Petition Against Family Guy CancellationFamily Guy might have been one of the greatest comedy shows. But did you know that it survived two cancellations?

The first cancellation was in 2000.

For the past 2 years, Fox moved the time slot of Family Guy. Sometimes putting it opposite other popular shows such as Friends.

Thus, the ratings dwindled down.

At the last minute, Fox renewed the show, then cancelled it again.

Distraught fans made a petition to bring the show back on air. In fact, the petition reached more than 100,000 signatures.

One fan observed the delivery of a hundred packages of diapers for Stewie to the Fox studios. The diapers came with a few of the petitions.

Note: Fox donated the diapers to local shelters.

#10: A multi-billion dollar franchise

Cartoon Network bought the rights for reruns of Family Guy from Fox. The show premiered on Adult Swim in 2003.

Family Guy’s viewers followed the show to Cartoon Network. There the show flourished on its time slot.

In the same year, Fox sold the first 28 episodes on DVDs. The DVD sales skyrocketed, selling more than 2.5 million copies.

This was the best-selling DVD of 2003.

Because of this, Fox offered MacFarlane to put the show back into production. This was unusual, because this had never happened before.

In addition, Fox ordered 35 episodes. This was again unusual, because the typical is 22 episodes.

Lastly, Fox put Family Guy in the Sunday at 9 time slot.

Family Guy was on its way to becoming a multi-billion dollar franchise.
