'Family' Won't Strike Back

At 'South Park'

For all of you waiting for Seth MacFarlane to retaliate at "South Park" for its two episode diss-fest of "Family Guy" -- it's not gonna happen.

Seth told us he had no plans to fight back at Cartman and crew for knocking his show, because it would be "way too much work."

But he did make one correction to the "South" episodes: "Family" is written by sperm whales, not manatees.
