Confirms
Suspicions About
The Orville's
Run On Fox
By PAULI POISUO
With "The Orville" heading to Hulu after its run on Fox, it seemed that the network and MacFarlane parted ways amicably, but there's something more bubbling under the surface. MacFarlane had plenty to say during the premiere screening about his sci-fi show's tenure on Fox.
"I want to say, it is an absolute thrill to not be on the Fox network," MacFarlane said before launching into a series of pretty scathing critiques of the network. “Between 'Beat Shazam', 'Name That Tune' and 'Don't Forget the Lyrics!', Fox has really captured the demo of people who have no idea what song they're listening to.”
He concluded by saying, “When I look at Fox's ratings, I gotta hand it to them: It takes a special talent to pander to the lowest common denominator without actually getting them as an audience. That takes talent! But hey, we're here on Hulu, thank God."
