After more than two years of legal wrangling, "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane inked a deal this week with 20th Century Fox TV in the neighborhood of $100 million that will keep the writer- producer at 20th TV through 2012. MacFarlane's come a long way since Fox gave "Family Guy" the boot from its schedule in 2002, only to revive it in 2005 after "Family Guy" DVDs proved to be hot sellers and the network kept canceling its replacements. Of the deal, MacFarlane got right to the point in saying: "I get a lot of pleasure out of making shows. It's a bonus to be getting paid for it, and it's a double bonus to be getting paid exorbitantly for it."
