Make room for even more Peter Griffin. FOX has renewed Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy TV show for a 16th season, Deadline reports.
A FOX animated sitcom, Family Guy follows stereotypical sitcom dad Peter Griffin (MacFarlane). Overweight and a bit dim, Peter is close to his family, despite being a heavy drinker. He and his piano-teaching wife, Lois (Alex Borstein), have three kids: outcast 18-year-old Meg (Mila Kunis); awkard 13-year-old Chris (Seth Green); and the diabolically clever one-year-old Stewie. Rounding out the Griffin family is their dipsomaniac dog, Brian (MacFarlane).
Family Guy: A Look at the Ratings
The 15th season of Family Guy is averaging a 1.24 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.752 million viewers. Compared to season 14, that’s down 4% in the demo and about even in viewership. Considering how much money it rakes in in syndication and the relatively low price of animated series, the renewal was pretty much a given. Compare Family Guy‘s ratings to those of the other FOX TV shows.
