Stewie Griffin

Seth MacFarlane Calls Leno's Boss As Stewie Griffin With a List of Demands (VIDEO)

Seth MacFarlane, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'After helping 'The Voice' become a huge hit for NBC, Paul Telegdy was promoted to president of alternative and late-night programming early this month. This put him over 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), which gave guest Seth MacFarlane an idea.

He called up Telegdy as Stewie Griffin with a list of demands on behalf of the network's "number one talent," Jay Leno.

"Jay would like a handicapped parking pass, and I think he genuinely qualifies because of the jaw situation," MacFarlane said. Other demands included car-on-car porn and for Telegdy to convince more newspapers to flub their headlines.

To Telegdy's credit, he hung in through the whole bit and even got in a few jokes himself, like finding it hard to argue with classifying Leno as handicapped due to his chin.

Brian and Stewie Are Trapped on 'Family Guy' (VIDEO)

Brian and Stewie Are Trapped on 'Family Guy'It's the 150th episode of 'Family Guy' (Sun., 9PM ET on Fox). On the very special episode, Brian and Stewie Griffin end up trapped together in a bank vault. Spending so much enforced time together makes the two characters realize they don't really hate each other after all. In fact, they might kind of love one another.

Stewie really, really wants to win an Emmy

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 19th 2009 10:30AM
This web-only video below is part of the "Where's My Emmy?" campaign to convince people to vote for Family Guy. It starts out funny (with a joke or two about The Office) but then turns really unfunny when Stewie starts to beat up Brian.

Stewie Griffin? Gay

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 13th 2009 4:25PM
StewieWell, it's official: Family Guy's little mastermind is gay.

There have been lots and lots of hints about Stewie Griffin, but in an interview with Playboy (I read it for the articles - and also the pictures of naked women), creator Seth MacFarlane reveals that yup, the little one is gay. In fact, they had an episode written where Stewie comes out after a problem at school, but decided not to go any further because it's "better to keep it vague."

In other Family Guy news for this season, Lois finds out she's Jewish, and Rush Limbaugh and Karl Rove will make guest voice appearances on the show.

Was anybody else disappointed in the Star Trek/Family Guy episode?

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 30th 2009 1:16AM
Star Trek on Family GuyI made it my business to catch the episode of Family Guy which guest-voiced the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and I have to say I was somewhat disappointed.

Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed some parts of the episode. The "shut up Wil" line by Patrick Stewart had me in stitches, as well as the sudden death of Denise Crosby (obviously, the writers are ST:TNG fans). Hell, Patrick Stewart is a recurring guest on Seth McFarlane's other series American Dad.

It just seemed to me that after the brilliant Star Wars parody from last year, they would do something more with such a line-up of talent than simply "Stewie gets to hang out and go bowling with the cast." It was even relegated to the "B" plot, with the "A" plot being Meg's sudden faith in God as a result of watching Kirk Cameron on TV.

I was hoping for something more akin to an episode of The Next Generation done Family Guy-style. Or would that have been redundant of the Star Wars episode? What do you think? Was the episode decent or could it have used improvement?

Family Guy: Play it Again, Brian - VIDEO

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 3rd 2008 12:02AM
Family Guy(S06E10) Lois, Peter and Brian take a vacation to Martha's Vineyard. Peter drinks up a storm and Brian confesses his love for Lois. Hilarity ensues.

Seth McFarlane shows his Massachusetts background in this episode (his parents are from there). I saw references to Boston Harbor (the John Hancock building was in the background) and Six Flags New England (which is very close to Connecticut, the state where he was raised).

The show continues to explore Brian's artistic tendencies as he wins a writing award (we later learn the piece he wrote was mostly plagiarized). It's debatable if this is better or worse than the time he was a porn director.

Family Guy: McStroke

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 14th 2008 9:42AM
Family Guy(S06E08) In a mild parody of the movie Super Size Me, Peter suffers a stroke after eating too many fast-food hamburgers. Meanwhile, Stewie becomes the most popular student at James Woods High School, despite being a baby.

Family Guy has such potential to be an original and funny series and so much of it is wasted. I saw hints of really good ideas in the episode but those were superseded by some hack writing and poorly executed material. Another reason to loathe the WGA Strike.

Spoilers after the jump.

Family Guy: Lois Kills Stewie (Part 2)

by Brad Trechak, posted Nov 11th 2007 10:42PM
Family Guy(S06E05) Lois has realized that she has given birth to a monster and knows what she has to do to resolve it. The world needs more mothers who take responsibility like this.

I never liked episodes which end up saying "the whole episode you just watched never happened", but the nice thing about Family Guy is its tendency to call itself out on its own crap before the viewer can. I believe Brian described it best when he called it giving the audience a giant middle finger.

Family Guy: Road to Rupert

Stewie Griffin - Family Guy(S05E09) For the first time in a month and a half, we finally have a new Family Guy. I'm not sure I understand the thought process behind the programming at Fox, but the bright side is it means we'll have plenty of new episodes for the second half of the season.

The FG team went back to familiar territory this week, bringing us another "Road to..." episode. If you close your eyes really tight, you can almost see the eventual special edition DVD commercial. Like "Road to Rhode Island" and "Road to Europe" before it, this one was split into two separate stories that had virtually nothing to do with each other. And also like those that came before, I preferred the Stewie and Brian story.

Tom: Well, Diane, I'm sure you and your brother must be devastated by the loss of the two-headed offspring that might have been. 

Hey, Bob's cable is out so I told him I'd cover this week's Family Guy review. If you want to fantasize about Bob while reading this I won't be offended. Okay, let's get to it:

Family Guy gets fuzzy

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 20th 2006 11:37AM
get fuzzyMost readers know I'm a lover of comic strips both new and old, and when I say "most readers" I mean those readers who are able to read my mind since I don't think I've ever mentioned it before. Anyway, one of the best comic strips out there is "Get Fuzzy" by Darby Conley. If you caught yesterday's strip, you might have noticed Robert's T-shirt features a familiar face. Yep, that's Stewie Griffin's flaming head gracing Rob's torso. Now if only they'd make an animated series based on "Get Fuzzy." That would be, in the words of Peter Griffin, "freakin' sweet."

FOX plans to air Family Guy DVD

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 24th 2005 12:46PM
family guyNext spring FOX plans on airing the recent Family Guy DVD. Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story was released back on September 27th, but FOX believes there is still some worth in televising the DVD months after it hit store shelves. The episodes, when aired, will be split into three parts, which is how they are pieced together on the DVD. It tells the story of Stewie's search for his real father. When FOX begins to air promos for these "episodes" next spring, there will be little to no reference that they are indeed being drawn from the DVD. I don't really see a problem with this; I mean, it is Family Guy, which people are going to watch no matter what... even if this does seem a little backwards going from DVD to TV and not the other way around.
