Fox's planned holiday-themed block of animated comedy last Sunday was partially postponed. In the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, the network decided not to air the previously scheduled episodes of American Dad and Family Guy due to sensitive content. Fox has since rescheduled Family Guy's Christmas episode, and has a new episode of American Dad to air, but it's not the holiday episode.
Tonight's Animation Domination line-up at Fox has changed in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown Connecticut. As of Friday morning, Fox had a Christmas episode planned for American Dad and Family Guy, in addition to Cleveland Show and Bob's Burgers. But in the wake of the tragedy, they've pulled the Family Guy and American Dad episodes.
Fox's Animation Domination Sunday night line-up will be getting into the holiday spirit this weekend. Fox released a teaser for the animated comedy block and it appears that all of The Simpsons will be airing holiday installments on Sunday night.
Earlier this month, we learned that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane crashed a class at UCLA to talk about his work for an episode of mtvU's Stand In. The episode is set to air next week, and we now have a preview for MacFarlane's appearance, which has him doing the voice of one of his most popular characters
Fox has ordered its first new animated series in 2 years, from Jason Ruiz and former Family Guy executive producer and co-showrunner David Goodman. Murder Police has earned a 13-episode first season order from the network that is home to history’s longest running primetime animated series, The Simpsons.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph! It's almost Christmas! With Thanksgiving having past, we're now headed toward the holiday season, and for TV, that means special holiday-themed episodes. Family Guy is no exception to that. We have some photos from this year's Christmas episode, which shows the Griffins pulled from their usual setting and recast in some classic roles.
This Sunday is a big night for Family Guy. Seth MacFarlane's animated Fox comedy series will celebrate its 200th episode with "Yug Ylimaf." Fox released a trailer for this Sunday night's hyped installment, and it includes some very bizarre scenarios involving time travel.
Looking back, it's almost hard to remember or believe that Fox once cancelled Family Guy. Seth MacFarlane's beloved animated comedy was cancelled after its third season back in 2001, and was then uncancelled in 2004 after DVD sales and solid ratings for reruns of the series at Adult Swim showed the network the series' potential. Family Guy is in its eleventh season at Fox and next month, it will air its 200th episode.
"This year, Halloween falls on the scariest night ever," Fox's Animation Domination promo announces. "Sunday, October 7th!" Yes, it appears Fox has rescheduled Halloween, at least for the purposes of their scary-funny line-up of animated shows lined up for this Sunday night. That includes the annual Simpsons "Treehouse of Horror" installment.
Family Guy Volume Ten will come with fourteen episodes and plenty of bonus features when it hits DVD next week. If you’re into plenty of deleted scenes and commentary, the set may be right up your alley. You can check out the full list of specs, below.
Things seem to be going actress Sofia Vergara's way these days. The Colombian actress recently topped Forbes' list of 2012 Higest Paid TV actresses. Between her movie roles, her various endorsement deals, the management company she co-owns, not to mention a steady gig on ABC's Modern Family, she's not doing so bad for herself, and it looks like she'll be adding guest-starring on two of Fox's animated comedy series to her resume.
It looks like Ryan Reynolds is going to be getting into the holiday spirit on Family Guy later this year. Word is, the actor, who made a cameo on the Fox comedy series in the past, is returning to the show, only this time, he won't be playing himself. Things are getting biblical for this part, though it sounds like his role involves a character that may not have actually made it into the bible.
Family Guy has found a huge audience since its return to Fox and had one of the funniest panels of all of Comic-Con last year. Fortunately pretty much the same people are back including voice actors Alex Bornstein, Mila Kunis, Seth Green, Mike Henry and, of course, creator Seth MacFarlane.
Family Guy is known for being crass, crude, and entirely inappropriate in its humor, but it seems the show’s producers may have gone a little too far this time – and not on the show itself. The Emmy mailers sent out this year seem to have struck something other than the funny bone in those who received them. Are they just being sensitive, or did the show cross a line?
It’s been a busy time for Fox, with the new series pickups and renewals of comedies and dramas…but what about one of the genres that made Fox famous? Fox has several big animated series, perhaps none bigger than The Simpsons, which was renewed for two years a while back. This week they renewed two of their three Seth MacFarlane shows, but one hasn’t earned another season just yet.
