* WriteWhatYouKnow: One of the main reasons [=MacFarlane=] chose to make ''Family Guy'' a series was the fact that, up until the late 1990s, there was little to no TV shows that took place in the New England states.
* XMeetsY: Seth [=MacFarlane=] is what happens when you mix Michael Buble's crooner-style singing with Creator/JohnKricfalusi's notoriety (or Frank Sinatra's crooner style with a cruder, nastier version of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera).

* AdoredByTheNetwork: Ever since ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' ended after 12 years on the air and ''WesternAnimation/SitDownShutUp'' flopped so badly that it was canceled after four episodes (along with other animated shows that got the shaft after a short run, like ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory''[[note]]even though viewer and critic opinion of the show is that it sucks and should not have been made[[/note]] and an animated version of ''WesternAnimation/NapoleonDynamite'' [[WereStillRelevantDammit that came five years too late]]), the Sunday night "Animation Domination" line-up is mostly made up of Creator/SethMacFarlane's cartoons (even with ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' canceled, there's still ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', though as of the 2014-2015 season, ''Family Guy'' is going to be the only one left because ''American Dad'' is moving to Creator/{{TBS}}). Currently, the only cartoons that aren't created by Creator/SethMacFarlane on the "Animation Domination" line-up are ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'', the reboot of ''WesternAnimation/GolanTheInsatiable'', and the new animated series ''Bordertown'', which is technically Mark Hentamenn's [[note]]Mark Hentamenn was a writer and producer of ''Family Guy'' in its pre-2002 cancellation days and was the man behind the short-lived MTV animated show ''3 South'', about a Harvard-bound college student who ends up in Barder College, the most corrupt, anti-intellectual college in the country after Harvard reaches its quota of white males[[/note]] creation though [=MacFarlane=] has a producer credit on the show.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: ''Family Guy'' was subjected to this back in the late 1990s/early 2000s. ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' has been this way as well, especially ever since ''Family Guy'' was UnCancelled (''Family Guy'' even has jokes about ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' being nigh-unknown, such as Peter referring to the show as "...whatever FOX is limping to the barn with," and in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', Brian Griffin stares at Stan and scoffs, "Do I know you?"). Amazingly, ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' wasn't subjected to this treatment, despite the fact that most Creator/SethMacFarlane fans don't care much for this show -- however, on April 2013, Fox still cancelled the due to low ratings and the popularity of ''Series/BobsBurgers''.
