‘Family Guy’ Continues Without Show’s Creator

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Animation, Comedy, FOX, 24, Family Guy, House, News,

Family Guy castFOX has been hit especially hard by the writers’ strike, and already some big ratings shows are off the schedule. There will be no 24, no more House, and all the network’s scripted shows are pretty much up in the air. So, FOX is going to go it alone.

Though creator and voice talent is on the picket line with the other writers, the network is producing new episodes of the hit animated comedy without his input. (Last Sunday’s episode was the last episode completed pre-strike.)  Although MacFarlane told FOX they could continue the show without his him, he hoped they would not.  Unfortunately, that’s just what they’re doing. Best of luck.

MacFarlane, by the way, voices main characters Peter Griffin, dog Brian and homicidal son Stewie.
