Family Guy MacFarlane: Fox Pulling ‘Colossal Dick Move’

Fox is planning to air an original episode of "Family Guy" this Sunday, without the approval of creator Seth MacFarlane, according to Variety.

"It would just be a colossal dick move if they did that," MacFarlane said Tuesday. He said the next three episodes of the show "are relatively close to completion, but they have not had a final pass."

MacFarlane conceded that the Fox network and 20th Century Fox TV, which produces the show, are "legally within their rights" to complete episodes without his sign-off.

"But they’ve never done anything like this before, in which they’ve said, ‘We’re going to finish a show without you,’ " MacFarlane said. "It’s really going to be unfortunate and damaging to our relationship if they do it."
