The Griffin family will be coming back for the 2019-20 television season. FOX has renewed Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy TV show for season 17 (you’ll see it referred to as season 18 elsewhere). The series hails from 20th Century FOX, where MacFarlane has a deal, which is set to expire later this year.
An animated FOX comedy, Family Guy follows stereotypical sitcom dad Peter Griffin (Seth MacFarlane), his piano teacher wife Lois (Alex Borstein), social outcast 18-year-old daughter Meg (Mila Kunis), awkward 13-year-old Chris (Seth Green), baby Stewie (MacFarlane), and the dog, Brian (MacFarlane), who likes the ladies and his liquor.
Family Guy: A Look at the Ratings
The 16th season of Family Guy is averaging a 1.16 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.67 million viewers. Compared to season 15, that’s up by 2% in the demo and up by 7% in viewership. Find out how Family Guy stacks up against the other FOX TV shows.
Today, FOX also renewed Bob’s Burgers for season 10 and renewed The Simpsons through season 32.
The renewals also come as Fox looks to lock down top talent ahead of the 21st Century Fox-Disney merger. Upon completion of the merger, the Fox broadcast network will be part of the separate Fox Corporation entity that will emerge after the sale. The broadcaster previously ordered two more seasons of “The Simpsons,” making that show, “Family Guy,” and “Bob’s Burgers” the only shows at Fox currently renewed for next season.
