America Demands a Fourth Seth MacFarlane Series


Let’s face it: there’s a lot of Seth MacFarlane comedy around these days. He’s got three shows on Fox and he wrote/directed/voiced a talking stuff animal in Ted, the year’s highest-grossing comedy film, but the American public’s insatiable appetite for sex jokes and pop culture references is still exceeding MacFarlane’s output. The Family Guy creator just signed a deal to produce a new live-action program at Fox, which would be his fourth show at the network. The yet-to-be-titled series, created by MacFarlane’s Ted co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesly Wild, will be a single camera live-action show about two successful 30something guys whose worlds are turned upside-down when their wild-and-crazy dads move in with them. So, it’s basically the Adam Sandler flop That’s My Boy, times two. This is MacFarlane’s second foray into live-action TV after the one-season-and-out Rob Corddry vehicle The Winner back in 2007. Hopefully, with a fourth Seth MacFarlane show on the air, fans will be satisfied and won’t demand a fifth series because the guy must be completely exhausted at this point.
