For the last 10 seasons American Dad has been on Fox, but tonight it makes it debut on TBS at 9p.
In honor of the new address, Stan Smith is thinking of moving the family to a gated community. How many moves will The Smiths go through tonight? You just have to tune in.
That and to see Hayley go blond, and it’s all for a good cause.
I think the change is a really good thing for the animated sitcom because they get to do a lot of things they couldn’t do at their old home. For example, they can now use the S word. Will they? You’ll just have to check it out.
Tonight at 9p on Fox The Griffins go to Springfield on the season premiere of Family Guy and it might be one of the best things ever. If you have ever seen any episodes of The Simpsons and Family Guy, then you MUST watch this episode because you are going to love it. Both shows do things that they’ve never done before when they are together, and for years you have wanted to see them do these things but didn’t know it. You get a bad a$$ Homer Simpson and tamer Peter Griffin, and it is just what you needed.
The episode starts off in Quahog and Peter is now a cartoonist for the local paper. When his cartoons offend his neighbors, The Griffins are chased out of town. After traveling all night, they finally stop at gas station. When they come out of the store, someone steals their car with everything in. Now they must walk to the next inhabited area and it is, wait for it, SPRINGFIELD!
The first place they stop at is the Kwik-E-Mart where they meet Apu. He shows them a thing called the doughnut, but they don’t have any money to pay for them. A kind stranger offers to buy them a dozen. That stranger is Homer Simpson and a friendship is sealed with some frosting.
The two families become quick friends and we get two watch their worlds collide. Homer and Peter are like Dumb and Dumber, but even better.
The two men come up with different ways to get The Griffins’ car back and you will see things that can’t be unseen. No matter how hard they try, they can’t find the automobile and looks like The Griffins will be stuck there forever. Which I think would be the best thing ever.
But back to the hour-long special episode. Everything is copacetic between the two men, until… When that moment happens, they will have the greatest chicken fight ever that goes on for almost 10 minutes. It is so epic that you don’t want to miss a single punch.
Actually, you don’t want to miss a single second of this episode. The town of Springfield gets to do things they’ve never done before, and it doesn’t feel wrong. There are so many jokes, guest appearances and so much more, that any fan of The Simpsons will appreciate what the people at Family Guy have done with their time in Springfield.
It is so enjoyable and loveable, that you will wish that Fox cancels Mulaney (this is just one of the many many many many reasons) ASAP and pick up The Simpsons Guy to series. Why can’t they? They seriously need to do it.
Don’t take my word for it, take it from The Simpsons’ Executive Producer Al Jean. On a conference call earlier in the week, he had this to say about the crossover episode “I’ve seen the whole episode, and I loved it. That’s probably my strongest recommendation.” Then he added, “I don’t want to reveal the jokes in it; but I thought it was actually sweet, and it made me laugh multiple, multiple times, so I’m glad it exists. If they sold a DVD of it, I’d buy it.” He isn’t the only one, all of us will want to own the DVD as soon as it comes out. You know, Fox will be rushing this out to the market because loyal fans of both shows will want it tomorrow, if not sooner. So don’t only watch this episode live, DVR it. This way you can watch it over and over again until it is available for us to own.
I seriously can’t praise this episode enough because it is that phenomenal. My hat is off to everyone involved with it because what they did will finally earn them that Emmy they said they have never won.
For some reason Fox cancelled American Dad for, Mulaney, one of the worst comedies I’ve ever seen and turns out it is good thing for the animated sitcom. Seth MacFarlane’s 2nd show is moving to TBS and now he can do things he has never done before. The Smiths can say words like sh!t and bullsh!t, but WTF they still can’t use the word f*ck.
It’s a start and because of these changes I am even more excited for the show’s debut on it’s new network October 20th! How excited are you to finally hear these words coming out of Stan, Francine and Roger’s mouths and not have it sound like bleep and bleep? I am sure Seth, Scott Grimes and the others are looking forward to it as much as we are.
Seth MacFarlane was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon yesterday and he made up review headlines for his new movie A Million Ways to Die in the West that comes out on Friday. Let’s just say the critics weren’t nice. After seeing Ted, is it wrong for me to think his fake headlines are going to be funnier than the movie?
Remember when you were little kid in school; and you learned about the planets in Science and you got all excited? Well that is the feeling you will get watching Cosmos on Fox and Nat Geo tonight and every Sunday at 9p. The 13 part series updates the 1980 Emmy winning PBS series that was hosted by Carl Sagan. Now nearly 35 years later we know so much more about worlds that aren’t our own and our own world, and Neil deGrasse Tyson will educate us something we have forgotten but want to remember.
So sit back and feel like a kid again and if you are kid enjoy learning again via Cosmos.
When Johnny Carson did his last The Tonight Show, Bette Midler serenaded him. Well yesterday when Bill Maher made his last appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, he brought along Seth MacFarlane to serenade him with their version of Thanks for the Memories. They are no Miss Divine, but they were pretty darn close.
When I saw the Dads‘ pilot for the first time, I was not fan. Then I rewatched it and found myself laughing more than once. So I decided to give the show a season pass and I am glad that I did because I have laughed with every episodes since the first one.
Last night’s episode did something that no show or movie has done to me since Stand By Me. Not cry, it made me want to hurl. To rework a great joke told by Bill Cosby, “First you see it, then you do it.” You see Eli (Seth Green) got sick at a restaurant and started to throw up. He threw up on his BFF, Warner (Giovanni Ribisi) who then threw up on him and they went all Exorcist on each other over and over again.
Remember that epic Ipecac scene from Family Guy, well Seth MacFarlane made his animation dream come to life and my dinner to come up.
Since I whole heartedly believe that I should not suffer alone, I am sharing that scene with you from last night’s episode. Hope you enjoy it!
BTW is it wrong that I wish I could’ve been at that taping to see that scene live? I think it would’ve caused the audience to recreate that Stand By Me pie eating contest scene.
Family Guy shocked us all yesterday (different than they normally do), when they killed off the family dog Brian. No one knew (or possibly cared) that it was coming. Now that we know that our favorite talking dog since Scrappy Doo is hanging out at the Rainbow Bridge, we suddenly care.
The once cancelled animated show didn’t even give us time to grieve because they replaced him with a new dog before the episode ended. Peter’s new best friend is named Vinny and I haven’t been this upset about a change since Felicity cut her hair off. The new addition is such a turn off to me that I am thinking of giving up the show.
Hey Seth MacFarlane, is there any way you can do what you did in Ted and bring back Brian? Afterall it is a cartoon and dogs can come back without an issue.
Take note The Simpsons and be careful who you kill off because I think people will feel the same way as I do about the death/replacement of a fan favorite.
So when I watched the pilot for Dads the first time, I hated it. Then I watched it again and found myself actually laughing a lot. So much so that I decided to check out another episode. Well now I find myself watching the show every week and laughing much more than I should. I guess I am not alone because Fox gave the Seth MacFarlane live-action show a full season.
And the news is also good over at Lifetime because even though they tried to kill Drop Dead Diva, they announced today that show will be back for another season. The 13-episode sixth season will air some time next year.
When the screeners went out for Dads, the critics universally hated it. I was one of them who hated everything about it. Then I watched the rest of Fox’s new sitcoms and I realized it was their best new comedy. In fact after a second viewing I found myself actually liking it, so much so I now watch it every week.
Well turns out I am not alone because Fox ordered six more scripts from the freshman show according to Variety. While that doesn’t mean the show will make those episodes, there is a pretty good chance they will. Especially since they cancelled the midseason animated show Murder Police before it even aired, so they are going to need to keep something else on the air to fill the whole.
