Seth Macfarlane, the twisted brain behind Family Guy, American Dad and the new Family Guy Spinoff (The Cleveland Show), just signed a massive deal with 20th Century Fox. When I say massive, I'm not exaggerating. Seriously ridiculous.
Macfarlane is set to make $100 Million between now and 2012 for writing and producing his current animated docket and an upcoming live-action show.
Learn from this people: You too can make an excess of $25 Million a year for coming up with crass humor and weak plots...and this from a fan.
Seth Macfarlane is now the highest paid writer-producer in television, and a lot of people would argue that he's not even very funny.
Funny or not, the man is successful. If nothing else he is a master of raunchy jokes, timing, negotiation and luck.
