Although Family Guy was initially canceled in 2000 due to low ratings, following a last-minute reprieve, the series returned for a third season in 2001.
The series was canceled again in 2002; however, high ratings on Adult Swim and high DVD sales renewed Fox's interest in the series.
Meg just wants to be another face in the crowd by fitting in with her peers and being accepted, but she often finds herself to be a victim of circumstance.
She has had several love interests over the course of the series, including Brian Griffin, Mayor Adam West, Tom Tucker, Glenn Quagmire, and Joe Swanson.
The series returned for a total of 35 new episodes in 2005.
