Wrong Sounding Family Guy
According to this report, Fox is preparing to produce Family Guy episodes without Seth MacFarlane. MacFarlane is currently on strike with the WGA and Fox is not going to wait for him to return to work. They're going to complete the episodes that were already in production before MacFarlane left. After that, who knows? They have the right to create episodes without any of MacFarlane's involvement. Besides being the show runner MacFarlane voices a sizeable number of characters on the show including Peter, Brian, Stewie, Quagmire, Tom Tucker, and Mr. Pewterschmidt. He would have to be recast, presumably by more than one actor. This could ruin the show forever, like when Jim Henson died.
