MacFarlane Toons Into $100 Million Deal...

Emmy Award-winning writer/producer/performer Seth "Family Guy" MacFarlane has signed a deal with 20th Century Fox TV worth more than $100 million, encompassing new-media projects related to MacFarlane's animated TV series "Family Guy", "American Dad" and the upcoming "Cleveland", as well as DVD and merchandising revenue.

MacFarlane recently appeared in Vancouver as host of "The Elan" Video Game Awards. Thanks to Michael Stevens, shooter @ SneakPeekTV, here are the exclusive video highlights from that show:
