About Me

Me, Myself, and I
The show revolves around the adventures of Peter Griffin, a bumbling but well-intentioned blue-collar worker. Peter is an Irish American Catholic with a thick Rhode Island / Eastern Massachusetts accent. His wife Lois is generally a stay-at-home mother and piano teacher, and has a distinct New York accent from being a member of the Pewterschmidt family of wealthy socialites. Peter and Lois have three children: teenage daughter Meg, who is frequently the butt of jokes for her homeliness and lack of popularity; teenage son Chris, who is overweight, unintelligent and, in many respects, a younger version of his father; and infant son Stewie, a diabolical child with adult mannerisms who speaks fluently with an upper-class English accent and stereotypical arch-villain phrases. Living with the family is Brian, the family dog, who is highly anthropomorphized, walks on two legs, drinks Martinis, and engages in human conversation, though he is still considered a pet in many respects.

There are many recurring characters on the show who appear alongside the Griffin family on a regular basis. These include the family's colorful neighbors: sex-crazed airline-pilot bachelor Glenn Quagmire; mild-mannered deli owner Cleveland Brown and his wife (ex-wife as of the fourth-season episode "The Cleveland–Loretta Quagmire") Loretta Brown with their hyperactive son, Cleveland Jr.; paraplegic police officer Joe Swanson and his perpetually pregnant wife Bonnie; and creepy old gay pedophile Herbert. TV news anchors Tom Tucker and Diane Simmons also make regular appearances (along with Asian Reporter Tricia Takanawa and Blaccu-Weather meteorologist Ollie Williams), as well as mentally disturbed celebrity Mayor Adam West (voiced by and named after the real Adam West).

Family Guy has not used an especially large cast of recurring minor characters (though this has changed to an extent in Season 4, with many one-shot characters from prior episodes reappearing in new episodes), and most of the episode plotlines center on the exploits of the Griffin family.

  • Fox moves fall to late summer

    Network rolls out big guns in late August; Fringe to follow House, Dollhouse set for midseason.

    Fox was the last of the major networks to unveil its 2008-2009 prime-time schedule, and from the looks of it, it used its position to its advantage.
    <em>Hot Dudes Breaking Out of Prison</em> returns this fall!

    Hot Dudes Breaking Out of Prison returns this fall!

    Though the new most-watched network was last to present its schedule to advertisers in New York City, it looks as though it will be first to show its new programming to viewers. Fox will kick off its season in late August with a week of two-hour premiere events in an effort to build up audiences early, beginning with the debut of Prison Break's fourth season on August 25.

    That is followed the next day by the debut of what Fox hopes will be the next big television hit: J.J. Abrams' new sci-fi action show Fringe. Fringe, one of two new shows in Fox's fall lineup, will get the benefit of following House on Tuesdays, with the Hugh Laurie medical drama moving up to 8 p.m.

    The second new show for the fall is Do Not Disturb, formerly titled The Inn. It will be half of Fox's live-action comedy Wednesday block, which is moving back an hour probably because CBS added an hour of comedy to its lineup on Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
    <em>Robots Trying to Kill John Connor</em> moves up to the fall.

    Robots Trying to Kill John Connor moves up to the fall.

    Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which launched midseason this year, moves up to the fall on Monday nights with Prison Break. Bones is the odd man out, once again leaving its partner House and striking out on its own on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. and leading in to 'Til Death and Do Not Disturb.

    2009 appears exceptionally strong for Fox, and it isn't just because of more American Idol. Joss Whedon's Dollhouse, Fox's other potential smash, will be held until January, where it will be paired with 24 on Monday nights. January will also see the debut of the new reality show Secret Millionaire, which follows rich guys as they help out those less fortunate. Later that spring, Family Guy spin-off The Cleveland Show and Sit Down, Shut Up will join Fox's Sunday animation block.

    Looks like another strong year for Fox. The updated schedule is below.

  • Family Guy's guy now megarich

    Fox signs raunchy cartoon creator Seth MacFarlane to lucrative deal; keeps producer with company through 2012.

    Seth MacFarlane, who no doubt had high-school teachers telling him that his doodles and cartoon voices would amount to nothing, can now tell his guidance counselor to shove it.
    Money.

    Money.

    The cartoon mastermind has finally signed a deal and will be locked up with 20th Century Fox Television through 2012, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The agreement also means that if pretty much anyone (other than Bill Gates) sees MacFarlane at a bar, drinks are on him.

    By signing his name on the dotted line, MacFarlane now lays claim to the title of highest-paid television producer in the business. Depending on the performance of his properties, which include Family Guy, American Dad, and (barring some bonehead decision not to pick it up) the Family Guy spin-off Cleveland, MacFarlane's contract could be worth more than $100 million.

    The deal also keeps MacFarlane on board as producer of live-action comedies and as a voice actor for his shows.

    Never one to mince words, MacFarlane told The Hollywood Reporter: "I get a lot of pleasure out of making shows. It's a bonus to be getting paid well for it, and it's a double bonus to be getting paid exorbitantly for it."

    MacFarlane has had a rocky relationship with Fox in the past, seeing Family Guy canceled and then resurrected after DVD sales went through the roof. He was also at odds with his bosses during the writers strike, during which he was very vocal on behalf of the scribes.

  • Green light expected for Family Guy spin-off

    Cleveland will go off on his own, says report, along with The Pitts, Sit Down, Shut Up.
    You go, Cleveland!

    You go, Cleveland!

    At this point, Fox should just make Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane part owner of the network. The writer/producer has been nothing but money for Fox, with Family Guy and American Dad successfully complementing The Simpsons and King of the Hill on Fox's Sunday nights and redefining primetime animation.

    Now Fox can add a third show to the mix, says The Hollywood Reporter. The rumored Family Guy spin-off is pretty much a done deal, says the trade. Focusing on Peter Griffin's buddy Cleveland, Cleveland is expected to receive a 13-episode order at Fox's upfronts next week.

    If all goes according to plan, Cleveland will debut next spring.

    Cleveland likely won't be the only new toon next season. The animated reworkings of a pair of live-action shows, The Pitts and Sit Down, Shut Up, are also looking good to go.

    Both projects will be handled by Simpsons vets; Mike Scully and Julie Thacker will take on The Pitts, about an unlucky family, and Josh Weinstein and Bill Oakley were recently announced as showrunners for Mitch Hurwitz's Sit Down, Shut Up, based on an Australian show about disenchanted teachers.
