I'm not sure he even has one anymore lol.
Really? I thought Brian was his regular voice.
I'm just going to say that Seth doesn't have a FULL choice on the matter when it comes to the similarity in setup between shows. When Fox courted Matt Stone and Trey Parker in 1997, they turned down South Park
because they felt comedies should be about families - mind you, the only comedies Fox had in 1997 were The Simpsons
and King of the Hill
, the latter of which had yet to premiere. (That and they hated Mr. Hankey.)
So Seth isn't recycling material completely over his own fault. In fact, I'd say the real problem is his lack of focus - he has three programs on at once, and this multi-focus is hurting his involvement. He only really reads lines for American Dad!
anymore and The Cleveland Show
is really ran by Mike Henry, not Seth. Not to mention, Seth's also making The Flinstones
and TED, so it's obvious his better material isn't going into his existing stuff.
But you'll be pleased to know American Dad!
is probably on it's way out within the next year or two. Fox has been very quiet about it lately. TCS is sticking around and Family Guy I think will end after the current contract - Seth admitted months ago he feels like it should end he's doing a movie and stated a long time ago his desire was to transition Family Guy from television to movies at some point.
