Curious, and conflicting news to report from FOX's third Seth MacFarlane-created Animation Domination staple 'The Cleveland Show,' as heavy rumors seem to be circulating about the show's cancellation. The current, fourth season will wrap up this coming May, with a production cycle that would very shortly require a decision from FOX, though the broadcast network has apparently denied reports of 'The Cleveland Show's cancellation. Find out 'The Cleveland Show's true fate inside!
Barely one full day after the tragic events of the Boston Marathon bombings, and already a tasteless parody video has begun to make the rounds, splicing together several different clips from FOX's long-running animation titan 'Family Guy' to make it appear as if a March 17 episode predicted yesterday's attacks. While the video makes the rounds, series creator and animation magnate Seth MacFarlane has issued his own statement denouncing the hoax.
Recent Oscars host and animation magnate Seth MacFarlane might be branching out into live-action TV, but not everything about the 'Ted' creator's latest work will feel unfamiliar. After years of voicing Chris Griffin on MacFarlane's FOX flagship 'Family Guy' and taking playful potshots at one another with regard to 'Robot Chicken,' Seth Green has officially joined the cast of MacFarlane's upcoming live-action sitcom 'Dads.' Find out what brings the Seths together inside!
If you make a film that does does over half a billion worldwide and then host the Oscars, it looks like you can get whomever you want in your next project. This explains why Seth MacFarlane's comic western 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' is looking to add Liam Neeson and Giovanni Ribisi.
There's been no shortage of controversy following the 2013 Oscars, most of it dealing with host Seth MacFarlane's particular brand of comedy, which is either hilariously crude or mean-spirited and misogynistic, depending on who you ask. But with ratings higher than last year's ceremony (40.3 million people tuned in to watch 'Argo' win Best Picture), you'd wonder if the Academy would decide that further outcry was worth it and ask the 'Family Guy' creator back for a second time. However, MacFarlane himself preemptively answered that question on Twitter.
One thing that was missing from the 2013 Oscars ceremony was Peter Griffin -- although, that might have been a good thing. Seth MacFarlane has summoned his 'Family Guy' persona many times before in public appearances, but when he hosted the Oscars this Sunday, he managed to restrain himself. However, if you were watching the show in RI and managed to leave the TV on for the proceeding ABC 6 news segment, you would have seen the real-life Peter Griffin, or rather the man on whom MacFarlane based the cartoon character.
The 2013 Oscars ceremony, hosted by Seth MacFarlane, started off with a bang. We knew there was gonna be at least one or two musical numbers, given the comedian's past musical turns for 'Family Guy,' but were you prepared for Harry Potter and Robin Boy Wonder singing and dancing together? Or, for that matter, Captain Kirk beaming in from the future?
Seth MacFarlane is seemingly Hollywood's busiest man. Not only does he have a block of animated programing on the Fox network, he just made the smash hit 'Ted,' is about to host the Oscars, and has at least two movies in the works. Though there was word that 'Ted 2' would be filming shortly, it looks like his comic Western 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' is coming first, and will be co-starring Charlize Theron.
Between the ongoing success of 'Family Guy,' 'American Dad,' 'The Cleveland Show,' 'Ted' and his upcoming gig hosting the Oscars, Seth MacFarlane has the world by a string. And with live-action success at the box-office, where better to turn next than a live-action TV series? As pilot season picks up, FOX has given a strong display of faith to MacFarlane picking up to series live-action comedy pilot 'Dads,' but what role will MacFarlane take on the actual show?
