Seth Macfarlane roasted Fox at the Los Angeles premiere of The Orville: New Horizons, the show’s third season. He began his speech by saying how thrilling it is to no longer be on Fox and how he felt they never belonged there. The show ran for two seasons on Fox before coming to Hulu. The Family Guy creator is known for his sarcasm and could simply be giving Fox his version of a Razzie, but Seth Macfarlane seems happy that the show has a new home. The Orville: New Horizons debuts June 2 on Hulu.

“I want to say, it is an absolute thrill to not be on the Fox network,” the star told the crowd at the event. “We never really belonged there. And they’ve curated a specific brand now. 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.” After pausing for laughter, he quipped, “It’s because they’re not here.”

But MacFarlane wasn’t yet done roasting Fox. “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,” he continued. “That takes talent! But hey, we’re here on Hulu, thank God.”

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
