MacFarlane ready for 'Family Guy' to end


Seth Macfarlane is secretly hoping fans will grow tired of his animated hit "Family Guy," because he believes the show should have ended several seasons ago.

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."
