Popular Seth Macfarlane shows Family Guy and American Dad are officially moving to ITV after the channel purchased the rights to air them and their new upcoming seasons.
The shows, that have been showing on BBC3 for many years now, will officially bow out and air on ITV this Autumn. However the move from the beeb to ITV means they will now have adverts in the middle of them – something we haven’t had to experience when watching on BBC3 in the past!
Both shows – including other Fox family members The Cleveland Show and Bordertown – will air on ITV2 in the evenings. We’re not sure what time, as of yet.
ITV’s director of TV said:
Seth MacFarlane’s shows have firmly established him as the comedy voice of choice for an entire generation.
Seth is sharp, hugely irreverent and brilliantly funny which is reflected in his fantastic shows. We are delighted to be welcoming him and his comic creations to ITV.
