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 Arif Zahir. 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 19 Ratings
The 19th season of Family Guy averages a 0.45 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.32 million viewers. Compared to season 18, that’s down by 20% in the demo and down by 14% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled. Find out how Family Guy stacks up against other FOX TV shows.
Note: There’s a disparity in the season numbers of this show. In FOX’s press materials, this is designated as season 19. But, if you look at FOX’s website, they label the same episodes as season 20. Since the press materials are theoretically more official, we follow the press release numbering.
There’s no need to worry about Family Guy being cancelled right now since it’s already been renewed for a 20th season (2022-23) on FOX. How long will this comedy run on the network?
