Seth MacFarlance will host the 2015 Breakthrough Prize ceremony on National Geographic Channel.
The Breakthrough Prize is an annual awards given to honor the authors of breakthroughs in physics, life sciences and mathematics.

American Dad has turned into a hit for TBS, ranking #1 in its TBS timelsot, so the network has ordered two more seasons of Seth MacFarlane’s dysfunctional Smith family. The renewal is for full 22-episode seasons.
Starz has set the series premiere of Blunt Talk (above) and second season premiere of Survivor’s Remorse for Saturday, August 22nd.
Blunt Talk, about an expatriate Brit talk show host who thinks he’s in America to share his wisdom and wit – but is mostly misguided on all levels – premieres at 9/8C.
Survivor’s Remorse, about a basketball phenom who has gotten out of the ‘hood with a big NBA contract and is trying to not forget his roots while attempting to negotiate the many levels of his new life, follows at 9:30/8:30C.
American Dad is doing so well for TBS that the network has ordered another 22 episodes. So give it up for Stan, Francine, and the rest of the Smith clan – and the CIA! (And misanthropic alien Roger – because not being inclusive is just hurtful!)
To promote the upcoming season of all-new episodes of American Dad, TBS is making a pledge to eliminate those annoying bleeps (or, rather, all but one particular bleep). Check out the teaser for the new season of American Dad after the jump.
Seth MacFarlane plays a guy who gets shot and dumped by his girlfriend on the same day in his Western spoof, A Million Ways to Die in the West. I’m not sure why he thought a Western would be the way to go for his second movie – and the first in which he stars – but it turns out to pretty entertaining for about ninety minutes. Too bad it’s 115 minutes long.
The secret to success behind many of Hollywood’s greatest comes from a great acting coach. Renowned acting coach Aaron McPherson coaches some of Hollywood’s elite, which includes Seth MacFarlane, Matt Bomer, and Dolph Lundgren. Aaron not only taught Seth, but he’s going from teacher to actor in Seth’s new movie “A Million Ways To Die In The West.”
We caught up with Aaron to chat about the making of this film, his experience as an acting coach working with Hollywood’s finest, and a poignant look at “the guy who brought us TED”.
