Meet a most unlikely box office champion: a foul-mouthed teddy bear from Boston. ' Ted' seemed a strange proposition from the get-go, but the little guy with a big heart and extensive vocabulary (courtesy of writer-director-star Seth MacFarlane) made a hefty splash when he burst onto the scene in late-June with a $54 million opening. And now, four months later, he's the King of the R-Rated Comedies.

Ted 2: What Will Seth MacFarlane Do For an Encore?

And his trademark pop culture-possessed sense of humor draws audiences more than does this film's specific story of arrested development.
But knowing Hollywood, we can guarantee that its first response this morning is to focus not on the “fluke” $54 million gross of a fresh property but on how to turn that newly minted name brand into an ongoing franchise. So what will Seth MacFarlane cook up for 'Ted 2?'
