by on December 5, 2008

Entertainment Weekly magazine has put Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane at the #1 spot on its “25 Smartest People on TV” list this year, ahead of Tina Fey (#2), Tyler Perry (#4), Oprah Winfrey (#6), and Hulu.com CEO Jason Kilar (#10). Saying that his “
frat-boy persona is only a cover,” EW states that “Family Guy DVDs and merchandise have pulled in a 
reported $1 billion for 20th 
 Century Fox,” resulting in MacFarlane’s $100 million contract, Family Guy spinoff series The Cleveland Show, and a deal with Google to distribute his Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy.
