    Seth MacFarlane Moves From 20th Century Fox to NBCU With 5-Year, $200 Million Overall Deal

    Goddamn, wasn't his first deal with FOX some historic figure around that same mark?

    Seth is going to die a billionaire purely on the strength of his wit. Matt Stone and Trey Parker might have won the battle, but it's looking like he's going to win the war.

    Surprisingly, his net worth is only around $300 million now while Matt and Trey are at $500 million each.

    Good for him as long as the Orville doesn't get Star Trek'd. If it does, he can go eat a dick.

    I wonder how much they make on Book of Mormon alone? That thing is a cash cow.

    Parker and Stone are each worth more, so they even win that "War." They win all the battles, wars, imo, of course. I find Seth terribly over rated, and am shocked that NBC would pay that much for his services.

    Does anyone watch his shows anymore? I remember liking Family Guy for maybe a year around 2005 and then it’s just kind of like “oh yeah there’s the formula. Non sequitur followed by uncomfortable pause.”

    I quit family guy a long time ago but continued to watch American dad. Then I stopped watching that a couple of years ago.

    Somehow American Dad is consistently funny

    Family guy just kept getting worse and worse.

    The Orville is on Hulu now?
    That's disappointing, I was looking forward to the new season
    All my dreams get crushed

    So, Seth is going over there... this money he's getting, is to develop new content for NBC?

    Family Guy, American Dad, Orville remain with Fox, and he would continue to work on those shows, as an employee (only) of Fox? Gives up any ownership he may have had in the shows?

    I never thought he was that funny or talented but at the same time he's one of the few Hollywood types who comes off as genuinely humble and doesn't seem to overrate his own talents so I can't help but feel happy for him. He seems to know that Family Guy and American Dad aren't quality art but just massive cash cows. Plus he called out Weinstein all those years ago so he'll be mah :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: forever just for that.

    I'm surprised 20th century fox didn't throw 500 million at him since they have disney money.

    LOL @ NBC

    What a fucking waste of money. But not surprising since they have a long history of choosingb terrible talent and driving their good talent away.

    Choosing Leno over Letterman
    Choosing Leno over Conan
    Choosing Jimmy Fallon over anyone
    Choosing Seth Meyers over anyone

    Didn't Leno dominate Letterman in the ratings?
