'Simpsons' on the Jury for Peter and the Boys on 'Family Guy' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 5th 2011 2:30AM
'Family Guy' - 'Cool Hand Peter'After a fun cameo by 'King of the Hill' on 'The Simpsons' earlier in the night, 'Family Guy' (Sun., 9PM ET on FOX) went for a triple crossover. This time, though, it wasn't exclusively with Seth MacFarlane's other shows. Well, not entirely.

In a rather blatant attempt to remind viewers about 'The Cleveland Show,' Cleveland and Donna both crossed over to Quahog, with Cleveland reuniting with the boys for a road trip adventure. The adventure itself saw them arrested under false charges and tried before a jury of their peers.

"I don't think they see it that way," Joe said after the camera panned across a jury made up entirely of characters from 'The Simpsons.' It's a pretty accurate assessment of the two shows which may share a night and a network, but little else as the people behind making both shows don't seem to get along very well.

The Boys Dress Up as Women to Help With Breast Exams on 'Good Vibes' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 2nd 2011 7:00AM
'Good Vibes' - 'Breast Friends'MTV isn't exactly known for subtlety with its sexual content, and 'Good Vibes' (Thu., 11PM ET on MTV) has certainly pushed that envelope with its perpetually horny protagonists. In this episode alone, they dart off twice to masturbate.

But behind all the dirty jokes was a positive message. When Jeena needed volunteers to help with the free mammogram screening, Mondo and Woodie came up with the brilliant (stupid) idea to dress up as women so they could get hands on.

Unfortunately, they missed any opportunities they might have had to see or feel anything remotely pleasant. They stopped one another when Woodie's sister and Mondo's mom came in, but no one was safe when the kids' teacher rolls in and then her bra lost its battle to contain her breasts.

'Beavis and Butt-Head' Make Fun of Snooki Getting Arrested (VIDEO)

Snooki, 'Beavis and Butt-head'At this point, we're ready for 'Beavis and Butt-head' (Thu., 10PM ET on MTV) to take over a full weekend of broadcasting on MTV. They could talk about the shows 'MST3K'-style, mocking the entire lineup. To make it even better, the network should air a 'Jersey Shore' marathon to give them great material.

Some of the funniest bits so far on the new 'Beavis and Butt-head' have come from them making fun of Snooki and company. This week, they tackled her arrest for drunkenness on the beach, with Butt-head saying, "The cops thought she was a seal."

EXCLUSIVE: 'Supernatural' Gets Animated ... Sort Of

by Laura Prudom, posted Dec 1st 2011 10:00AM
'Supernatural' gets 'Mad'Apologies for the semi-misleading headline, 'Supernatural' fans -- sadly the show is not taking a page out of the 'Fringe' playbook and tackling a psychedelic animated episode; at least, not as far as we know. (Although there's always the anime series.)

But for those of you who take your Winchesters in 3D, 2D and heck, any way you can get them, AOL TV has an exclusive sneak peek at an upcoming 'MAD' episode, featuring Sam and Dean facing one of their most frightening foes yet: a teenage girl celebrating her Super(natural) Sweet Sixteen.

The parody airs next week (Mon., Dec. 5 at 8.30PM ET on Cartoon Network), but you can get a first look at the hilarious skit after the jump. Prepare to learn more than you ever wanted to know about Dean's taste in shoes ...

Peter Goes to War Against the Amish on 'Family Guy' (VIDEO)

'Family Guy' - 'Amish Guy'When Meg found herself falling for an Amish boy, it sparked a feud between his father and Peter on 'Family Guy' (Sun., 9PM ET on FOX). When the Amish father actually did Peter's chores for him, to rob him of the joy, it was time to bring out the big guns.

Unfortunately, Peter learned that as fast as you can blow up a barn, an Amish community can raise another one in its place. Sure, it was one of the more obvious gags, but it was nevertheless funny watching that same footage play over and over again as Peter tried different ways to blow up the barn.

Marge Simpson Finds Herself Getting Seduced in 'Mad Men' Spoof (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 28th 2011 2:30AM
'The Simpsons' - 'The Man in the Blue Flannel Pants'In a spoof of 'Mad Men' so sharp, you'll swear it's 2008, Homer Simpson took a job as an account man for the nuclear power plant on 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX). While it was a charming enough episode, there were no stand-out moments of clever satire or unexpected twists.

That said, we did enjoy the scene where Marge went to confront the man who held the job before Homer. Clearly a Roger Sterling type, we loved how during her conversation, she found herself suddenly sitting on his bed, and then standing outside the shower while he washed up. That's the 'Mad Men' seduction that washes over women so fast they don't even know what happened until it's too late.

Joe and Bonnie are Reunited With Their Son on 'Family Guy' (VIDEO)

'Family Guy'Thanksgiving on 'Family Guy' (Sun., 9PM ET on Fox) brought a happy family reunion for Joe and Bonnie Swanson. They'd been mourning the death of their soldier son Kevin, but he turned out to be alive.

Kevin tells his happy parents that he'd been in a coma ever since his quarters blew up, but a suspicious Joe keeps finding holes in his story and pushes Kevin to admit the whole truth. "I never was in any coma. I bailed. I faked my death and went AWOL." That's when the police officer in Joe takes over: He slaps the cuffs on Kevin and prepares to take him in. Can Bonnie stop him?

Neil Gaiman Wants in on the Teen Book Job on 'The Simpsons' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 21st 2011 6:45AM
Neil Gaiman, 'The Simpsons' - 'The Book Job'It almost feels weird to say this, but in a very clever and entertaining episode of 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX), Homer develops a plan to make a fortune by churning out a tween novel by committee. Popular fantasy author Neil Gaiman played himself, as an existing author wanting in on the scheme.

