Even Seth McFarlane Thinks Family Guy Should Be Off The Air

Seth McFarlane Hates Family Guy

The creator of Family Guy, Seth McFarlane, agrees with people who complain about the quality of new Family Guy episodes — and says it should have been off the air years ago!

And we thought he was the one fighting to keep it on. Interesting!

Here's what he said:

“Part of me thinks that Family Guy should have already ended. I think seven seasons is about the right lifespan for a TV series. 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.”

Wow! That's extremely open about the whole thing WHILE the show is still on air!

As long as he keeps wanting to do American Dad (which is vastly superior to Family Guy), we'll be more than okay if Family Guy bites the dust.

How do U feel about the newer episodes of Family Guy? Should it be on forever??

    Er….
    Perez… or whoever writes this crap…
    Don't you remember ? You ran that story a few days ago ?



  2. 2

    You ran that stoy 3 days ago!



  3. 3

    You definitely wrote this same story just a few days ago.



  4. 4

    You might wanna look on Page 5, under your TV News category. This same damn story is there. Ugh. Lazy ass.

    Hilarious show! Love Seth McFarlane's twisted sense of humor! He may be tired of doing the show but I'm not tired of watching it.

    american dad vastly superior to family guy…? what are you smoking?



  7. 7

    lol… how embarrassing for a blog to rerun a story like this so soon… Anyways, suziq, American Dad is much better than Family Guy, though Family Guy did used to be quite good at its height. It's now dog tired as the Simpsons..

    If he was smart he would put his time and energy on Family Guy and kill off Cleveland show & American Dad. The only reason I think Family Guy is hurting.

    Re: Rocketboy – i agree kill the clevland show. but i like american dad!

    So Here's What: Cleveland is by far the best and fresh McFarlane show on right now. Family Guy is one of the funniest shows ever but it's wearing out his welcome. American Dad sucks pretty hard, except for Jm J Bullock…which makes me think I'd much rather be watching Queen Duck.

    i dont see family guy getting of air but latley the episodes that he is showing are really obnoxious everytime i see them like the simspons.



  12. 12

    And the ones who don't think it's funny and want it to go off the air… are the ones who can't take a joke and take everything to literally and they may also have a stick up their !!!.



  13. 13

    this article is ridic. A. Family Guy is still funny. B. Whoever commented about this is insane." we'll be more than okay if Family Guy bites the dust." Really? Really? Of all the crap on tv…you want Family Guy to bite the dust. Ugh! Epic Fail Mr. Hilton :(



  14. 14

    THIS KILLS ME!! I LOVE FAMILY GUY!!! I can't believe he would be that insensitive about it! THE FANS brought it back twice because of insane DVD box set sales! It pisses me off because The Simpsons which is now going to Season 25 is lame and boring! How fair is this……It better go on at least to Season 15! Don't stop at 10!!!



  15. 15

    American Dad superior to Family Guy? You're joking, correct?



  16. 16

    He looks like a better aged Peter Brady… does he know that? Does he have doppleganger martini's with Christopher Knight? They could do a "Am I cool enough to have a drink with myself" commercials! No seriously, has he ever mentioned it? BrB got to google…



  17. 17

    I want Family Guy off the air soon!!!!



  18. 18

    I HATE AMERICAN DAD. I LOVE LOVE LOVE FAMILY GUY!!

    I can't *STAND* American Dad. It feels like a bad knockoff of Family Guy. The characters are all two dimensional and incredibly annoying. The jokes are crude and tasteless. I still enjoy Family Guy even though they've jumped the shark and now they do stupid stuff like run 2 minute long cilps of some old band singing a song for no apparent reason, just to waste a bunch of time. Feels like Seth has given up trying on everything basically. Not a big fan of the Cleveland Show either. But American Dad is just awful. Absolutely none of the characters are likable at all.



  20. 20

    A few days ago you covered this story saying that you disagreed and today you run the same story and say that you agree. Uh…yeah.

    The Simpsons is really stale now, but its first 11 or 12 seasons were gold!
    For someone who fought to get Family Guy back on the air, I don't really understand where Seth is coming from. I think he might be stretching himself too thin between the 3 shows. Or maybe he's made his multi-millions and is over it now?
