Family Guy" Coming Back

USA Today reports that over 18 months after the short-lived Fox animated comedy "The Family Guy" was cancelled, the show looks like it might be getting a revival courtesy of its post-airing popularity.

As many as 35 new episodes could return to the small screen in January 2005, which would mark the first time that a cancelled series has ever been revived based on strong DVD sales and syndication ratings.

In fact a recent DVD set containing the show's first 28 episodes has sold almost a million copies, not only making it the highest selling TV show DVD set this year but the No. 4 television title for the format ever. The second set has just passed half a million copies and is still climbing.

Reruns on Cartoon Network are also proving to be the cable providers most popular series among adults.

An official decision will be made in coming weeks and although these sales have "created kind of a groundswell that could lead to better ratings" according to Fox TV head Sandy Grushow, new episodes could end up going directly to Cartoon Network.

every night... right after Futurama (not as good, but better than reality shows).

Notice that the HUGE SALES OF DVD'S seemed to play a part in the (possible) return.

Keep that in mind when the Firefly DVD comes out on Dec 9th
