BREAKING: Seth MacFarlane to take over The Simpsons

Simpsons News — Posted 01 Apr, 2010 by Scott

Note: this was an April Fool's Day 2010 joke, it is not real news.
We've just got word that the creator of the much-loved Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane, has been signed on to The Simpsons as the new showrunner. He will replace current showrunner of nine years, Al Jean, for the next production run of episodes, which will begin airing around the middle of next Season (the 22nd).

MacFarlane, who also created American Dad, The Cleveland Show and the upcoming Suburban Family Time, said of the role, It's a dream come true - the Simpsons is my absolute favorite show. As you can see from my shows, they are just poor imitations of The Simpsons' brand of wacky humor, panda rape gags and jockey elves.

Could Peter Griffin be appearing at Moe's in an upcoming episode?
MacFarlane did not rule out the possibility of a crossover episode. Oh yeah, a crossover would be inevitable. We've had characters from American Dad popping up in Family Guy. I'm throwing around some ideas for Homer and Peter having a drinking contest at Moe's.

We'll keep you posted on any upcoming developments.
