What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the FOX television network, Family Guy stars voice actors Seth MacFarlane, Alex Borstein, Mila Kunis, Seth Green, Patrick Warburton, and Mike Henry. The series follows stereotypical sitcom dad Peter Griffin (MacFarlane). Overweight and a bit dim, Peter is close to his family but is also a heavy drinker. A piano teacher, wife Lois (Borstein) is a stay-at-home mother and usually ends up being the impatient voice of reason. An outcast at school, 18-year-old Meg (Kunis) is the family’s preferred dumping ground. Overweight like his dad, 13-year-old Chris (Green) is socially awkward and clueless, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. The baby of the family, one-year-old Stewie (MacFarlane) is diabolically clever, if sexually confused. Rounding out the Griffin family is their talking dog, Brian (MacFarlane). A ladies’ man who is particularly devoted to Lois, Brian is about one step away from AA.
Season 17 Ratings
The 17th season of Family Guy averaged a 0.71 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.80 million viewers. Compared to season 16, that’s down by 31% and 25%, respectively. Find out how Family Guy stacks up against other FOX TV shows.
I am sure that Family Guy will be renewed for an 18th season but, since the series is now owned by Disney, I wonder if the show will end up moving to ABC or another Disney-owned channel at some point. I’ll keep an eye on the ratings and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on Family Guy cancellation or renewal news.
*Update: FOX ordered episodes of Family Guy for an 18th production cycle KACX (FG-18). This will give the series enough installments for season 18 for the 2020-21 broadcast season, and possibly beyond.
