My whole family’s favorite show is Family Guy.   We even let our 11-year old watch.  If you are one of the few who haven’t seen the show, you must.  It is the funniest most creative show on television.  In fact, you should start watching a lot of TV (if you don’t already) these days as that seems to be where the creativity is.  Just look at how many shows from TV have turned into live events and tours (Glee, Idol, Dancing w/the Stars, X-Games, Hanna Montana, Cheetah Girls, etc)Selena Gomez star of Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place is doing good business in the sheds this summer but paid her dues doing a TV show rather than banging it out on the road.

As a network, Fox seems to be more open to extending their brands off the small screen than others.  But as it relates to Family Guy, all the shots are called by Seth MacFarlane, the show’s creator, writer and star.  Seth is a creative genius who uses animated characters to say things most of us think.  He pushes the envelope and we should all be trying to not just emulate what he is doing, but to get Seth over to the dark side…live entertainment.

In the past, Seth and company have done a few “Family Guy Live” events…but just a few.  They were instant sell-outs.  Trying to get an opening in Seth’s schedule big enough to take a show on the road seems to be nearly impossible based on all the projects he is involved with yet we must try.  We wouldn’t necessarily need him to go on the road as Seth could look at producing new events…although touring “Family Guy Live” is a dream. 

Turn on your TV.  There are ideas everywhere.
