Seth MacFarlane continues to hold the attention of audiences everywhere.
While walking the streets of New York with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, co-writers of "Ted", the "Family Guy" creator was asked by the paparazzi about the likelihood of a sequel.
"We're thinking about it," MacFarlane told TMZ's cameras as a response to make another raunchy comedy starring a foul mouthed living teddy bear.

The movie "Ted" became a summer hit with Mark Wahlberg and actress Mila Kunis. The film topped the box office in its opening weekend, bringing in a respectable $54.4 million. To date, Ted has notched worldwide grosses of $406.4 million.
MacFarlane's comment echoes Steve Burke, CEO of NBCUniversal, who later said, "We'd like to see a Ted 2 as soon as we can." Zap2it reports that Burke's announcement to green-light a follow up to the mega-hit comedy was made at the Bank of America Merril Lynch 2012 Media, Communications & Technology conference. This means that the first step of getting the heads of the studio interested is complete. However, the cast, filmmakers, storyline, production schedules and a release date have yet to be established.
Earlier this weekend MacFarlane appeared as the host of "Saturday Night Live", bringing in respectable ratings for the NBC series 38th season opening show. McFarlane made headlines making fun of Olympic gold medal swimmer Ryan Lochte. "If you hold your ear up to my ear, you can hear the ocean," MacFarlane as Lochte said.
Lochte responded to "Celebuzz" saying, "I gotta admit that was a pretty harsh one, but it's cool to have Seth parody me." He went on to say: "I think he pegged me wrong, but when I heard he did a skit I knew I was in for it! It's all in fun and of course if I'm talked about on SNL I know they are gonna get me "Go-od." (The final line was a reference to MacFarlane's joke about Lochte mispronouncing NBC's Go On as "Goon.")
