* AuthorsSavingThrow: Like quite a few creators, [=MacFarlane=] angered the Reddit fanbase by doing an AMA and [[FandomBerserkButton trying to limit questions to his new project]]. Unlike others who've done this (''Creator/WoodyHarrelson'' jokes were [[IncrediblyLamePun rampant]]) Seth apologized for the misunderstanding and rebooted the thread.

He is the executive producer for ''Series/CosmosASpacetimeOdyssey'', hosted by UsefulNotes/NeilDeGrasseTyson. [[PlayingAgainstType However that makes sense.]] His next project is the upcoming live action TV series ''Series/TheOrville''.

In an odd twist of fate, [=MacFarlane=] was scheduled to fly on one of the planes that hit the World Trade Center, but missed his flight due to a hangover and his agent screwing up his flight plan. He decided to wait for another flight, until he saw the news footage of the World Trade Center being destroyed and realized that [[FridgeHorror that could have been him]] (in an even odder twist, his ''Ted'' co-star Creator/MarkWahlberg was ''also'' supposed to be on that very same flight). He vowed never to make 9/11 jokes on his shows because of this, but, after a while, the vow was broken and some slipped through (''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' was originally created as a reflection of the post-9/11 world, which was rife with overzealous patriotism, the desperate need to be safe [even if it means encroaching on others' rights], and claims that the media and the government is paralyzing people into fearing for their lives).

No relation to Todd [=MacFarlane=].

** Granted he voices the main characters in WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy and WesternAnimation/AmericanDad anyways, the spotlight stealing squad of Stewie and Brian on Family Guy, and Roger on American Dad were incidental. And the only character he voices on WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow is far removed from this trope

* AuthorAppeal: A lot of things that Seth likes make it into his shows (music from the Creator/RatPack era, 70's-80's pop culture, musicals/showtunes, ''StarWars'', ''Franchise/StarTrek'', sci-fi, etc). This carried over to his 2013 stint hosting the Oscars, as his opening monologue/musical number included a cameo by WilliamShatner as Captain Kirk.
