A CYNOPSIS MESSAGE FROM TWENTIETH TELEVISION


CASH IN ON ANIMATION DOMINATION

Television is enjoying a golden age of animation – and nobody does it better
than Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy and American Dad,
not to mention this year’s biggest new hit, The Cleveland Show.

Proven longevity. Superior repeatability. And hugely popular with young male viewers.
Twentieth’s animation domination is drawing audiences like nothing else in syndication.

FAMILY GUY                 AMERICAN DAD
Renewing now for Fall 2010. Contact your Twentieth Television rep.
