to do so…

  2. He’s BRILLIANT. Brilliant.

  3. dynomite. l luv family guy. the old man pervert is my favorite.

  4. Family Guy sholud be canceld they have declining quality since the returned to FOX

  5. I’d love to see a Family guy movie on the big screen. The DVD movie “Stewie Griffin: The untold story” was a bit of a dissapointment since it was just 3 episodes back-to-back. My only worry is that Seth said the only reason to make a movie is so they can do stuff you wouldn’t get to do on TV. I just hope they don’t go overboard with sex/shit gags and take away from the overall plot.

  6. I’m not seeing the whole thing here, mine keeps cutting off in the middle. Maybe it’s a problem with my computer. I don’t know. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?

  7. Seth Macfarlane is BRILLIANT. I keep googling any tours Seth might be doing. It is a DREAM of mine to meet him. Plus, Amanda Byne’s has got NOTHIN on me. haha jk. It would be sweet to meet him though.

  8. Family Guy is such the most wonderful thing I’ve ever seen. The movie is fantastic and the best: it’s uncut. Here in Brazil only members of Cable TV (like Sky or Net) can watch the whole seasons, so the Globo Tv company is already exibiting a couple of episodes every saturday after 4:00 Am… it’s too late to watch But i keep awake just to taste this visual delicious… to Seth Macfarlane: You’re increadible, a genius! Love you work, love this family… thanx for Family Guy!!

  9. It will SUCK.

  10. ehh…I mean, why have another comedy where the basic approach is a family? I mean, have some variety. Remember Futurama? That was so far from the Simpsons, and it was great. American Dad is good, but I don’t appreciate having YET ANOTHER prime time animated sitcom by Seth MacFarlane that just hits Family issues. I can deal with Family Guy being the Simpsons alter ego, but Cleveland’s family is so much alike with 3 other shows(King of the Hill is much more realistic so excluding that…) I really can’t see all of these being produced at the same time without interchangeable or even similiar plots.
    Seriously man, get some fresh material. I like your jokes but all in all your not pulling out any ‘brilliance’.

What do you want us to think? It seems like you cant really get behind a unique thought. Anyway, thats just my opinion.

  20. Is the booing of Sarah Palin on previous night of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ improper? really do not like Sarah Palin, seriously do not order her book. Just do not be her Facebook chum. Please do not vote for her but be sure to have some manners, booing is actually so irritating.
