In what may have been an attempt to be funny or clever, or perhaps just another internet hoax, a YouTube user spliced together pieces of an episode of Family Guy to make it look like the New England-set animated comedy series predicted the Boston Marathon bombing. Series creator Seth MacFarlane addressed the video, calling it abhorrent and sending his thoughts to the victims of the recent bombing, which he calls a "crime and a tragedy."
If you were thinking that Fox could really use a bit more Seth MacFarlane, we have good news for you. (And if you were thinking Fox has too much MacFarlane, you might want to stop reading now.) The Family Guy creator and his Ted co-writers are bringing a bit of live-action funny to the network, as Fox has reportedly given their new comedy Dads a series order.
Earlier this month, we learned that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane crashed a class at UCLA to talk about his work for an episode of mtvU's Stand In. The episode is set to air next week, and we now have a preview for MacFarlane's appearance, which has him doing the voice of one of his most popular characters
Seth MacFarlane knows a little something about voice-acting, and come to think of it, he knows a lot of something about Fox animated comedies, and his voice-acting talent isn't exclusive to his own shows. The Family Guy creator/voice actor is set to lend his voice to one of the few Fox Sunday night animated comedies that isn't his - The Simpsons.
Between Family Guy, The Cleveland Show and American Dad, Seth MacFarlane has a pretty sizable corner in Fox's primetime line-up. MacFarlane, who recently hosted the Saturday Night Live season premiere, is working with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild on a new comedy, which would be a live-action comedy for Fox.
Seth MacFarlane hosted Saturday Night Live last night for the series' 38th season. The show began with an Obama Address cold open, which led into MacFarlane's musical and voice-filled opening monologue. Check out the highlight videos ahead, which also include the musical performances by Frank Ocean.
Hot off the success of Ted, and that Family Guy Wheat Thins commercial, which has been around for a while but never seems to get old (much like the Cool hWhip scene by which it's inspired), Seth MacFarlane will do the honors of hosting the 38th season premiere of NBC's long-running sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live.
American Dad, one of the other Seth MacFalane television shows, is up next in Ballroom 20. MacFarlane will be back to lead the panel that includes cast members Wendy Schaal, Scott Grimes, Rachael MacFarlane, Dee Bradley Baker as well as producers Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman.
Family Guy has found a huge audience since its return to Fox and had one of the funniest panels of all of Comic-Con last year. Fortunately pretty much the same people are back including voice actors Alex Bornstein, Mila Kunis, Seth Green, Mike Henry and, of course, creator Seth MacFarlane.
Having forged an empire out of Family Guy, the show that wouldn't die, Seth MacFarlane has gone on to put the "domination" in Fox's Sunday night Animation Domination line-up. This is the guy with the stones and the pull to reboot The Flintstones. Like him or not, at this point, Seth MacFarlane can do pretty much whatever the hell he wants to. And now he wants to get Star Trek back on the air.
I don't usually care about the Hollywood gossip. However, every now and then there comes a story of a Hollywood encounter between two intelligent and well respected people, that strikes an interested beyond the tabloid. Such is the case during a segment on this evening's Piers Morgan Tonight when guest Seth MacFarlane tells a pretty interesting anecdote about a testy encounter with The Daily Show's Jon Stewart.
After his success/failure/success with Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane's second hit animated comedy to hit Fox Sundays is about to enter its seventh season with no signs of slowing down. The show is about conservative CIA agent and family man, Stan Smith as the titular American Dad trying to take care of his band of misfit family members, which includes a wife, a son, a daughter, an alien and talking fish with German accent. Fox just released a tease for the 'Hot Water' season premiere and it showcases their first guest star of the season
I'm so happy to be the one to bring you constant updates on the goings-on with the roast of actor-turned-warlock Charlie Sheen. Yep, I knew I was put on this Earth for a reason and that reason is to bring you weekly, almost daily, news updates to build anticipation for what is surely to be the roast of the century. Who am I kidding, beneath all this bubbling cynicism and too-coolness, I'm going to end up watching and to their credit, these promos for The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen aren't that bad.
This could be it. I can't imagine Charlie Sheen being able to suck much more out of his meltdown/career yet I also can't imagine a more fitting way for the notorious warlock to go out... like they say, it's better to burn out than to fade away. I'm sure there will be more than enough burning going on with the amount of fodder Sheen has provided for the roasters. It's shooting fish in a fish tank (no one puts fish in barrels anymore... do they?).
He hassled the Hoff. He tormented Trump. And next month, should winning be on his side, Seth MacFarlane will shake things up at the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen. Comedy Central announced that the Family Guy creator would be master of ceremonies at Sheen’s roast next month.
