Family Guy: 2012-13 Ratings

The ratings for Family Guy were down last season but the show was still too profitable to worry about being cancelled. How will the cartoon series do this time around — will the ratings go up or down? We’ll have to wait and see.

The current season of Family Guy typically airs Sunday nights on the FOX network. Once again, the animated sitcom’s cast includes Seth MacFarlane, Alex Borstein, Mike Henry, Mila Kunis, and Seth Green.

Below are the TV show’s ratings for the 2012-13 season, the best way to tell if Family Guy is going to be cancelled or renewed for future seasons (it’s already been renewed through 2013-14).

These figures will be updated as the weeks progress so be sure to bookmark and return to this page:

Ive been a fan since the first episode. I hope it stays on air forever…. Minus the obvious episodes that only seek contoversy and dont hold my attention for more than 5 mins like jesus mary and joseph and the like. They need to go back to the old ways and stop trying to go soooo big. Family guy is best when your watching just another day in the life of the Griffen family!
