Seth MacFarlane Net Worth
Seth MacFarlane net worth and salary: Seth MacFarlane is an American producer, writer, voice actor and comedian who has a net worth of $250 million. Seth MacFarlane was born October 26, 1973 in Kent, Connecticut. He is most famous for creating the animated television shows Family Guy and American Dad. He also wrote, directed and produced the 2012 feature film Ted which grossed over $500 million at the worldwide box office as well as the 2015 film Ted 2 which grossed just under $200 million.
Anyone who was lucky enough to create just one hit television shot for a major network TV channel with DVDs and merchandise 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. And that's despite the fact that Fox actually canceled Family Guy 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 additionally each year!
That's a lot of money for a talented single guy. Seth lives in a Beverly Hills mansion that set him back a cool $13.5 million. As MacFarlane, Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Matt Groening prove, there is A TON of money in 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.
