Goodbye Family Guy?

OK, I'll say it: it isn't so.

Seth McFarlane is currently under negotiations with FOX about his new contract. The current contract runs out in early 2007, and McFarlane still hasn't finalized a deal with the network even though the new season is supposed to start filming (um...drawing?) very soon. Variety reports that the production offices are currently closed.

But I say the network and McFarlane make a deal. The show has been a hit and an important show for FOX since coming back, and I don't see them letting it slide away (again). Though wouldn't it be interesting if FOX for some reason didn't renew the contract and NBC picked it up? I don't see that happening, but that would be a cool twist and an instant hit for the Peacock network.

They'll just reconsider once DVD sales go through the roof and an online petition to bring back the show gets votebombed... again.

Doesn't Fox own the show though? Seems like they could just can him, much like Nickelodeon did for Ren & Stimpy. Granted, it would likely blow up in their faces the same way, but the nets are always about their money anyway.

He might be holding it back though, asking FOX for commitments to American Dad and his live action, Rob Cordry starring, sitcom 'The Winner'.

Family Guy does well, but not that well that another network would pay over the odds for new episodes of Family Guy.

Cartoon Network or Comedy Central might though.
