    You could judge him on the Dexter's Laboratory, Cow and Chicken, I Am Weasel, and Johnny Bravo episodes he wrote
    Or you could judge him by his successful singing career, or the fact that he swayed Fox to air the sequel of Carl Sagan's Cosmos on Fox prime time television. A series he also happens to be producing along side Ann Druyan and Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Or that he helped create
    Library of Congress posted:
    "approximately 800 boxes of materials that document Saganís life and work and includes his extensive correspondence with scientific colleagues and other important figures of the 20th century. It also includes book drafts, publications files, "idea files" on various subjects, records of various symposia, NASA files and academic files covering the years he taught at Cornell University. Among the personal files are his birth announcement, handwritten notebooks of his earliest thoughts and grammar-school report cards. In addition to manuscript materials, the collection includes photographs, audiotapes and videocassettes. Researchers and scholars will be able to use the collection once it has been fully processed by the Libraryís archivists."

    Nah, or we could judge him on Family Guy, which he no longer want's to continue.

    Lately, my dad's been getting into family guy, and although I've been peer pressured into disliking Family Guy due to FP, I actually found a few moments in certain episodes funny, you guys are too sheepish, time to have your own opinions n shit.

    And also his first feature film, 'Ted,' which I thought was surprisingly good.

    family guy was hilarious, but then it started getting washed out. more and more pop culture references were being used and it eventually became seth's way of voicing his opinions.

    sort of like the simpsons except not as tragic.

    Say whatever you like about the show, but Macfarlane can be very funny at times. Rather have him host the Oscars than some of the others they've had through the years (who have always played it safe with the jokes and so on, thus making it extremely repetitive).

    Look at what happened when Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes. He wasn't afraid of pushing the jokes and I don't think Macfarlane will be either.
    Family Guy was good earlier in it's lifespan, but now FOX is just milking to the point where it isnt even funny anymore

    I can see him doing it, but not without part of it in one of his cartoon voices.

    He did a terrible job hosting Charlie Sheen's roast, what made anyone think he'd be a good candidate for this?

    Edited:

    or the fact that he swayed Fox to air the sequel of Carl Sagan's Cosmos on Fox prime time television. A series he also happens to be producing along side Ann Druyan and Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
    Holy shit

    Have you own opinions for once, Jesus. You realize that Seth Macfarlane doesn't write every single joke on Family Guy, right? It's done by a whole team of writers.

    Seth Macfarlane is a great public speaker and a funny one at that. Quit being afraid you'll be rated Boxes for liking his shit.

    If you hold the opposite opinion I'm sure it does look that way, but don't be a drama queen.

    Edited:

    I'm not surprised family guy isn't funny now when people like this write for it. Sometimes if I'm trying not to laugh I go to this guy's twitter feed and read for a minute or two, it works miracles. Seriously.

    Anyone who hates on Seth because of Family Guy or the other Fox show's he is forced to still contribute to need to look at him overall. He is a very talented entertainer, and a even more talented public figure.

    Family Guy used to be hilarious, I don't know what season it happened in but it has gone to shit. but all the bitching and complaining about the show is more annoying than the show itself (like all most terrible shows)

    I don't think it's really the cutaway jokes that make Family Guy bad, it's the absolute laziness with pop culture references. They're not even really references, they're often just copying a scene from a movie verbatim. It's like a pop culture cover band.

    It's probably gone to shit because even Seth MacFarlane himself stopped wanting to do the show a good long while ago. Episodes like 'Road to the Multiverse' prove that there's definitely still some great talent there but I'm starting to think many of them have simply lost interest.

    Well I am glad at least the show ran on for so long after being renewed. I remember listening to the commentary of one of the early family guy episodes right before they got cancelled and he said he was so upset to see the show he dreamed so hard to be created was cancelled.

    Same thing that happened to family guy happened to the simpsons.
    Every episode is littered with celeberties and pop cultur references. Sure, they might have some fun parts, but otherwise it's a mess. The older episodes where much better.

    I haven't actually watched American Dad or The Cleveland Show because they don't air in Sweden.

    Well what can you do when you've run out of family based jokes? It's like the hollyoaks syndrome. they've run out of bad things to happen so they get stuck in a constant loop. With hollyoaks its slags sleeping with manslags and in family guy its flashbacks or "RANDOM!" stuff.

    He's a really good singer, he performed at the BBC Proms a couple of years ago and was great. You can tell he likes music too.
    More exactly, the 2009 Proms from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

    Overall, a talented person.

    There'll be some singing at 2012's Oscar.

    That's from the episode where The Simpsons go to Italy to pick up Mr. Burns' car and they ended up meeting Sideshow Bob.

    and I've only seen the episode once.



    Yeah, Family Guy was pretty good before and a tiny bit after the cancellation. Show creators showing a lack of interest will make the show go downhill - same with Spongebob Squarepants.
