Are you saying Boo or Boo-urns? A review of ‘The Simpsons Guy’

The Simpsons Guy

Deep down, we all knew that a Simpsons-Family Guy crossover was inevitable. Despite the shows' potshots at one another (culminating in a rape / murder joke from Family Guy that pushed me off the show for good, except for when I need background noise) the idea of putting the two together was too much of a cashgrab to deny. And so, a few weeks ago, it came to be ... the Griffins went to Springfield and met the Simpsons during The Simpsons Guy. MORE

Oh yeah, they brought back Brian on ‘Family Guy’

Family Guy

Remember when they killed off Brian Griffin on Family Guy a couple weeks back? Well surprise! They brought him back. Via Us Weekly ... Brian the dog was resurrected from the dead! Or rather, the pup's impending death was prevented via a time machine, traveled by Stewie after the sadistic baby was granted his Christmas wish by a mall Santa during Sunday night's episode. "I mean, you didn't really think we'd kill off Brian, did you?" MacFarlane MORE

‘Family Guy’ fans petition to bring back Brian

Family Guy Brian

As much as I tend to criticize Family Guy, there's always been one aspect of the show that brings me back: Brian Griffin. Essentially serving as Seth MacFarlane's voice among the cast, a lot of the show's best storylines and episodes tend to revolve around Brian (and usually Stewie) because of just how layered they are as characters. Family Guy has never had what I would call the greatest level of respect and care for their characters, but Brian MORE

Fall television’s best & worst new comedies

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

So we are roughly a month into the new TV calendar year and here's a run down of what I’m thinking so far. In general, there has been more shows with promise than in past years, but on the flipside some of the beloved returning shows are starting to show their cracks. On the new comedy show category, here is my breakdown of the good, bad and ugly, and remember, I can watch some really bad TV. BEST NEW COMEDIES Brooklyn Nine-Nine (FOX, MORE

Treehouse of Horror: Guillermo del Toro’s Couch Gag

Treehouse of Horror XXIV

Halloween is coming up soon(ish) which means it is time again for The Simpsons' annual spooky special Treehouse of Horror XXIV (airing this coming Sunday on FOX). Which admittedly doesn't take place in a treehouse anymore, but still, it's a fun one-off episode they do every year, and they tend to go all out for the couch gag. This year, they pulled in director Guillermo del Toro to put together the couch gag, and it's a veritable orgy of classic MORE

Kim Kardashian will be an alien on ‘American Dad’

Kim Kardashian

I may not be a huge fan of Family Guy, but I am an absolute die-hard for American Dad, and will friggin' die on that hill if I have to. It's a show that really came into its own, realized who its characters were, then allowed them to grow and shape the world around them. And now here comes Kim Kardashian to piss all over it. And I mean that literally. She will pee on it. Because that's what she did in her sex tape. Entertainment Weekly reports MORE

Here is a list of ten new shows that have some promise, and others that seem like revamps of shows that already exist. Almost Human (FOX / Premiere: November 4th) Shot in the future, it’s the same old cop show. A cop that lost his leg returns to MORE

Crossover: The Simpsons + Family Guy

The Simpsons + Family Guy

Apparently, the feud between Family Guy and The Simpsons is good and buried, because according to Entertainment Weekly, Fox is working on a crossover special between the two shows. Man, this is even weirder than the time Fran Drescher did something something joke completely unrelated to everything I just wrote because apparently that's how comedy works now. Simpsons castmembers Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith MORE

First Look: ‘The X Factor’ returns!

The X Factor Season Three

Here's your first look at the upcoming third season of The X Factor (via a new promo that just aired this evening), kicking off with a two-night premiere starting on September 11. The first two seasons have been a bit rocky (last season was awful and that's putting it nicely) here in the states, hopefully they finally have it together. Of course Simon Cowell is back, along with the lovely Demi Lovato (the only good thing about last year), and MORE

‘American Dad!’ is moving from FOX to TBS

American Dad

Like Cougar Town before it, the critically-acclaimed but not-as-well-watched American Dad! is moving from a major broadcast network to the basic cable paradise of TBS. See America, this is why we have like five shows about hillbillies putting ketchup on their Kraft Dinner while shows like Parks and Recreation and Community have to basically beg for ratings. The A/V Club reports ... Though it started out as little more than a variation of MORE

‘The Cleveland Show’ might be canceled

The Cleveland Show

Yeah, this is not a good week to be Seth MacFarlane. First there was the trouble with that intentionally altered Family Guy clip, and now the long suffering The Cleveland Show might be getting the axe, according to Entertainment Weekly ... FOX issued a few talking points about The Cleveland Show reports that pretty much reiterate what’s already been out there, though the network put stronger emphasis on the point that no decision has been MORE

Idol: Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban join Mariah and Randy

Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, Ryan Seacrest, Nicki Minaj, and Randy Jackson

The American Idol judging panel has kind of turned into this revolving doors of people who were big in the 90's -- I'm looking at you Paula Abdul, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Mariah Carey. -- so it looks like they finally got around to not only nailing down a judging panel for the season, but also signed on two artists from this era: Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban. E! Online reports ... Country superstar Keith Urban and rapper Nicki Minaj MORE
