Seth MacFarlane

I think Seth MacFarlane should do something quirky and irreverent, like design a show that doesn't shove quirky and irreverent down our throats.

Look, whether you like it or hate it, I will admit that Family Guy broke ground. Then there was American Dad, and you could buy the talking fish and the ambiguously gay alien because the guy worked for the government. Now there's The Cleveland Show. It's pretty much a rip-off of Family Guy right down to the talking animal, only now the gags are just becoming cliché and boring.

Perhaps a straight hour and a half of Seth MacFarlane is a bit overkill. Perhaps he should have waited until Family Guy was finished before cloning the formula.
