That would soo rule...

Didn't they cancel it once after the first season, but strong viewer support convinced the network to bring it back for a 2nd and 3rd season?

It also costs an unholy amount of money to produce each episode. Which is the only reason I can see to cancel it. Fox had a good show on their hands.

Yea but after it was cancelled the first time (and wasn't it cancelled a 2nd time before it was brought back before the final big ax?), didn't FOX fire all the writers and bring in a whole new set? You could tell the writers had changed cause Stewie stopped trying to kill his mother and only kept talking trash to her.

That makes my nipples hard.

I think the show should be included in the Sunday night lineup should it return.

Let's just hope Fox isn't stupid enough to put it on the Thursday Night Timeslot of Death again.

Well, if you listen to Seth MacFarlane, Stewie's character changed directions because the whole "world domination" thing was kinda played out. Stewie always wanted to kill Lois, all the way up to the last season. The writers started developing his character in different directions, including toying around with his sexuality. I think Seth even said that there was an episode written in which Stewie realizes he's gay.

There *are* a couple good things said in the otherwise unimpressive DVD commentary.

Now, if I remember correctly this subject came up before not too long ago. I also remember Seth MacFarlane saying there wouldn't be any new episodes on tv, but a direct to video and DVD Family Guy movie was in the works at Fox. I wonder what's changed since then and now? This USA Today article doesn't even mention the development of the movie or have any quotes from MacFarlane, so color me a little cynical/skeptical for now.

That article got one thing wrong. The ratings weren't a problem... playing "where the fuck did they schedule it?" was the problem. Even DLing (in the days BEFORE it came to Adult Swim/DVD) and watching religiously, at least 20 of the eps I saw on Cartoon Network were new to me.

That being said... THANK CHRIST. Now if only the Critic or Duckman had been cancelled shortly before the DVD era too.

Eh, they brought back The Critic on Fox, remember? That was maybe the steepest drop-off in quality I've ever seen between seasons.

What's changed is that Volume II is selling even better than Volume I on DVD, so Fox is expressing interest in bringing the show back. MacFarlane never wanted to stop making episodes in the first place - Fox didn't want them anymore. And the show was too costly to realistically make a whole new season on Cartoon Network, so he had to settle for a straight-to-DVD feature.

Really? I thought animation was cheaper than your average live-action show. I know Simpsons costs a fortune, but that's because the voice actors all get paid a bunch.

According to MacFarlane in this interview- it costs nearly $1 million per episode.http://filmforce.ign.com/articles/429/ 429628p1.html

$1 million per show? That's surprising...Buffy cost roughly as much per show (at least in its early years) and they had sets to build, decent special effects, etc.

By the way....the interview with MacFarlane that I mentioned is a very interesting read. It's a bit long, but worth it. I linked it on my last post.
