Production begins on sixth season of Family Guy
Two and a half months ago, when negotiations between 20th Century Fox and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane reached a standstill, the writers for the series were told not to report to work. According to Variety, the suits at 20th Century Fox didn't want to stop production midway because a deal was never solidified, despite the fact MacFarlane's contract wasn't up for several months.
Of course, now the writers have lost a bit of time, but hopefully they've all been using their free time to come up with scenarios to follow this sentence: "Remember the time when. . ."
Sorry, that joke was too easy. Actually, I'm a little ashamed for even writing it. Really, I like Family Guy. It's my light and fluffy Sunday night snack, a crunchy wafer to top off the larger meal that is The Simpsons. I guess American Dad would be, I don't know, a box of raisins? I'm having trouble holding this analogy together.
