Seth MacFarlane hosted Saturday Night Live last night for the series' 38th season. The show began with an Obama Address cold open, which led into MacFarlane's musical and voice-filled opening monologue. Check out the highlight videos ahead, which also include the musical performances by Frank Ocean.
Hot off the success of Ted, and that Family Guy Wheat Thins commercial, which has been around for a while but never seems to get old (much like the Cool hWhip scene by which it's inspired), Seth MacFarlane will do the honors of hosting the 38th season premiere of NBC's long-running sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live.
American Dad, one of the other Seth MacFalane television shows, is up next in Ballroom 20. MacFarlane will be back to lead the panel that includes cast members Wendy Schaal, Scott Grimes, Rachael MacFarlane, Dee Bradley Baker as well as producers Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman.
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.
Having forged an empire out of Family Guy, the show that wouldn't die, Seth MacFarlane has gone on to put the "domination" in Fox's Sunday night Animation Domination line-up. This is the guy with the stones and the pull to reboot The Flintstones. Like him or not, at this point, Seth MacFarlane can do pretty much whatever the hell he wants to. And now he wants to get Star Trek back on the air.
I don't usually care about the Hollywood gossip. However, every now and then there comes a story of a Hollywood encounter between two intelligent and well respected people, that strikes an interested beyond the tabloid. Such is the case during a segment on this evening's Piers Morgan Tonight when guest Seth MacFarlane tells a pretty interesting anecdote about a testy encounter with The Daily Show's Jon Stewart.
After his success/failure/success with Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane's second hit animated comedy to hit Fox Sundays is about to enter its seventh season with no signs of slowing down. The show is about conservative CIA agent and family man, Stan Smith as the titular American Dad trying to take care of his band of misfit family members, which includes a wife, a son, a daughter, an alien and talking fish with German accent. Fox just released a tease for the 'Hot Water' season premiere and it showcases their first guest star of the season
I'm so happy to be the one to bring you constant updates on the goings-on with the roast of actor-turned-warlock Charlie Sheen. Yep, I knew I was put on this Earth for a reason and that reason is to bring you weekly, almost daily, news updates to build anticipation for what is surely to be the roast of the century. Who am I kidding, beneath all this bubbling cynicism and too-coolness, I'm going to end up watching and to their credit, these promos for The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen aren't that bad.
This could be it. I can't imagine Charlie Sheen being able to suck much more out of his meltdown/career yet I also can't imagine a more fitting way for the notorious warlock to go out... like they say, it's better to burn out than to fade away. I'm sure there will be more than enough burning going on with the amount of fodder Sheen has provided for the roasters. It's shooting fish in a fish tank (no one puts fish in barrels anymore... do they?).
He hassled the Hoff. He tormented Trump. And next month, should winning be on his side, Seth MacFarlane will shake things up at the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen. Comedy Central announced that the Family Guy creator would be master of ceremonies at Sheen’s roast next month.
For those who have been watching The Simpsons for the last 20 years, you will be familiar with their practice of bringing in numerous high-profile guest voices throughout the season. It was charming at first, you know, when the show was still relevant and funny. The other Fox animated series quickly followed suit, Family Guy most noticeably, and now the Fox "Animation Domination" guest voice campaign continues and expands, with each of their major shows lining up both some big and small names.
Science has produced a vast array of important discoveries to make our life easier, better, and sometimes just plain more fun. It could be argued that to the average person the 1980 13 part series Cosmos was the most important scientific event since the moon landing.
Just like the back to back Groenings, it's time for the second half of the MacFarlane back to back with the American Dad panel. Let's hope it brings the laughs like Family Guy because I'm still reeling and giddy. I want more MacFarlane!
The animation panels continue in ballroom 20 with Seth MacFarlane's Family Guy. It was briefly canceled by Fox before the stellar DVD sales suggested that their was a pretty big audience for the show. It retuned to the network and continues to run strong after nine seasons, I wonder what they have in store for Season 10?
Remember a few months ago, it was a Monday morning and one of television's biggest stars seemingly went bat-shit crazy out of the blue? Sure he'd had his run-ins with drugs, alcohol and ladies of the evening before but words like warlock and tiger-blood weren't spouting from his lips until that glorious day. Now Charlie Sheen is getting roasted. Too easy?
