Yup. Thursday's episode determined Family Guy's faith. Ratings have been extremely low for the longest time and Fox gave it up. They are going to show three reruns and then take it off the air. I checked many Family Guy websites and the official message board and it was confirmed. I'll miss you, Family Guy. You were truly a great show   frown

So long, jerkwads!

The ratings for last Thursday was 2.5/5

That's the lowest in Family Guy history. I love the show to death and I'll miss it dearly. It was a very clever show.

Meh, I never really watched it. Only if I found it on when I was flipping through channels.  It was an ok show, too bad its gone though.

Now that Family Guy is killed off, let's channel some of that $$$ into Futurama. Okay, Fox? Answer me, dammit!! I guess they can't hear me. [sigh]

I've seen Nielsen ratings for family guy's last ep from 2.5 (nina) 3.5 (mediaweek.com) and 2.9(thefamilyguy.com).
As long as not even that is sorted out or a legid source is given, I doubt to listen to a fox.com forum post.

I feel sorry for the fans but I'm not that bothered, I only watched it when nothing else was on & I don't enjoy it any where near as much as Futurama or The Simpsons. I hope that Fox aer'nt going to be rash & drop Futurama soon aswell.

*Crosses his fingers* Please renew Futurama for Season 5!

I never went out of my way to watch it and I,m not exactly mourning its death.Maybe It'll show FOX to make original shows and not rip-offs of successful shows.

They did put Family Guy in a very tough timeslot.  Right up against Thursday Primetime blood bath that is Friends and Survivor: Africa.  Sheesh FOX what did you expect?

If the ratings were low, it's because it was so hard to predict when their next new episode was. People, like me, want stability with timeslots. Baby Blues, Dilbert and God, the Devil died. Animation is where FOX is at!

NOOOOOO!!!!!

those of you who are bizzarely happy about Family Guy's demise should be careful what you wish for. Once a network gets an axe in its hand, a show's closest relatives are likely to be it's next victims. Do I make myself clear?

-edit- it's it's it's. I'll put apostrophes' wherever I like you nazi. -edit-

The difference between family guy and futurama is that family guy sucks... When they actually put futurama on, at least it's entertaining. :Keeps on dancing:

Well, lets see. I'm glad that everybody thought it was more or less kick ass. So that proves my point. What does shit me is the fact that I don't have freaking foxtel, so I can't see season 3!!! :angry:I'm going to have to get somebody who has fox to tape it for me.

I'll put it this way, Leela will tower over other characters like "Ren & Stimpy."  And you think the 500-foot tall Bender is impressive.

Family Guy fans, step to the west. Family Guy haters, step to the east. Nurdbot, you'll be our buffer zone. We should have a poll on this.

If anyone is interested FOX is devoting it's entire 2 hour primetime programming to Family Guy repeats tonight (Thursday 1/10/02).

This isn't important enough to open a new thread, but I heard that The Tick got officially cancelled.  cry
