Advertisements I considered bumping a thread from 2008 when he signed a 100 million contract with Fox, but I don't think it is relevant. Disclaimer: I have no personal awareness and knowledge of any current animated show except what I learn from my teen-age sons, so I speak from complete ignorance. Until recently I confused McFarlane with Trey Parker or Matt Stone. I caught McFarlane on Conan last night and Conan asked him if the rumors are true that Family Guy is going to end. McFarlane said absolutely not. By reading the old thread, I see it was a contract thru 2012, so I see how the rumors got started. My question though is this: They talked last night about McFarlane being nominated for a Grammy....? What is this about? He sings?! Well enough to earn a Grammy nomination?! Learn something new everyday.
