On Family Guy, Peter Griffin and his family and friends continue to have crazy mishaps in the Rhode Island town of Quahog. The voice cast includes Seth MacFarlane, Alex Borstein, Seth Green, Mila Kunis, and Mike Henry.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
