Fox Renews Family Guy, The Cleveland Show
Seth MacFarlane continues his animation domination: Fox has renewed Family Guy and The Cleveland Show, the network announced Monday.
"For nine seasons, our viewers have been cracked up, delighted, surprised and, at times, gloriously disturbed by the mind of Seth MacFarlane — and they keep coming back for more," Fox President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly said. "The Griffins and the Browns have become cornerstones of our Sunday nights, and we can't wait to find out what new adventures Seth, Mike and Rich cook up for them next season."
