What is Seth MacFarlane's net worth? If you created just one show that was a smash hit for several seasons on a major network TV channel with DVDs and merchandise then you would die a very happy and VERY rich person. Seth MacFarlane has managed that feat not once but three times with his smash hit shows The Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show all airing on the Fox network. And that's all after Family Guy was canceled by fox in 2001! After the season one DVD sales shattered records Family Guy was brought back in 2005 and has dominated ever since. From 2005-2008 MacFarlane was paid $2 million per year by Fox for his show-running duties. In 2009 he negotiated a 5 year $100 million dollar deal to run his animation empire. And neither of those salary figures include DVD or merchandise rights which are estimated to earn Seth upwards of $20 million additional each year!
That's a lot of money for a talented single guy. Recently Seth paid $13.5 million for a Beverly Hills Mansion where he may have entertained one time girlfriend Eliza Dushku. As MacFarlane, Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Matt Groening prove, there is A TON of money is the animation business! So if one day your kid tells you he wants to grow up and draw cartoons, go out immediately and buy him all the crayons and pencils you can find.
