Seth MacFarlane Rips Fox Over Tucker Carlson, Wants 'Family Guy' On 'Any Other Network'
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is fed up with the misinformation broadcast on Fox News and wishes his iconic TV series aired elsewhere.
MacFarlane, whose show runs on the Fox TV network - part of the same family of companies as Fox News - called on the company through one of its presenters, Tucker Carlson, who has played a major role in spreading conspiracy theories about the coronavirus and COVID -19 -Vaccine as well as the January 6 uprising:
Tucker Carlson's latest comment makes me wish Family Guy were on a different network again. Listen Fox, we both know this marriage is no longer working. Sex is only once a year, I don't get along with your mom and well ... I'm having an affair with NBC.

"Family Guy" aired on Fox for all 19 seasons of the show and will run at least one more. MacFarlane's crack over NBC related to a $ 200 million deal with the rival network he struck last year.
As Deadline reported, MacFarlane has previously shared his unease about the studio's corporate relationship with Fox News. Last year he spoke about hostess Laura Ingraham.
"I really can't imagine that we would produce content for the same company," he wrote at the time.
In recent years, Carlson's show has increasingly shown extremist rhetoric. In addition to conspiracy theories about the January 6 uprising, the coronavirus pandemic, and COVID-19 vaccines, he has also railed against immigrants, and both he and his guests have spread white nationalist topics of conversation.