The entire episode was framed as a heist, with Homer assembling his team, writing the novel and getting it published. The head of the publishing house was in place as the evil villain, while Gaiman proved to be the cleverest of them all, duping everyone by getting the book ultimately published under his own name.

'Super Size Me' and Snooki's List for Finding a Man on 'Beavis and Butt-head' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 18th 2011 6:15AM
'Beavis and Butt-head'The dumbest duo in America took on Morgan Spurlock's 'Super Size Me' in the latest 'Beavis and Butt-head' (Thu., 10PM ET on MTV). Of course, all they knew about him was that he did that documentary and he has a hot wife now. So they decide to eat Burger World for a month to score chicks. They even convinced Mr. Van Driessen that they were doing this to make a point about childhood obesity, and got his support as well as credit in class for eating and getting fat.

It's just crazy that a show that can tackle a serious subject so well, and with humor, is the same place we can see the boys being inspired by Snooki to make a checklist for their ideal woman. Their criteria aren't nearly as strict as hers, or most men. They'd be satisfied with just one breast, for example.

Brian and Stewie Travel Back to 1999 to See the 'Family Guy' Pilot (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 14th 2011 3:00AM
'Family Guy' - 'Back to the Pilot'Originally, this week's episode of 'Family Guy' (Sun., 9PM ET on FOX) was going to be the next installment in the 'Road to...' episodes featuring Brian and Stewie. Instead, Stewie's time machine brought the duo 'Back to the Pilot.'

It was certainly a fun look back at the early animation from 1999, as well as the slightly different voices used for several of the main characters, and of course Lacey Chabert voicing Meg. But it was just too tempting for Brian to alter the past, and when they got back to the present, they discovered he'd single-handedly thwarted the 9/11 attacks.

Unfortunately, this led to a second Civil War, and five years down the road the world is a post-apocalyptic wasteland ... but it's not all bad. Cleveland's back!

Gordon Ramsay Invades Marge's Dream on 'The Simpsons,' Or Is She in His? (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 14th 2011 1:30AM
Gordon Ramsay, 'The Simpsons'Determined to have the kids think of her as a fun parent, too -- they call Homer the "fun dad" -- Marge finds some inroads with the kids when they start exploring unique foods with her. Suddenly, it's a competition to see who's more fun on 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8:30PM ET on FOX).

Marge stressed about it so much, she started getting yelled at in her dream. And who better to yell at a new foodie on FOX than Gordon Ramsay, who told her, "You're not as f****** fun as [Homer] and you never will be!"

Then apparently, he commandeered her dream as his own and forced himself to wake up, though I think that leaves him with the stranger dream. Marge dreamed of a world-famous chef. He dreamed of a strange housewife with crazy tall, blue hair.

Alien Pilgrims From Space on 'South Park' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 10th 2011 9:15AM
'South Park'Holiday time in 'South Park' (Wed., 10PM ET on Comedy Central) is always eventful and more than a little weird. Having been assured that everything they've been told about Native Americans being from space is untrue, the kids are on the couch (natch) as the door is blown open by a pilgrim asking "Why hast thy race sent me to earth?!"

Pretty soon the the kids find themselves mixed up in an ancient feud between alien Pilgrims from space and the Native Americans. Both groups are fighting to control the valuable "stuffing mines."

Of course, this being 'South Park,' it ends in violence, but we do learn a valuable lesson: Alien pilgrims from space have a very nasty test to tell if you're lying about being one-sixteenth Native American.

Lust and Lies on 'Allen Gregory' (VIDEO)

'Allen Gregory' sex tapeIt's hard fitting in when you're the new kid in school, but we're not sure that 'Allen Gregory' (Sun., 8:30PM ET on FOX) is going the right way about it. This week, overcome with lust for Principal Gottlieb, the precocious Allen pretends that he has a sex tape of him and the principal getting it on.

Never mind that Allen's only seven years old and his classmates have basically no idea what he's talking about, he follows through with his plan to the end and destroys the supposed sex tape in front of the class and the principal. Supposedly in order to spare her blushes and save her relationship.

Homer Outsmarts Jane Lynch on 'The Simpsons' (VIDEO)

Jane Lynch, 'The Simpsons'Jane Lynch took off the red track pants last night to guest-star on 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX) as Homer's new assistant, the scheming Roz.

It's rare to see Homer outsmart anyone, but after Rox stole his job at the nuclear power pant he managed to find her one weakness and exploit it to his advantage. It turns out that Roz just hates to be hugged, so who better to have her hug -- in public -- than Monty Burns?

As Mr. Burns wraps his arms around Roz she starts to groan with disgust. Then, losing it altogether she pushes him away, wraps him into a little ball and kicks him into touch. Result? Roz is fired and Homer gets his job back. Plus, Roz even admits to a little grudging respect for Homer: "I underestimated you."

Quagmire Plots to Murder His Sister's Abuser on 'Family Guy' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 31st 2011 6:00AM
'Family Guy' - 'Screams of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q''Family Guy' (Sun., 9PM ET on FOX) got very serious and very dark in their subject matter this week. When Quagmire's sister stopped by to visit, the boys found themselves awkwardly in the middle of her abusive relationship with her boyfriend.

Domestic abuse is a difficult subject to tackle respectfully in comedy, and certainly not one you expect to see on a show like 'Family Guy.' But for all its general ridiculousness, the show did handle this very serious problem with the respect it deserves.

They also provided a fantasy narrative for many people who feel unsure what to do about this very real situation in their lives through Quagmire.
