The Emmy Award-winning cartoon was canceled by FOX in 2002, but revived three years later, and the series, now in its 10th season, went on to become a huge success for the network.
MacFarlane is convinced he should have ended the show on a high note after the seventh season, even though devoted fans "go pale" at the mere mention of "Family Guy" ending.
He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Part of me thinks that 'Family Guy' should have already ended. I think seven seasons is about the right life span 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."
When the show eventually does end, the last line better be:
Ladies and gentlemen........Mr. Conway Twitty
Before we get rid of Family guy, can we please get rid of all of this stupid reallity BS that's on? If I wanted to see a bunch of nobodys try to 'distinguish' themselves, I would go to the local skate park. I don't need to see a bunch of crying dancers or a slough of singers who know they can't sing yet try out just to get attention. And have you seen the reality crap on cable?! Americas next top model?? who was the last top model? I wouldn't even ask those girls out (and i'm no prize)! How many cooking, designing, dancing, singing, surviving, etc shows do we need? I turn on the TV for 2 things. First NEWS (not cable news because it is spun out of control), then Comedy. I have enough reality when the TV is off! Make me laugh, CLOWNS!!
in summary, don't take a comedy off the air until you have a suitable replacement.
