* A very sad Meta example: Seth has said he WANTS to end the show, but Fox won't let him, since it's such a CashCowFranchise and [[Main/CorruptCorporateExecutive Fox wants to milk it for all it's worth]], just like ''The Simpsons''. This has led to him purposely making episodes has outrageous and cruel as possible. Problem is, though, that millennials seem to love this sadist humor (which also seems to be the reason ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' is so popular). To go from legendary episodes like "Road to Rhode Island", "Death has a Shadow", and "North by North Quahog" to being trapped on your own show and wanting it just to end.... You can't help but feel for Seth and at the same time, all too easily, realize that the decline of the show, in some capacity, was Seth [=MacFarlane=] just trying to get the show cancelled.
