Family Guy Returning

From the New York Times

This Emmy-nominated comedy, canceled and left for dead by Fox, has now returned to full-scale production in a rare case of television resurrection. It is one of two prime-time animated series that Mr. MacFarlane is making for the network.

"Family Guy" was revived because of an unusual turn of events. While the show was on hiatus, reruns of it on Cartoon Network proved unexpectedly successful, especially among a prized television demographic group: men 18 to 34. The series drew more young men in its late-night Cartoon Network slot (it is usually on at 11 p.m. or later) than two of its broadcast competitors, CBS's "Late Show With David Letterman" and NBC's "Tonight Show With Jay Leno." (At the end of this month Cartoon Network plans a special week of shows, including appearances by a costumed Mr. MacFarlane portraying several of his characters.)

Not a big fan myself, but I know a bunch of you folks might be interested.

Cartoon Network is going to be airing it right? Oh how I hope Fox wont have anything to do with it.

Ya aint gonna like this then, Alex...

Current plans are for ""Family Guy"" to return to Fox in the spring or early summer of 2005.

Here''s the glock just in case you need it Alex.

Family guy rulz!

Was that show ever doomed from the Get-Go. One wonders if the people at Nick had ever heard of Jhonen Vasquez or read ""Johnny The Homicidal Maniac"" or if they just heard the word ""cartoon show"" and started drooling.

Putting it on Fox in the summer isn''t so bad. It won''t get preempted by football, plus this year Fox has thrown about seven flavors of dog sh*t on their schedule and it doesn''t look like they''ll get pulled because of low ratings.

You don''t think ""Meth & Red"" has got legs? It''s funny because they''re black and everyone else is white!

That''s the funniest thing I''ve read all day.

Every time I see this show I can only think of G4 passing out advertisements for it at E3 saying ""Check out this new show, you''ll love it!"" Then they hand one to Certis and he screams at them ""What the hell is wrong with you people?"" Then there were some more explitives.

Nickelodeon was the death knell for that show, they treat all their cartoon shows like sh*t. Even back in my day when they started Nicktoons. The only people that can seem to get a fair shake out of them was the guys that do Rugrats simply because they''re so marketable. If you can''t turn your cartoon into a plush doll, we''re going to fire you and hire Koreans who can!

Reminds me of a Simpsons line, something like ""Ethnic mismatch comedy #357 ... has been canceled.""

Welcome back old friends....love Family Guy

Ummmm... didn''t we already talk about this? I remember hearing this quite a ways back. Now if only they''d bring back Futurama (zim would be badass too, but I doubt it, maybe Spike will pick it up in syndication.

That''d be great, but I doubt Spike would be the ones to do it. Spike TV likes Stripperella and This Just In, Zim doesn''t exactly fir their bill, what with not ahdering to their ""Tits and Dick Jokes"" policy. Maybe Sci-Fi will at some point.
