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.

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

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: 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.
