Family Guy: Meet The Quagmires

the quagmires - family guy

(S05E18) And so ends a short, inconsistent, Family Guy season. I don't know if we should chalk it up to Seth MacFarlane being spread too thin with American Dad and The Winner to watch over, or just the show coming up on 100 episodes. Something just wasn't quite right at Family Guy HQ this season though.

Here's a list of shows that might not come back this fall

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 12th 2007 6:20PM

JerichoFor those are you who worry a lot and get all nervous, you might want to skip this story.

Variety has a list of the TV shows that are "on the bubble," the ones that are teetering on the edge of cancellation and might not make it to fall '07. The list includes a few shows that I thought were actually doing well, and that scares me a bit (and ticks me off).

ABC: The Nine and Knights of Prosperity are probably gone, and What About Brian is on the edge too, despite getting a second life a few months ago.

Family guy starts web-only episodes - VIDEO

by Brad Linder, posted Mar 4th 2007 8:07PM
Up LateBrian and Stewie Griffin's talk show Up Late is on the air... if you consider MySpace to be the air. Up Late with Stewie and Brian is an online-only spinoff of Family Guy, featuring everybody's favorite animated characters who wouldn't be able to talk in a live-action version of the TV show.

The first 10-minute episode includes an interview with Rob Corddry, who conveniently has a new TV show (The Winner) to hawk. And the show just happens to be on Fox, the same network as Family Guy. By some strange coincidence, Fox also owns MySpace. What are the odds? Did I mention that The Winner is produced by Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane and writer Ricky Blitt?

The Winner - an early look

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 2nd 2007 6:39PM
The Winner castWhen I was in college, FOX aired a show called Get a Life. In it, Chris Elliot played a 30-year-old paperboy who lived with his exasperated parents and just refused to grow up. It was a weird little show, but it had its moments.

If you were a fan of that show, you'll like The Winner. Think of it as a less-creepy version of Elliot's show, with just as many funny moments. And for those funny moments, you can thank Rob Corddry.

The former Daily Show correspondent stars as Glen Abbott, who is currently the richest man in Buffalo, but in this show, he looks back fondly at 1994, when he came of age... at 32. Yes, the voice over method is a bit of a takeoff of The Wonder Years, but the show isn't really a parody of that.

What to Watch Feb. 26 - March 4

by Kelly Woo, posted Feb 26th 2007 11:24AM

The Black Donnellys (Mon., 10PM, NBC) series premiere
There are no original ideas in the movies -- everything's a sequel, prequel or "re-imagining." So, it's no surprise that this new show from Oscar-winning movie producers Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco (Crash) tries to be an Irish version of The Sopranos. The Donnellys comprise four brothers: hothead Jimmy, gambling Kevin, artistic Tommy and baby Sean. When Jimmy kidnaps Kevin's bookie, the brothers find themselves facing off against the Italian mob.

Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? (Tue., 9:30PM, Fox) series premiere
Class is in session! Reality TV maestro Mark Burnett presents this new game show that tests just how much adults have forgotten since their elementary school days. Over three days this week, host Jeff Foxworthy will asks questions about everything from math to grammer to American history. And instead of using a lifeline or asking the mob, contestants can turn to some pint-sized experts: a group of real fifth graders.
