Why Does Seth MacFarlane Hate Dharma And Greg

Has anyone ever wondered why Seth MacFarlane (Creator of Family Guy) hates the tv show “Dharma and Greg”. Seth made many references to the show in Family Guy. For example, “coming up after a new Dharma and Greg (but you don’t have to watch that)” or in viewer mail #1, Stewie stole the laugh box from the set of Dharma and Greg and Brian said, “wow, I’m surprised there is anything left…Wooooohoooooo”. His references were usually indirect, but on the 100th episode, he made a comment about Dharma and Greg and stated that it was just an awful show and then there was at least a 30 second pause.

I don’t know the reason that he hates the show, but I have a hypothesis. It seems that Seth MacFarlane should have been the original part for Greg on the show. Due to contract negotiations, they opted to go with another actor. Seth was angry at the show and took it out on them when he created Family Guy in 1999.

The above image and hypothesis is fake and the image was manipulated on Adobe Photoshop by me.

    Very simple explanation why Seth hates Dharma and Greg: THE SHOW SUCKS. He was probably frustrated that while crappy ass shows like Dharma and Greg were running on tv, his was banned temporarily.

    FAMILY GUY ROCKS!!!!

    Seth MacFarlane hates Dharma and Greg because it’s a horrible show and it’s not funny. And you’re a moron for defending it especially if you’re an adult.
