Posted June 30th, 2014 @ 12:07pm

Seth MacFarlane is giving a huge boost to LeVar Burton's fundraising efforts to revive Reading Rainbow. The funnyman has promised to match up to $1 million in pledges made on Burton's Kickstarter page.

Burton's plan is to raise enough money to create an online version of the show that will be available free of charge to classrooms across the country. $5 million is needed, and as of yesterday (Thursday), $4 million has been pledged. MacFarlane says he will match every dollar up to $1 million between now and next Wednesday.
