    Im sure Seth will bring his fresh comedy stylings to what is sure to be a new genre for him: An animated sitcom about a blue collar husband, his nagging wife, frustrating children, pet of above-natural intelligence, and best friend with irritating habits.

    Indeed.

    I would love it if people would stop giving him money to be "funny".

    How is Seth Macfarlane going to cram countless Indiana Jones & Back to the Future references into something set in prehistoric times?

    I don't know, but $5 says we get a joke involving Tyrannosaurus Sex.

    On the bright side, at least they haven't given him a show that was actually funny in the first place.

    There is no way this is going to end well.

    Man, I miss the days when Family Guy was that really good cartoon from the late 90s that got cancelled too soon.

    How? How does Seth MacFarlane keep getting to do new shows? Ugh.

    Hopefully just once, and not every 5 minutes in every episode....

    Nah, the every 5 minute joke will just be the Quagmire-type character having a field day with perverted usages of words and phrases that include bone.

    Dude's not funny. I loathe the thought of seeing him recreate the Flintstones to be as crass and vulgar as everything else he touches.

    The more I think about this, the more I have to wonder how much will Warner Bros. actually let him get away with.

    And people continue to mistake Seth MacFarlane for somebody with talent.

    I don't even need to post my thoughts.
    The OP posted them for me :lol 

    EDIT: I think the only positive is that there isn't a teenage girl in the main cast...
